Tsirang: About 160kms from the Capital city Thimphu, most of the inhabitants of this district are Nepali speaking Lhotshampas who live closely but scattered all over the hillside. It is a beautiful drive to reach there from Wangdue Phodrang as one crosses Punatsangchhu Hydro Power and Bhutan’s first tunnel which is about 2kms long, and along the river banks then slowly the hillsides come alive with settlements as the road meanders up the mountain to reach it’s main town Damphu.
Sunkosh: A small junction that divides Tsirang and Dagana road about 130kms from Thimphu, it is a great place to camp there. Once can enjoy the wild life, especially birds and engage in catch and release fly-fishing.
