About this trip

As soon as you land in Bhutan, you step into the cultural landscape of Bhutan – from the architecture, to the people, to the villages, food, monasteries and the environment. A highlight of the cultural richness of Bhutan are the annual festivals or also known as ‘tshechu” symbolizing amity, peace and compassion, are held in various parts of the Kingdom at different times of the year. The most popular festivals are the ones held in Paro and Thimphu. The Paro Tshechu takes place usually around March/April and the Thimphu Tshechu in September/October according to the lunar calendar. Mask dances, performed by monks as well as by the laity, are imbued with deep religious significance and depict rich cultural traditions. It is also a social gathering, where people dress in their beautifully intricate and colorful hand woven national dresses (gho for men and kira for women). 

Thimphu tshechu is scheduled for 19-21 September 2018 and  for 2019 from 7-9 October.
