Tshechu at Talo Village

The Tshechu is one of the reasons I came to Bhutan. Today we attended one in Talo that has only recently allowed the public to attend. The Tshechu is a religious festival. Monks do dances in great costumes with masks used to enact Buddhist fables. People wear their finest attire and really dress for the occasion.

Dried chili. Tried some of these - slightly sweet. Loving the chilies here!
