Festival Tours


The religious Festivals are most popular sacred and very common in Bhutan. Amongst the religious festivals, the most important are known as Tshechus (literally “day ten”). The dates and duration of the Tshechu festivals vary from one district to another but they always take place on or around the 10th day of the month according to the Bhutanese calendar.

Tshechu Depicts a great deed of Guru Padmasambhava, the great Tantric Master who introduced Tantric Buddhism in Bhutan in the 8th century. Therefore the Tshechu is considered to be the festival honouring Guru. During Tshechus, the different types of dances are performed by monks as well as laymen. Besides its religious significance, it is also a yearly social gathering where the people from all the corner of Bhutan come together dressed in all their finery to rejoice.
