Trashiyangtse Bhutan

Trashiyangtse (alt. 1700m/5580ft)

Trashiyangtse is a rapidly growing town and administrative center of the district. Situated in a small river valley, it is a lovely spot from which to take walks in the surrounding countryside. The dzong overlooking the town was built in the late 1990s when the new district was created. Trashiyangtse is famous for its wooden containers and bowls, which make inexpensive, attractive and useful mementos of a visit to this remote region.
