An explosion of color that involve the whole community – be that 5 people or 500 – the festivals are between 1 and 5 days long and are centered around the Cham Dances, which are banned in neighboring Tibet and see locals dressed in bright costume and masks expressing moral stories of saints and sinners from Bhutan’s rich past.
