“Bhutan has only limited connectivity to the world because of lesser frequency of international flights, I suggest all travelers to book their flight tickets right away as I don’t expect availability of any seat by January beginning,” says Lakey Wangmo

Now is the ideal time to plan that exotic vacation experience of a lifetime- bookings for group tours for Bhutan Travel during Paro Festival in April-2012 are open now via BhutanTravelAgency.com. Lakey Wangmo, the director of the company announced that in local press conference.
The Paro Festival is one of the most magnificent among the yearly festivals held in different districts across Bhutan. Held in early spring, the Paro Festival is a cultural legacy, steeped in religious symbolism of tantric Buddhism, and a major social event for the local community.
The highlight of the five day long festival, known as Tshechu, is the religious dances performed by monks in a 17th century fortress. These spectacular dances, believed to be the replications of dances envisioned by the 8th century saint Guru Padmasambhava, have remained unchanged for centuries. These precisely choreographed dances, with their intricate costumes and masks, and hypnotic beats, have stories and depictions of the tantric Buddhist universe and its various levels of heaven and hell, and are believed to have the power to bestow blessings and purify anyone who witnesses them.
The final day of the tshechu is an especially important one, as the gigantic applique image of Guru Padmasambhava, known as thongdroel, is displayed to the public. Viewing the thongdroel is believed to dissipate sins, and free the soul.
