There is no better time to visit Bhutan than during the Buddhist Tsechu temple festivals. The annual celebrations around Bhutan are marked by incredible colors and exhilarating festivity. The adventure begins before your plane even touches down as you are treated to breathtaking views of the Himalayas on your descent into Paro. Explore some of the memorable sites, such as the Taktsang Monastery built into a sheer mountain face 3,000 feet above Paro, before heading toward Thimphu for one of the largest Tsechu festivals in the land. Savor the drum and horn energy of the traditional dances, dramas, and other rituals as you immerse yourself in the spiritual drama. Carry on to Bumthang for a similar, yet distinctly different, experience and enjoy other classic Bhutanese sites, Himalayan views, and forested valleys along the way. You may conclude you are witnessing the most spectacular religious festivals anywhere on earth. (Note that festival dates sometimes vary on short notice and the itinerary may require amending at the last minute. Ask about other temple festivals held throughout the year and available on a private departure basis.)

Book early! Flights in and out of Paro during this time generally sell out within four to six months of departure.
