Bhutan Festival Tour

Bhutan Festival Tour will offer you an opportunity to enjoy a wide range of lively and vibrant festivals celebrated throughout the country. Festivals in Bhutan(Tshechu) are celebrated on the tenth day which is held annually in various temples, monasteries, and dzongs throughout the country. In addition, entire communities come together wearing the finest attire to witness religious mask dances, receive blessings, and socialize.

Bhutanese believe witnessing mask dances as a blessing and as an essential part to wash away their sins. Every mask dance performed during a Tshechu has a special meaning or a story behind it and many are based on stories and incidents from as long ago as the 8th century, during the life of Guru Padmasambhava.

Most festival in Bhutan takes place in spring and Autumn. However, the exact month of the Tshechu varies from place to place and temple to temple. The Dzongs come to life with colour, music and dancing as valley dwellers and towns folk dress in their finest clothes and join together to exorcise evil spirits and rejoice in a new harvest.
