Festivals: Festivals in Bhutan are known for their richness, vibrancy and happiness. The ancient expressions of Buddhist culture and legendary victories are re-enacted and celebrated around the country with such pomp and show that it attracts visitors and tourists from around the globe.
Most of these festivals are dedicated to Guru Rimpoche – the saint who introduced Bhutan to Buddhism in the early 8th Century.

The mystical dances, engaging performances, brave fire events, mysterious naked dances, enlightening re-creations and such comprise the festive celebrations. Sometimes there are rare displays of silk paintings and/or some ancient scrolls. The festivals in Bhutan never let you off the high.

Tshechu, meaning “day 10” are yearly religious Bhutanese festivals held in each district of Bhutan. Tschechus are held to honor Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava), who brought a Tantric form of Buddhism to Bhutan in 8th century.
Those who witness a Tshechu are thought to earn merit, be bestowed great luck, and will have their wishes come true. Besides that, it is also an occasion to socialize and be merry. Before the Tshechu begins, prayers and rituals are done beforehand in order to invoke the deities.

Due to the nature of the Lunar calendar, exact dates for the tshechu vary year to year. Tentative dates can be downloaded from our website www.bhutantourister.com or from the Tourism Council of Bhutan website www.tourism.gov.bt
