bhutan festivals
Bhutan is the only country in the world where Vajrayana Buddhism is still actively followed. They consider their mountains as guardian deities and the mountain lakes and cliffs as sacred abodes of Buddhist gods.

Bhutan, "the land of the Thunder Dragon," is rich in culture and is popular for exuberant and colorful festivals. Bhutan Festivals are celebrated in honor of Guru Rimpoche, and most importantly, to indulge in contentment. Spiritual music, colorful wooden masks, brocade costumes, and amazing dance attributes to the Bhutan festivals.

Bhutan Festival Dates is an undeniable opportunity to revel in Bhutan's vibrant celebration, gain insight into the nation's culture, and intermingle with Bhutanese. Watch mystical dance while tranced by the soothing music and celebrate happiness in the Happiest Country in all of Asia.
