Tshechus are religious festivals held all throughout Bhutan which incorporate Buddhist ritual performances. These festivals are mainly constituted of Buddhist dances performed by masked performers, usually monks or trained laymen. The tshechus are one of the best ways to explore deep into the Bhutanese culture and way of life.
The Bumthang Ura Tsechu Festival is an annual festival that takes part in the district Ura of the Bhumtang valley. Bhumtang is especially famous for its many monasteries and religious presence. For this reason it has often been called the Bhutanese spiritual center. Tsechus are often done in honour of Guru Rimpoche, the saint who brought Buddhism to Bhutan. Local villagers gather in a spirit of festivity, celebration and deep faith to witness unique masked dances and celebrations.
Hop on this wonderful opportunity to witness one of the most important festivals in Bhutan and explore Bhutan like never before!
