Festivals in Bhutan are grand events. The entire community gathers to witness religious performances, receives blessings and engages in social activities. Extravagant costume dance performances, charming fire performances, legendary narratives and eloquent masks make people full of vitality and enthusiasm.
Tshechu is a festival of Bhutan, celebrated on the tenth day of the lunar calendar, which corresponds to Gimp Rimpoche's birthday. It is believed that every Bhutanese must participate in Tshechu and witness the Bhutan famous dance at least once in order to seek the blessings of his divine god. This is a large social gathering to instill a sense of connection in the community, especially for those who live in remote Himalayas.
