Bhutanese Festival during tour bundle


The ancient Land of the Thunder Dragon hidden in the eastern folds of the Himalayas is home to the striking Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Lair) clinging to the edge of a cliff at 10,000 feet. This is where Guru Rinpoche, father of the Tantric strain of Mahayana Buddhism, flew over the Himalaya from Tibet in the 7th Century on the back of a flying tigress.

This tranquil kingdom—the mountain lotus of the world—protects ancient traditional cultures and gentle Buddhist values. Wonder at the distinct climatic regions, wild orchids, exotic mythology, charming architecture and myriad Tsechus (Religious Festivals) in villages such as Paro, Wangdue, Bumthang and also the capital city Thimphu. The Thimpu Tsechu is known as one of the most grand of all the bhutan festivals) Our Bhutan festival tours visit these religious festivals, held throughout Bhutan, where monks and secular dancers in dramatic masks whirl and leap to teach the ways of dharma and to honor the founder of Buddhism.
