No trip to Bhutan is complete unless you can attend a Tshechu or “Festival”. Tshechus are genuine displays of centuries-old religious traditions that we, the tourist, have the opportunity to witness as we immerse ourselves in rich Bhutanese culture. All festivals in Bhutan are rich in history and vibrant in color and should be on every tourist’s to-do list. Tshechu means “the tenth day of the month” and sacred deeds are believed to have taken place on this day. Tshechu’s are celebrated annually, for three to five days, depending on each district and local tradition. They are a form of oral history and tradition through which Buddhist values, mythologies, and spiritual beliefs are passed on to the community, mainly through colorful dance-dramas performed by monks and lay peoples.
Our Bhutan festival tour will provide you with a chance to enjoy the vibrant festival celebration in the country. Join with the locals in their finest attires, receive blessings from the secret objects or dress in Bhutanese costume, and taste festival delicacies. Definitely an exquisite trip of refreshment and happiness, with a witness to the important Bhutanese culture of this landlocked country.
Among others, we are focusing on a few popular festivals celebrated in Bhutan that is unique and different from other festivals. In case, if anyone is interested in other Tshechu festivals our team can customize them for you.
