Bhutan Trip Advisor is Now 1-derful Bhutan Tours
TRASHIGANG: Trashigang district used to be the largest district in terms of population and land mass until 1992 when a new district, TRASHI-YANGTSE was carved out of it. People here speak Sharchop (Eastern dialect). Trashigang town is located in a small valley crowded with houses as it has very limited space to expand. This place is busy as people going to Samdrup Jongkhar Trashi Yangtse, Radhi etc all pass through it.
Trashigang Dzong: The Dzong is built on a very steep hill overlooking the Drangmechhu River. Kudung Pekar Choephel built the dzong in 1659 on the site originally planned by Trongsa Penlop Mingur Tempa. Trashigang Dzong means ‘The Fortress of the auspicious mountain’
Radhi: This is one of the most famous villages and is popular for its rice fields and traditional wool weaving called ‘Burey’. In summer you will be greeted by the green rice fields and in winters by weavers who weave in groups.
Merak-Sakteng Trek: This trek takes you to visit the villages of the semi-nomadic people of Eastern Bhutan. It starts from Chaling/ Khardoung villages, a few kilometres away from Radhi and takes you along the beautiful untouched mountains, first to the village of Merak, and then to Sakteng. They have their own unique traditional dress; men’s dresses are made from sheep and yak wool and women’s dresses are made from nettle fibres. Both men and women wear a hat made from yak wool which has 5 strange looking frills hanging on the side for the water to drip down.
