Bhutan's Three Regions

Western Bhutan



Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, is a center for traditional Bhutanese art, architecture, and culture. Bhutan is a tiny Himalayan country. The distance between Paro and Thimphu, Bhutan’s capital city, is only one hour by car.



The stunning valley of Paro is home to a rich cultural heritage, amazing natural beauty, and a wealth of tales and folklore. Bhutan’s Paro has a lot of interesting places to see. 



The smallest Dzongkhag in the nation is Haa. With its virgin alpine woods and serene mountain peaks, this small area is among the most picturesque and remote parts of the kingdom. This valley remains one of the least frequented regions in the country and retains the air of an unspoilt, primeval woodland


Wangdi Phodrang

One of the biggest dzongkhags in the nation is Wangdue Phodrang. The district’s dominant structure, or dzong, was constructed in 1638. According to legend, Zhabdrung Rimpoche, who was looking for th


Punakha is a town in central-western Bhutan’s eastern Himalayas. The town, established in 1577, originally served as Bhutan’s capital. Between the Pho and Mo rivers, tributaries of the Sankosh, is where the old dzong (fortress, or castle) is located.


The Mo Chhu River’s banks are not far from the Gasa hot springs. This is one of the most visited springs in the nation, drawing both tourists and residents alike on a regular basis.

Central Bhutan



Great Buddhist gurus can be found in Bhutan’s Bumthang valley. The valley is still populated by Pema Linga’s descendants, upholding its religious tradition. The only brewery in Bhutan is located here as well. 



In Bhutanese, the name Trongsa means “New Village.” It is a historically significant location in Bhutan because, in earlier times, most rulers governed their realms from Trongsa, which served as their administrative center. According to legend, this is where Bhutan’s first monastery was established.

Eastern Bhutan



The town of Mongar is close to Bumthang. The route from Bumthang to Mongar, which crosses the 4,000-meter Thrumsing-la pass, is breathtakingly beautiful.

The tiny settlement is where eastern Bhutan officially begins. Mongar, the second-largest town in the subtropical east, is perched high above a gently sloping mountainside.



The scenery is breathtaking, featuring sharp cliffs, gorges, and deep evergreen trees. The area is renowned for its weavers and unique fabrics, which are typically regarded as the best in the nation. The Royal Dynasty also has ancestral ties to the Lhuntse Kurtoe area.
