Chu Faat Dance

This old folk dance of Lepchas is performed in honour of the Mount Khangchendzonga and its four associate peaks, Mt.Pandim, Mt. Kabru, Mt. Simbrum and Mt. Narshing. These five hoary peaks are believed to be the storehouse of five hidden treasures such as Salt, Medicine, Minerals, Sacred books and Food grains.

Performance—Carrying butter lamps and green bamboo leaves, the dancers perform this ritualistic dance with the devotional songs. It is performed on the fifteenth day of the seventh month of the Northern Buddhist calendar every year.
