Trip Overview

Thimphu Tsechu is one of the largest festivals in Bhutan, it is held at the courtyard of the Trashichoedzong on presence of His holiness the Je khenpo, member of monk and the civil servant, in capital. Desi Tenzin Rabgay the 4th temporal ruler of Bhutan first started the festival. He introduced the Tsechu to celebrate the birth of Guru Rinpoche on 10th -12th Day of Bhutanese calendar.

Thimphu is perhaps the most unusual capital city in the world. Without any traffic light or Mc Donald’s, Thimphu is a hip place in its own rights. The Thimphu Chu meanders through this valley of about 50,000 people. Thimphu Dzong, also known as the Tashichhodzong, houses the Throne Room of His Majesty the king of Bhutan. This Dzong, completely renovated in the 60s by the third king, is also the summer residence of the Central Monastic Body.
