Trashigang is the largest and farthest district of eastern town of Bhutan with elevation ranging from 600 m to over 4500 m above sea level. The major towns in the district include Trashigang, Radhi, Rangjung, and Phongmey. Trashigang serves as a base for tourists venturing into the surrounding villages and mountains. It was once the centre of an important trade route with Tibet. Traditional architecture and narrow streets give the town a quaint and snug feel, not unlike an Italian or Cornish fishing village.

Further north from Trashigang is Trashi Yangtse. Trashi Yangtse has a great Nepalese chorten copied from the Bodhnath Stupa in Kathmandu. There is also Dzong, institute for Zorig Chusum, school of traditonal arts and a hospital. Dzong was built in 1659 on difficult terrain which makes it difficult for Tibetan invaders. Dzong is the headquarters of Trashigang Dzongkhag.
