Bhutan, the land of the Thunder Dragon, is a tiny Buddhist nation nestled in the Himalayas between the two giants, India and China. Bhutan is a beautiful county considered to be the last remaining Shangri-La. Bhutan is a "pays extraordinaire"; with no traffic lights, cigarettes, bill boards or plastic bags. In fact, the country measures its progress not through its Gross National Product but through Gross National Happiness.
The country is also known for its exuberant religious festivals known as Tshechus. Tshechus (festivals) are one of the best ways to experience the ancient living culture of Bhutan. A Tshechu is a Buddhist festival in honour of Guru Rimpoche, the saint who brought Buddhism to Bhutan. Every temple and Dzong in the country holds one Tshechu every calendar year.
Tshechus are exceedingly important events in the Bhutanese calendar and entire villages and cities come together to sing, dance, drink and receive blessings.
