Thongdrel of Guru Rinpoche at Paro Tsechhu

Tsechus (festivals) are one of the best ways to experience the ancient living culture of Bhutan. A Tsechu is a Buddhist festival in honour of Buddhist Saint Padmasambhava, popularly known as ‘Guru Rimpoche’, the saint who was responsible for introducing Buddhism to Bhutan. The Tsechu draws hundreds of Bhutanese people in a spirit of reverence, blessing, festivity and celebration. The Tsechu comes to life with color, music, dance and drama as villagers and townspeople gather to witness the masked dances, sword dances and other sacred rituals. These events, most of which are performed by monks in colorful and elaborate costumes bring blessings to the onlookers, as well as instructing them about the Buddhist Dharma.

There are various Tsechus held all year around at temples, Dzongs and monasteries throughout Bhutan. Bhutan Stunning Tours & Treks

Guests have the option of staying in either our range of carefully selected, government approved tourist class hotels and lodges, or upgrade (additional costs) to superior, luxury hotels and resorts.
