Amazing views of the dzong no matter where in the valley you might be, day or night. Amazing views of the valley from the dzong. Very impressive and imposing fortress/dzong inside and out. Photo ops from everywhere and every angle.

The monastry has the most stunning and well perserved mural. they are hidden behind curtains but do take the time to lift up the curtains and see the original works with such fine quality and color.

Old fort of Bhutan, situated at the banks of the place where two river joins. One river is said to be the female and the other one is the male. The fort is old but as every where in Bhutan its calm and quiet. Worth a visit.

This is the last dzong we visited before Tiger's Nest. It's on the 10 dollar bill, so remember to get one for your keepsake.
