Tour Summary

The Nimalung Tshechu is held on the 5th month of the Bhutanese calendar in front of Nimalung temple, located in Chummey valley in Bumthang Dzongkhang (district). During this festival, a giant Thongdrol (or Thangka) with applique work with images of Guru Rimpoche is put on display. The sight of this Thongdrol is said to cleanse the sins of all those who look upon it. This festival is observed for three days with great joy with a series of spectacular mask dances and historical folk dances. In this trip, we desire to take you through the heart to core of Bhutan and try to give you the glimpse of Bhutan’s rich culture and tradition.
