Discover The Tsechu Bhutan

The Tsechu is the most well-known religious festival in Bhutan. Each of the sixteen dzongs organises this festival which is given in honour of the Guru Rimpoche at least once a year - usually in the spring or autumn. The night before the event, the valley resonates with the tinkling of cymbals and drums marking the recitation of sacred texts. During three to five days monks dance before the bewitched eyes of the population, who wear their best clothes for the occasion. For the foreign visitor, the Tsechu is an unforgettable experience and also the opportunity to visit some dzongs that are usually closed. The main tsechus are in Paro in April, Thimbu in September, Wangdu Phodrang in October, and Mongar and Tashigang in November.

    The focal point of the Tsechus are the sacred Cham Dances, based on incidents from the life of the 9th century Nyingmapa teacher Padmasambhava and other saints.
