The most important festival in Bhutan is known as “Tshechu”. It is a religious festival, celebrated throughout the country, to commemorate the deeds of Guru Rimphoche, the founding saint of Buddhism in the Himalayan regions. It offers you an experience like no other, as you immerse yourself in the unique and vibrant culture of Bhutan through colorful mask dances and varied art forms. During the Tshechu people come together, dressed in their best attire, to witness these religious mask dances, receive blessings and renew their acquaintance. Highly popular festivals in the country are those of Paro in spring and Thimphu and Bumthang in fall/autumn.
