Paro Tshechu is the biggest festival in Bhutan and is considered one of the major tourist attractions from all around the world. The festival is celebrated annually since the 17th century in honor of Padmasambhava, the Guru Rinpoche who is believed to be the one to bring Buddhism in Bhutan in the 8th century. The festival is held for 5 consecutive days which begins on the 10th day of Bhutan’s second lunar month every spring. The locals believe that by attending the festival and witnessing Thongdrol: the painting of the Guru Rinpoche, cleanses the sins off.
Our Bhutan Paro Tshechu Festival Tour is designed to experience the unique Bhutan culture by attending the festival and visiting the popular, sacred, and historical landmarks in the three well-known cities of Paro, Thimpu, and Punakha.
This 9-days tour package offers some of the country's most beautiful and finest places, monasteries, dzongs, local settlements, and monuments. The mask dance during the festival amuses the local viewers as well as the outsiders. The trip also includes hiking to the holiest place in Bhutan, Taktsang Monastery, a small settlement of Phojikha, and Khamsum Yulley Namgyal.
