The word “tshechu” in the Bhutanese language means “an annual religious festival”, and these festivals are held in many temples, monasteries and dzongs across Bhutan, on the 10th day of a month of the Bhutanese calendar. By attending such festivals, it is believed that one gains merits by seeking forgiveness for their sins in life. Monks and laymen perform historical masked folk dances in colourful costumes, and atsaras (clowns) amuse audiences with their tricks. Tshechu is also considered as an occasion for social gatherings; friends and families come together, dressed in their finest traditional clothes and jewellery. Why not plan your visit to to coincide with Bhutan’s largest festival in Thimphu? Thimphu Tshechu is held every year in September or October, one of the best seasons to visit Bhutan. This tour will give you a real appreciation of both the Buddhist faith and the Bhutanese way of life.
