Annual Chhukha Tsechu
The three day Annual Tsechu of Chhukha Dzongkhag began on 7th of November coinciding with the 7th day of the bhutanese calendar. Tsechu in Chhukha Dzongkhag was instituted in 1988. Chhukha has two ethnic (Ngalops and Lhotsampas) and we are very much blessed to be part of both the festivals.
The Tsechu is not only meant for the mask dance and blessings, it helps to bring together the distant relatives and friends where as large markets also congregate at the fair locations, leading to brisk commerce.
The third day Tsechu was graced by His eminence Home Minister and MP Dasho Rinzin Dorji. The day ended gracefully with the display of the Guru Thongdrel and blessings.
Very brief photos of the Tsechu are uploaded here.
