From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Tibetan horn (dungchen; Tibetan: དུང་ཆེན།, Wylie: dung chen, ZYPY: tungqên; mongol : Hiidiin buree ; Chinese: 筒欽; pinyin: tǒng qīn) is a long trumpet or horn used in Tibetan Buddhist and Mongolian buddhist ceremonies. It is the most widely used instrument in Tibetan Buddhist culture. It is often played in pairs or multiples, and the sound is compared to the singing of elephants. Tsultrim Allione described the sound:

It is a long, deep, whirring, haunting wail that takes you out somewhere beyond the highest Himalaya peaks and at the same time back into your mother's womb.[1]

In Dosmoche festival 2018 at Leh Palace. Monks are playing long Swiss-style horns, known as dungchen, that can reach a length of 20 feet and collapse like telescopes for easy carrying. The notes produced by the horns are long, slow, low and deep, and have been compared to the sound of mooing cows
