Druk Padma Karpo School

Film Location in Shey

Though best known for its cameo role in 3 Idiots, this school of more than 700 students has a fascinating campus of prize-winning modern buildings incorporating the latest in sustainable technological engineering. It was essentially rebuilt following devastation in the August 2010 cloudburst. In season, 'briefing' talks followed by tours of the site depart several times an hour.

The visitors' arrival area has a small exhibition about the school and a gift shop. Nearby Rancho's Café is named after the 3 Idiots character who ran the school in the movie.
