Tongsa Dzong, Trongsa

4.8
The largest dzong fortress in Bhutan, Tongsa Dzong sits precariously on a spur overlooking the dramatic gorge carved by the Mangde River. Although a temple occupied this site as early as 1543, the structure was eventually transformed into a dzong and went through various enlargements to become the current fortress. Consider bringing along a picnic to enjoy in a quiet courtyard. Our Trongsa online trip planner makes visiting Tongsa Dzong and other Trongsa attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Beautiful, wonderful access to the water. Powerful to see. In the temples of a dzong is it really forbidden to photograph. Do not do so. Here layers 3 very beautiful cameras with lenses to feast on ... the owners had ' secretly ' photographed. If the cameras, are now owned by the temple! Even on my question, this scene to photograph, to warn, very resolute no replied. In the dzong itself there are plenty of photo opportunities.
