• The towns between western and eastern Bhutan also differ. In western Bhutan most towns are situated in valleys but in eastern Bhutan most towns, including Mongar, are at the tops of hills or ridges.
• Mongar Dzong – Although built in the 1930s and one of Bhutan’s newest dzongs, it is constructed in the same way as all earlier dzongs, without plans or nails. However unlike the earlier Dzongs, that are located in strategic positions, Mongar Dzong is located on a small gentle slope just above the town. A visit to Mongar Dzong shows one how traditional Bhutanese architecture has continued to thrive through the centuries.

Day 6: Mongar to Bumthang

• The drive between Mongar & Jakar is one of the most spectacular drives in the country. When crossing the Thrumsing La (Bhutan’s highest pass at 3,800m) we are now officially departing eastern Bhutan. The drive across the Thrumshing La pass and the subsequent descent from high altitude pine forest to lush pastures is long and at times tiring, the constant natural vegetation variation and change makes it one of the most exciting drives here in the country.Enroute visit the Ura valley, the highest valley in Bumthang and believed by some to have been the home of the earliest inhabitants of Bhutan. It allows us an insight into how the central Bhutanese live. The cobbled streets of the traditional village of Ura give a medieval feel. The old women of this region still wear sh2, 6eepskin shawls on their backs which double as a blanket and cushion.
