Bhutan Sublime Expeditions

        Hidden Gems

Bhutan Sublime Expeditions offers personalized and professional tour guide services for your exclusive experience at Tshechu Festivals held annually throughout the Kingdom of Bhutan on the tenth day of a month within the lunar Tibetan calendar. Tshechus are religious festivals of the Drukpa Lineage of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. Tshechus are large social gatherings which perform the function of social bonding among people of remote and spread-out villages. Large markets also congregate at the fair locations. The Thimphu tshechu and the Paro tshechu are among the biggest of the Tshechus in terms of participation and audience. They are related to traditions in other branches of Himalayan Buddhism. The focal point of the tshechus are Chams (mask dances) and other traditional dances. These costumed, masked dances are moral vignettes, based on incidents from the life of the 8th century Nyingma teacher Padmasambhava and other Saints.
