Festival Tour

Bhutan's festival Tours will take you through the Religious Dances of Festivals or Tshechus that take place throughout the country.These festivals are held in all districts in honor of Guru Rinpoche, who introduced Buddhism to Bhutan during 8th Century. Tshechus are one of the prime examples of the living culture of Bhutan that many have come to admire and treasure. It lasts up to three to four days in which a series of highly stylized masked dance rituals are performed.
