Tongsa Dzong, Trongsa

#33 of 247 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. Although a temple occupied this site as early as 1543, the structure was eventually transformed into a dzong and went through various enlargements to become the current fortress. 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.
