Thimphu

Love a festival

sunny 18 °C

In Bhutan, each region has its own annual festival, tied in with the lunar calendar. My trip to Bhutan was designed to have a couple of days at the country’s largest – the Thimphu Tshechu.

I couldn’t hope to do the dances justice by trying to explain what they were about, so this post is just a visual one. Dance scenes and crowd scenes. Go into my gallery if you want to see the photos in larger format (link on the right).
