Bhutan: Festival Schedule

TENTATIVE FESTIVAL DATES FOR 2012

The festival known as the Tsechu offer the visitor an opportunity to see the colourful mask dances and religious art forms of Bhutan and gives the visitor an opportunity to interact with the local people.

The dances known as Cham bring blessings upon the onlookers, to instruct them in the teachings of the Buddhist dharma, to protect them from misfortune and to exorcise evil influences. It is a religious festival and it is believed one gains merit by attending it. It is also a yearly social gathering where the people rejoice together, dressed in their finest clothing and jewellery.
