SAMDRUP JONGKHAR (alt. 233m)

The road from Trashigang to Samdrup Jongkhar was completed in 1960s and it enables the eastern half of the country to benefit from trade with the south as well as neighboring Indian state of Assam. There is little to see in this area but it serves as a convenient exit point to India. However, in recent years due to increasing presence of Indian militants across the border fighting for a separate state, the town has become a little risky for visits.
