Trashigang District is Bhutan's easternmost dzongkhag .CultureThe inhabitants of Trashigang district are mainly Tshangla (Sharchop)s, which means "easterner" in Dzongkha, the national language. The Sharchops appear to mix Proto Tibeto-Burman and Tibetan blood whereas the Ngalops of central and western Bhutan appear to be mainly Tibetan.LanguagesThe dominant language of Trashigang is Tshangla (Sharchopkha), the lingua franca of eastern Bhutan. Two significant minority languages are spoken in the far eastern region of the district: the East Bodish Dakpa language and the Southern Bodish Brokpa language.
