Event Calendar

In almost every Dzong (monastic fortress) and monastery there is an annual traditional festival (in Bhutan these are called tshechus). 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. Due to the nature of the lunar calendar exact dates for tshechus vary from year to year.
