Trashigang is Bhutan's largest district, consisting of three sub-districts and fifteen villages under its domain. It shares its borders with the Indian states of Assam & Arunachal Pradesh. The district is relatively extensive, covering some of the crucial natural reserves and biological corridors. Apart from that, it is also the main center of international trade from the neighboring state of Assam. Apart from the Paro International Airport, you will find a domestic Airport at Trashigang, the Yonphula Airport. Bhutan's most acclaimed college, the Shebrutse College is situated here as well.
This ancient fortress was built in 1659, to defend the region from invading Tibetans. The attackers retreated claiming it not on the ground but rather on the sky, owing to its astounding height. It is an architectural marvel.
Celebrated in the Trashigang Dzong, this event cannot be missed. Apart from locals, exotic nomads from the Merak Valley walk in to witness the celebration, making it a colorful and culturally rich affair.
Walk in here if you want to get your hands on some pure silk & traditionally dyed attires that are hand-woven by the residents themselves, who belong to the generations of expert indigenous craftsmen.
