7-Day Thimphu Festival Tour

Highlights

This tour showcase the one of the most important festival of Bhutan along with sightseeing of Paro and Punakha.

Tsechus is one of the most important religious festivals and is an intrinsic part of Bhutan’s tradition and culture. These are performed and celebrated all around the country at different periods. Literally, Tshechu means the “Tenth Day,” and is observed on the tenth day of a month corresponding to the lunar calendar, the birthday of Guru Rimpoche (Guru Padmasambhava).

The origin of Tsechus can be traced back to the 8th century, wherein Guru Padma Sambhava and the Abbot Shanti Rakshita, introduced the dances and performed it when the first Buddhist temple was constructed at Samye in Tibet. It is said that through the performance of the dances, spirits living in the vicinity of the temple were subdued.

Tsechus became diverse and the number of Chhams (mask dances) increased as followers of Guru Rimpoche, especially treasure revealers (Tertons) and other enlightened masters, discovered instructions for such sacred dances, believed to be written by Guru Rimpoche and concealed in different places.
