Japan-Bhutan Friendship Association


MONGAR Dzongkhag (1,900km2)
…is now a gateway town towards Eastern part of Bhutan. It is monger town where two roads running through the country from East to West and from North to South meet. The town is relatively new, developed after the modernization process, which has launched in the 1960s.
There is immediate change in landscape from this point; the east has more fields and villages in the sunny slopes in the ridges of the mountains. The warm sunshine grows even subtropical fruits such as guava, mango, and sugar cane. At the moment, Kuri・chu Hydraulic power plant is under construction.
