Wangdue Phodrang Tour 2024 -Package, Cost & Itinerary Overview

This is the last town before entering Central Bhutan. Sitting on the top hill, the formidable dzong is the town’s most visible features. The town itself is the little more than an enlarged village with well- provided shops and hotels. The road from Wangdue to Trongsa is one of the prettiest in Bhutan passing through streams, forests and villages before climbing the Petala pass on the Black Mountain ranges into the Trongsa valley. A few kilometres past the Gangtey Gompa is the village of Phobjikha, one of the winter homes of the Black Necked cranes which migrate to Bhutan from Central Asia.
