Trashigang is the center of a region and also the largest mountain town in Bhutan after Thimphu. The mild climate and flowering bougainvillea contribute to this atmosphere. It’s the place for sharchopas where local beverage known as Ara overflows in very household. People survived on maize and potato as the land didn’t favored the growth of rice. People from the Merak and Sakteng valleys stroll about with their little yak-hair hats pulled down on their heads. The topography of Trashigang town, built on a spur and backing on to the side of a mountain, defies any precise description. The commercial district is immediately at the back of the spur where the Dzong stands, while the school, college, hospital and the tourist guesthouse have been built somewhat higher and more to the north, in a kind of small circuit.
