A popular festival, known as the Tsechu, held in honor of Padmasambhava, is celebrated in the Paro valley sometime during March or April.

It hangs on a cliff and stands above a beautiful forest of blue pine and rhododendrons.

Tourists can enter the monastery as per the timings as long as their guide has arranged the standard permit in advance. It is an experience to be felt in one’s lifetime.
