Trashigang and Yangtse Tour

Trashigang and Trashiyangtse are the two eastern districts of Bhutan which are rich in Bhutanese arts and legend. Very less number of tourists visits these parts of Bhutan and to encourage, government of Bhutan has waived off with daily sustainable development fee of US $65 per person and as a result tourists visiting 6 eastern districts of Bhutan (Samdrup Jongkhar, Pemagatshel, Trashigang, Trashiyangtse, Lhuntse and Mongar) gets a discount of $65 per day compare to those visiting the remaining 14 districts of Bhutan.
If you are around these eastern districts and have some spare time, do let us know to arrange this tour for you.

It is also referred to as the fortress of the Auspicious Mound. The dzong was built to spread the Drukpa rule over the eight regions of the east (Sharchog Khorlo Tsib Gyed).
