Trongsa

Idyllic, rustic, and of supreme historical importance to the Bhutanese, Trongsa sits on steep ridge and offers spectacular views of the deep valleys surrounding it amidst deep halcyon peace.

Located in the heart of Bhutan, Trongsa has roots reach back to the 16th century and the very beginnings of the nation, built by the great grandfather of Zhabdrung Rinpoche, the father of the Bhutanese nation. The 17th-century Trongsa Dzong can be seen for miles around, a fortress that has protected Trongsa through the centuries.

The more modest Thrupang Palace features absolute serenity among the manicured grass and traditional structures. However, even though this hideaway in Bhutan is pleasantly isolated, the area does have the Yangkhil Resort, a hotel with all modern conveniences and with a view over the Trongsa Dzong.
