Located in the heart of Bhutan, Trongsa used to be the center of trade between east and west of Bhutan. The Trongsa dzong was also the original seat of power of the royal family, the Wangchuck Dynasty. The valley is known for its folk songs and dances and some of the country’s best traditional singers are from here.
The Jigme Singye Wangchuck national park is located in Trongsa with various wildlife species such as leopards, tigers, and the Himalayan black bear. The only other attraction apart from Trongsa Dzong is the Taa Dzong Museum, which was originally a watchtower and has now been converted to a state-of-the-art museum financed and supported by the government of Austria.
