Trip Overview

Enchanted journey through the 4 western districts of Bhutan: Paro, Thimphu, Punakha and Wangdue Phodrang is the perfect way to know the mystical Kingdom of Bhutan. Discover its pristine natural environment, witness a dazzling annual Thimphu Tshechu festival which takes place from 7th - 9th October 2019 and encounter face-to-face with unique ancient tradition and rich cultural values that still remains vibrant and untouched alongside modern development.

Dressed in their finest and colourful outfits, thousands of people come to witness, to celebrate, to socialize, to receive blessings and pray for health and happiness. The monks perform skillful centuries old sacred mask dances interspersed with lively traditional folk songs and dances by men and women. Adding glamour to the festival, the clowns known as ‘Atsara’ are the integral part of this festival cheering and jestering the spectators.

Go farther beyond the capital city through rugged mountain pass clad in dense forests and beautiful fertile valleys, visit ancient monasteries and Dzongs (fortresses), explore rural Bhutan while you get to dine exotic local cuisine to your heart’s content.
