Wangduephodrang Dzong
Gangteng Valley

Wangduephodrang is the last town on the highway before entering Central Bhutan.

The Wangdue Dzong is perched on a spur at the confluence of two rivers. The position of the Dzong completely covers the spur and commands an impressive view over both the north-south and east-west roads.

In the 17th century, Wangduephodrang played a critical role in unifying the western central and southern Bhutanese districts.
