Bhutan's Biggest Festivals Of 2019

One of the biggest festivals in the country is the Thimphu Tshechu held at the Tashichho Dzong annually. Mask dances like the Guru Tshengye (Eight Manifestations of Guru), Shaw Shachi (Dance of the Stags) are performed by lay monks that add color and variation to the festival without compromising on its spiritual significance.

This festival is celebrated annually in the courtyard of Gangtey Goenpa in Phobjikha valley, famous for the rare migratory black-necked cranes. Different kinds of mask dances and short skits are performed during the three-day long festival.
