Default To arindam_thokder: Hi Arindam

These are shots from the yearly festivals in Bhutan, called tsechus.
They usually last for four to five days, and many dances are performed, this is just one of them.
This particular tsechu was in Wangdue Phodrag and I preferred it to the much larger one at Thimpu.
They mostly take place around spetember/october of each year, depending on the Bhutanese calendar.
The exact dates for the upcoming year can be easliy found on the internet.
If you go: have fun!!
