Druk Wangyel Tshechu


Experience Bhutan’s natural and spiritual splendor on this trip, which also includes excursions to off-the-beaten-path villages and temples. While on this cultural holiday in Bhutan, the festivals and cultural activities that are enjoyed is primarily centered on Buddhist culture and heritage.

The sacred chham dances are each festival’s centerpiece. For hundreds of years, the old sacred dances have been passed down from one person to another. To master the precise movements and positions required for the performance, monks must complete a lengthy training.

Bhutanese see “Chham or Buddhist dances” as a visualization meditation, a tribute to ancient times and a physical representation of order, mastery, and transmitted power.

Instead of the traditional monastic body and laymen performing at the festivals, as is the tradition with all the other spiritual festivals in Bhutan, the Druk Wangyel Tshechu is organized by the Royal Bhutan Army.  This festival honors the army’s contribution to preserving the country’s sovereignty. The combatant dancers dressed in historical combat attire honour the brave men of war as well as the mystical Buddhist saint Jetsun Milerapa’s meditation dances from the eleventh century.
