#27 of 137 in Things to do in Bhutan
The largest dzong fortress in Bhutan, Tongsa Dzong sits precariously on a spur overlooking the dramatic gorge carved by the Mangde River.

Consider bringing along a picnic to enjoy in a quiet courtyard. Our Trongsa online trip planner makes visiting Tongsa Dzong and other Trongsa attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
