Bhumchu Festival is a Buddhist festival, and it is observed on the 14th and 15th day of the first month of the Tibetan lunar calendar, which is observed in February or March on the Gregorian calendar.
The word "Bhumchu" is composed of two words: "Bhum" means pot and "Chum" means water. The Bhumchu Festival is a festival celebrating the sacred water.
One of the holy activities during the festival is to open the holy vase by the lamas, who is responsible for predicting the future based on the level of the sacred water. The sacred water is believed to bring prosperity and good luck to its consumers, so a huge crowd of devotees will line up waiting for the holy water. The vase is refilled with water and sealed after the water distribution, and then it will be reopened on the same day next year.
