Tshechus are also an important social event for the Bhutanese. People come dressed in their finest. Women wear their most beautiful jewelry, families pack their best food for lunch, men and women joke and exchange tales, and children crane their necks to catch a sight of the day-long dances.

3-country tour of Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet

I did an 18-day tour of these three countries through Adventure Land Tours operated by Chij Gurung in Thamel, Kathamndu. Arrangements done by Mr. Gurung were very good. Sightseeing and accommodations around Kathmandu were fine if you can overlook the traffic and bad roads around the city. Bhutan was exceptional, its a must see destination. And as for Tibet, I wouldn’t recommend anyone to travel to Tibet by road because road conditions are BAD, and it severely lacks in facilities. Lhasa is worth visiting so my sincere advice would be to fly into and out of Lhasa. If any one is looking for a personalized tour, I highly recommend Adventure Land Tours.
