Trashigang lies in the far east of Bhutan and is the largest District.Trashigang, once the centre of a busy trade route with Tibet, is today the junction of east-west highway with road connecting to Samdrup Jongkhar and then to the Indian States of Assam. This town is also used as the market place for the semi nomadic people from Merak and Sakteng whose costumes are unique in Bhutan.

Besides the exhilarating views of the countryside and the magnificence of the landscape, the place has so many more to offer, being the biggest district in the country. From Trashigang, one can experience the invigorating excursions to Khaling, Trashi Yangtse, Radi, Phongme and other nearby eastern regions.

The Dzongkhag has good accessibility and telecommunication facilities when compared to most of the Dzongkhags in the country. There are several goembas and villages that make a visit worthwhile, but a lot of driving is required to reach this remote region.
