Blessed with temperate climate and fed by Pho-cchu ( male ) and Mo-chu ( female ) rivers Punakha is the most fertile valley in the country. Until 1955, Punakha served as the capital and is even today the winter seat of the Je Khenpo ( chief abbot ) and the central monk body. The dzong was built at the junction of the two rivers in the 17th century by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal.

To the south of Punakha, located at the altitude of 1,350 metres, is the Wangdi dzong, built again int he 17th century. The dzong stands at the confluence of Punakhachu and the Tang-chu tiver. The highest reaches of the valley provides rich partureland for cattle. Phubjikha valley in Wangdiphodrang is the winter habitat for the rare black necked cranes.

Tongsa forms the central hub of the nation and is historically the place from where attempts at unifying the country were launched. The landscape around Tongsa is spectacular, and for miles on end, the dzong seems to tease you, wondering if you will ever reach there.

Mongar is the site of one of Bhutan's newest dzongs, built int he 1930s. Yet the dzong is built in the same method and traditions of all the other dzongs. No drawings and nails have been used. A visit to the dzong gives visitors an impression of how traditional Bhutanese architecture has continued to thrive through the centuries.

In the far east of Bhutan, on the bank of the Gamri river, lies Tashigang, the country's largest district. Tashigang dzong stands astride a hill slope below the main street. The dzong, built in the mid 17th century, serves as the administrative seat for the district, as well as the home of the monk body.
