Bho Yak Festival in Haa is of great significance as it celebrates the victory over the border with the help of Ap Chungdu, a local deity of Bhutan and the celebration honours the deity. It starts as early as 2:30 am where the monastic body recites prayers to appease the deity until 5:30 am. It is then followed by Ap Chundhu’s ride, a well-decorated horse bought to the Lhakhang and then led in Chipdrel procession with singing melodious traditional songs of praises and wishes for the well-being of sentient beings to Janka Kha where the actual event takes place.

The procession is then welcomed by the locals in their best colourful attire.
