Festivals in Bhutan

Colourful Celebration

Festivals, locally known as Tshechu, are colourful affairs, where people dressed in bright clothing and traditional masks tell age-old stories through energetic dance.

During the proceedings a gigantic Thangkha, a cotton or silk applique often depicting a Buddhist deity, is unfurled; an item so sacred it's believed that to simply look upon it is to be washed of sin.

Join the many locals for a day of feasting and dancing and to receive blessings at one of these hugely popular events.
