Welcome to Mongar
Many people spend a night in Mongar before continuing to Trashigang. There is, however, little of interest to see here. In eastern Bhutan most towns, including Mongar, are on the tops of hills or ridges, notably different to many towns in the west that are situated in valleys. It takes about 11 hours to drive from Jakar to Trashigang, which often means driving at night; this is a waste in such interesting and spectacular countryside.
