The town of Samdrup Jongkhar sits at a high altitude of 233 meters in southeastern Bhutan. Known as the gateway to eastern Bhutan, it also serves as an exit town to the Indian state of Assam with which it shares its border. The bustling town center has an array of Bhutanese and Indian stores and hawkers selling their wares, and a few small restaurants and hotels. Among the attractions are the newest built Dzong (administrative and monastic institution) in Bhutan – the Samdrup Jongkhar Dzong, the three-storied Zangdo Pelri Temple, and a bison breeding farm. The wilderness of Khaling Wildlife Sanctuary and the Royal Manas National Park also beckon travelers promising sightings of rare fauna including the gaur, rare pygmy hog, and hispid hare.
