Samdrup Jongkhar

Samdrup Jongkhar

The road from Trashigang to Samdrup Jongkhar, completed in the 1960s, enables the eastern half of the country to access and benefit from trade with the south as well as across the Indian border. There is little to see in this area, other than the busy market, which straddles the border. Enroute u will pass Pema gathsel
Pemagatshel is an independent district with its own Dzong. The road descends fairly abruptly through thick jungle before arriving at Samdrup Jongkhar. This town is small and bustling and acts as a commercial hub and entry and exit point in the southeast. Samdrup Jongkhar is a convenient exit town for tourists who have arranged to visit the neighboring Indian state of Assam.


" Bhutan is one of the most attractive destinations worldwide, not only for all nature lovers, but also for people interested in cultural and historical trips. While organizing next groups in the future, we are going to cooperate closely with our exclusive partner – Wangchuk Tours and Treks.
Thank you very much."
