Tsechu (Festival) is a religious festival that begins on the 10th day of the Bhutanese calendar. We normally infuse Festival tour itinerary with culture, adventure, Nature and spiritual/wellness tour.
Festivals in the land of the Thunder Dragon are rich and happy expression of its ancient Buddhist culture. These festivals are held in all districts in honour of Guru Rinpoche, the Sant who introduced Buddhism to Bhutan in the 8th century. Tshechus ( festivals) are held on auspicious days and months in Bhutanese calendar, and last up to four days in a series of highly stylized mask dance rituals are performed.
People’s deep faith and devotion make these festivals a special occasion. At the same time it is also an opportunity to join hundreds, and even thousands, of Bhutanese in taking part in an important religious and social occasion that often exudes a carnival atmosphere. But for the visitors who prefer a more intimate experience, there are many tshechus in the smaller districts which are less crowded and where the local atmosphere is more relaxed and enjoyable. Small village festivals are best way to get acquainted with the spirit of Bhutan.
