The ancient region of Kurtoe or Lhuntse as it is known today, lies in north-eastern corner of Bhutan. This historically important ancestral home of Bhutan Kings hosts several sacred sites. The landscape around Lhuntse is spectacular with stark cliffs towering above river gorges and dense coniferous forests.  The region is also famous for its weavers and their distinctive intricately woven textiles called Kishuthara.
