Engaging dance performances, traditional folk music and mystical rituals are all part of Bhutan’s colorful Tsechus or festivals. People from all over Bhutan come together in their finest clothes to take part in the festivities. The men look dashing and the women beautiful in their traditional costumes (Gho for men and Kira for women). The engaging celebrations also give you insight into the dragon kingdom’s community life and their unique culture. Besides, it doesn’t hurt to know that the Bhutanese believe that attending a Tsechu and watching the masked dances washes away your sins, all the more reason for you to take part in the celebrations.
