Visit Wangdiphodrang, Bhutan
A large village, Wangdiphodrang is home to many traditional Bhutanese houses and has a unique, ramshackle feel to it. The dzong here dominates the town which overlooks the confluence of two rivers.
East of Thimpu lies the Wangdi Valley where terraced fields stretch away in shades of green and yellow.
At the confluence of the Mo and Tang Rivers, the Wangdiphodrang Dzong rests on the spur of a hill. Built to resemble a sleeping bull, this large dzong is a striking sight and there are excellent views across the valley.
Following the river-bank, there’s the chance to see picture-book villages and craftspeople working with bamboo and slate.
