Zhemgang lies in the south central part of Bhutan. It is one of Bhutan’s least discovered districts and a destination that is truly a “off the beaten track”. The temperature is moderately cool that translates it into a biodiversity hot spot which is home to as many as 22 endangered species including the Golden Langur.
The indigenous art of bamboo work such as the making of mats, boxes, bangchungs (colourful bamboo bowls), palang (alcohol container) and balaks (hats) are prominent in this region.
People here are much relaxed and the very atmosphere radiates an aura of flattering serenity and relaxation. Agriculture and farming forms the main backdrop of livelihood. Most settlements are far flung from modernity and this translates only into further insight of traditional Bhutanese society undeterred by any changes.
