Rhododendron Festival

Rhododendron Festival


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.
