Festivals

Visitors normally like to witness the colorful festivals of Bhutan. However, if you want to come and see some of these festivals please take note of the following important festivals for 2011. Paro, Punakha and Thimphu Tshechus are popular to tourists mainly for their proximities in the western region and others are equally charming and enjoyable but take  a day or two to reach by car. If you like travelling by road and watching nature, we strongly suggest that you consider to witness festivals in the central and eastern parts of the country.
