Located in central Bhutan, surrounded by deep valleys and amazing views, Trongsa is a small but crucial town that had controlled the trade of the whole country, linking the west and the east, due to its strategic position. Driving to the east, you can reach Jakar and Trashiyangtse with beautiful Bumthang on your way; back to the west, you will pass through Phobjikha Valley, Wangdue Phodrang, and Punakha and arrive in the capital area of Thimphu and Paro.
Trongsa - Strategic Junction in the Middle of Bhutan & Royal Family Historical Site
Trongsa is attractive and you can finish most attractions in the town on foot. The Trongsa Dzong, the must-visit site of Trongsa, built in 1644, has been witnessing the rise and development of the royal Wangchuck family since the era of the father of the first King of Bhutan. Not afar away from Trongsa Dzong, the Trongsa Ta Dzong, a watchtower which used to guard the Dzong has been converted into an impressive museum for visitors to learn about the history of the kingdom.
