Festival Calendar

Almost every monastery has an annual traditional festival called tshechus in Bhutan. Tshechus usually take place on or around the 10th day of the month according to the lunar calendar. The normal duration for a tshechu is three days. Visitors are welcomed to tshechus under the provision that they act in an accordingly respectful manner. Due to the nature of the lunar calendar exact dates for tshechus vary from year to year.

The following table provides an annual overview for the most prominent festivals. We will know the exact dates of tsechus about six to nine months in advance and can incorporate a festival into your itinerary. Tsechus are also celebrated in small less known monasteries throughout Bhutan which can be included in your program easily.
