Festival Tours

The most well-known festivals in Bhutan are known as Tsechus. It offers visitors the opportunity to see colourful mask dances and the religious art forms of Bhutan. The Tsechus are held in honor of Guru Padmasambhava, the Indian saint who is associated with the introduction of Tantric Buddhism in the Himalayan regions of Bhutan, Sikkim, Nepal, Ladakh and Tibet almost 1200 years ago. The Tsechus are also a time for people to gather together dressed in their finest clothes, to meet friends, celebrate and receive blessings. The most popular festival for tourists are those held in Paro during spring, Thimphu and Bumthang in autumn. We can design your tours around any festival listed.
