Bhutan Festival Holidays

 Bhutan Festivals Calendar

 

What's On - When & Where

See all our Bhutan Holidays Bhutan Festivals Information Page

You can use this Bhutan Festivals Calendar and see a complete list of festivals in chronological order". Many of the festivals are in the main tourist areas; Paro, Thimpu, Punakha, Trongsa, Gangtey and Bumthang. Some are in the more remote, far eastern parts of Bhutan. Needless to say, the more remote and isolated the festival location the less chance there is of sharing the experience with hundreds of other tourists.

 

This 2018 Bhutan Festival Dates information is provided by the Toursim Council of Bhutan - ALL dates indicated should be considered as TENTATIVE and if you are wishing to witness any of the festivals below as part of your Bhutan Festival Holiday, please CONTACT US and we will check the latest informnation for you. It's a very long list!
