Attractions in Samtse bring you to share the people of Samtse into two major indigenous groups, the Lhotshampa, and the Doya or Lhop. Smaller groups of Bumthaps, Tshanglas, Ngalongs, Khengpas, and Kurtoeps have also been found populating the district in recent times.
Samtse is a religiously diverse region, and both Hinduism and Buddhism are widely followed in the dzongkhag.
Visitors will find temples belonging to both religions all over the beautifully forested region. The major festivals observed in the district include Losar (New Year), Thrue and Lomba by the Buddhists, and Diwali and Dussehra by the Hindus.
