Jambay Lhakhang Festival Tour

Trip Overview of Jambay Lhakhang Festival Tour

Bhutan’s numerous festivals are a joyful expression of its culture – and largely inspired by Buddhism.

The Tshechu – or the masked dance festivals – is a rare occasion and a living testimony to the country’s ancient past. These festivals are a dedication to Guru Rinpoche who brought Buddhism to Bhutan in the 7th century. They are held in every district (often in the Dzongs) annually. As it has happened for centuries, people continue to converge at festivals both to pursue their spiritual practice, and to participate in the community event. The Tshechu is a place to see and be seen.

Tshechus are also an important social event for the Bhutanese. People come dressed in their finest. Women wear their most beautiful jewelry, families pack their best food for lunch, men and women joke and exchange tales, and children crane their necks to catch a sight of the day-long dances. (22nd-26th Oct).
