Samdrup Jongkhar

Samdrupjongkhar Dzongkhag (District)

There is little for travelers to see in this area but while traveling from Trashigang to this valley, en route you have some interesting places to visit beside the scenic drive. The town is used as an exit town to reach to the nearest airport at Guwahati, the Indian state of Assam. The valley is also a commercial centre for the eastern people. It is situated in the south-eastern part and has its border with the Indian state of Assam to the south, Trashigang to the north and Pema Gatshel District to the west.

The major portion of the district falls within the sub-tropical belt and lies at elevation from 200m to 3500m above sea level. The district is a producer of hardwood such as teak, sal, and sisoo used to create furniture. It is also an important gateway to the eastern regions of Bhutan.
