The Local Culture Of Bhutan For The International Travellers

By Expert Author: Ninad Chaudhri

Bhutan, a stunning city in the middle of Himalayas is known for its enchanting landscapes, treks and monasteries. But, the local people, culture and festivals create a string of unique experiences. They not only have their own simplistic philosophy and beauty, but also refreshing cultural charm. Though, most Bhutan packages are still known for the au naturale beauty, the local culture is rapidly becoming an additional reason to hop on to plane for this travel package.

Though, Bhutan culture was very closely tied to Tibetan culture as they both are Buddhist cultures. However, it has its own flavour and grace about it. As a country, there is quite a strong insistence of preserving the beauty of the past while assimilating the advantages of 21st century developments. So when you refer to Bhutan culture, you will still see that Bhutanese communities still address their marriages, funerals, and food reflects their simple living philosophy while their festivals are the exception.

If you are planning an international holiday package that includes a visit to Bhutan, it is highly recommended that you check their festival calendar. Though, it is different than most international destinations, Bhutan packages with the festivals will be far more enriching experience.

Two most popular festivals that are celebrated across Bhutan are Losar (New Year), which is a three day celebration and Tschechu, which is celebrated on the 10th day of the month by the lunar Tibetan calendar. These two festivals are celebrated nationwide. In fact, Tschechu is celebrated in different months based on the place. Though, the most popular holidays to witness Bhutanese magic are the travel packages with a visit to Thimphu or Paro in your itinerary. The capital of Bhutan and the little historic town are very popular for their festive celebrations. But, the intimate celebrations in different village are gaining popularity in the international holiday packages as they are far more personal and intimate.

The other festivals you can consider for the Bhutan packages are Thimphu Festival, Haa Summer Festival, Kurjey Festival, Black Necked Crane Festival, Nimalung Festival, Chorten Kora Festival , Nomad Festival, Wangdue Phodrang Festival, Gomphu Kora Festival, Punakha Festival, Trashigang Festival , Pema Gatshel Festival, Jampa Lhakhang festival, Mongar Festival, Lhuentse Festival, Takin Festival, Trongsa Festival, and Ura yakchoe. In spite of this large variety of festivals, most tourists plan their travel package to include Tschechu at different destinations like Merak, Paro, Thimphu, Sakten, etc.

So, how will you like to include some of the local charm in your Bhutan packages? That will depend on the rest of the itinerary too. If you are a serious trekker, you might check up if you have some festivals near your base camp destination. If you are a Buddhist traveller, your travel packages must include a chance to be part of these festivities as most of them are very closely tied in with their spirituality. Bon voyage, travellers.
