Festivals in Bhutan draw hundreds of Bhutanese people in a spirit of reverence, blessing, festivity and celebration, and is one of the best ways to discover the rich cultural heritage of Bhutan. These festivals come to life with colour, music, dance and drama as villagers and townspeople gather to witness the masked dances, sword dances, sample local cuisine, participate in traditional games and other sacred rituals.

They are also very popular with international guests visiting Bhutan, though it can be a challenge sometimes to plan a trip to Bhutan incorporating a festival. Please contact us and we can easily tailor design an itinerary to suit.
