Shrawan Purnima  is taken as an important festival in Jumla and Karnali. Pilgrimage goes for a day to week walk to Malika for bathing their god and goddess as well as taking Chaapbido to new Dhami (Healer ), chaapbido also called .

Thakurgy temple is located at Jumla district at the border of Jajarkot district.This temple is situated at 4554m height from sea level that dedicated to goddess Bhagawati. The natural view and the deep believe on Thakurgyu Malika make this place popular. 

This place is full of pilgrims during Janai Purnima. This year due to Lunar eclipse less people visited this temple.

Thakurgyu lake
This area is also called home of lakes where we can see religiously important lakes called Bistagyu Daha (4425m),Sankha Daha (4470m),Hudkey Daha,and Thakurgyu lake (4554m) at Thakurgy Temple.The Gidhi Daha is another important lake lies closed to chaudhary Pass.Due to heavy fog I could not able to take photos.  The depth and length of  all lakes are not yet measured.

As this is located in remote area one should totally self managed while trekking to this area.Eating rice, alcohol,meat after Thulo Haka Meadow is restricted because of cultural aspects.
Everyone can get attracted by its meadows,lakes and mountains on its travel. This area is famous for Yarshagumba ,many important herbs and different flowers.Thakurgyu area has numbers of meadows important for farming domestic animals like sheeps,horses and cows. These grassland called Duni ,Chaudhary Vitto,Sano Haka,Thulo Haka and Pansaya Patan(Meadow) and more .
Bistagyu Lake (4425m asl)
 This area is the home of wild animals like Bear,Ghoral,Musk Deer(Kasturi) and many more.
Sheepards Mr.Dalgit Budha from Pere said these years we do not see even a single Kasturi ,Bear because I hope  illegal hunting and trapping of iron wire finish these wild animals.

There are many to be researched and to be done about herbs,flora and fauna,birds and animal in this area.
