Experience the rich architectural and social makeup of Bhutan, by taking a little road trip to a couple of the other towns and cities in the vicinity of Trongsa.

Around 65 miles (105 kilometers) to the west of Trongsa is Paro, a regional center where you'll find Kyichu Lhakhang, Bhutan National Museum and Drukgyel Dzong. And don't head back to Trongsa until you've investigated Paro's Rinpung Dzong and Taktshang Monastery.
This region is home to a truly fascinating religious history; learn more about is at the area's most important monasteries.
A great way to experience the wild landscapes in the area around Trongsa is to sign up for a hiking or mountain climbing adventure.
Taste the culture of Bhutan by checking out popular local food. Chicken and yak are commonly used as part of meals in this area. Of course no trip to this region is complete without ordering a paa (sliced pork and beef) and zow shungo (rice and vegetables). Those who have a little room left, should try sweet banana soup with tapioca, the perfect way to round out your Bhutan culinary experience. If you feel as though you'd like something non-alcoholic, black tea is a popular local choice.
The most convenient major airport, Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport, is located in Guwahati, 120 miles (193 kilometers) to the southeast of Trongsa, a handy point to remember when planning your trip.
