Places to Visit in Bhutan

There is much to see and do in Bhutan in addition to simply taking in the breathtaking scenery.

Bhutan is divided into 20 districts, though several of them have restricted access and are not open to tourists.

The districts open to tourism and through which tours and treks usually operate include Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, and Wangduephodrang in western Bhutan; Trongsa and Bumthang in central Bhutan; and Mongar, Lhuntse, Trashigang, and Tashiyangtse in eastern Bhutan.

The Tshechu (Annual Festival)

The Tshechu is a festival honoring Guru Padmasambhava, 'one who was born from a lotus flower'.

This Indian saint contributed enormously to the diffusion of Tartaric Buddhism in the Himalayan regions of Tibet, Nepal, and Bhutan around 800 AD.

He is the founder of the Nyingmapa, the 'old school' of Lamaism, which still has numerous followers.

The biography of Guru is highlighted by 12 episodes of the model of the Buddha Shakyamuni’s life. Each episode is commemorated around the year on the 10th day of the month by 'the Tshechu'.

The dates and the duration of the festivals vary from one district to another but they always take place on or around the 10th day of the month according to the Bhutanese calendar.

The Tshechu is a religious festival and by attending it, it is believed one gains merits. During Tshechu, the dances are performed by monks as well as by laymen.

It is also a yearly social gathering where the people, dressed in all their finery, come together to rejoice.
