If you are looking for a trip to Bhutan in September, we duly suggest and invite you to see this package (Eastern Dragon Fest) and if you find it interesting. Well, look no further than this trip with off the beaten track festival! This amazing adventure takes us all the way across the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, as you drive from west to central valleys and to the far remote east, all through some of the most beautiful and unspoiled scenery in the world. The highlight is a little-known festival in one of the hamlets of Lhuntse, one of Bhutan’s most remote eastern regions. The three-day festival called Wangshing Rabna (20th – 22nd Sep, 2012) gives you the chance to experience an event which has been practiced unchanged for centuries. Everyone is welcomed and treated as family, whether you are a local, a foreigner, or visiting from another part of Bhutan. You will interact with the performers and festival goers and are encouraged to participate in all the very unique Wangshing Rabna rituals and traditions. This is total immersion. You are not a tourist on the sidelines. Ancient customs will be followed from the time the locals welcome you until they say farewell. This annual Wangshing Rabna is held only in this place, by these local people, to pay homage to Guru Rinpoche, who they consider as second Buddha. In no other part of the country will you see the mask dances or other rituals performed here. Each year, quite a large numbers of foreign travelers visit the most well-known festivals, at Thimphu and at Paro but at this festival there will be very few outsiders and this will make the experience even more special, as we stroll amongst the colorful masked dancers and the equally colorful audience dressed in their finest Ghos (Men’s costume) and Kiras (Women’s costume). For the first time in history, a group of five tourists participated in this festival last year. They state that it was “a profound experience—the chance of a lifetime.” No doubt, this is an ultimate choice to see Bhutan at its best.
