Spring and summer festivals to look forward to in Bhutan
Many tourists visit Bhutan to experience the country's fascinating festivals. The Tshechu festivals, held in temples, monasteries, and dzongs (fortresses) all over Bhutan, are a highlight.

    At picturesque Punakha Dzong, the Punakha Drubchen hosts a dramatic recreation of the scene from Bhutan's 17th century battle with the Tibetan army, who came to seize a precious relic. It's one of the country's most popular Tshechus.

    Held every spring at Rinpung Dzong, this is the most popular religious dance festival in Bhutan. Early in the morning on the last day of the celebration, the monks display a huge thangka (painting) inside the dzong.

  • Ura Yakchoe

    The Ura Valley in Bumthang is renowned for its Ura Yakchoe dance, performed at this festival. During the festival, a sacred and important relic, passed on from generation to generation, is put on display so that people can receive blessings from it.
