Trashigang

In the far east of Bhutan, on the banks of Dangmechu, lies Trashigang, the country’s largest district. Once the center of a busy trade route with Tibet, Trashigang is today the junction of the eastern corners of the kingdom with India with a road connecting to the border town of Samdrup Jongkhar.

Vividly colored handloom cloth and endisilk spun from cocoons bred from castor oils plants, are local specialties. Other places of interest area Chorten Kora in Tashi Yangtsi, Khaling Handloom Center and the Radi Village which is the gateway to Merak and Sakten in the easternmost part of Bhutan.
