Not quite in the same league as other dzongs around, but a quiet and tranquil place to visit. Glad I went, but don't rush to go there if you don't have much time.
Bhutan is good in restoring old places and most of its historical Dzongs (fortress) are restored. This one was also restored twice, but after third time as it was destroyed by fire they left it alone.So go inside and have an unrestricted view of the skeleton of a Bhutanese fortress and also the mountain range with Chomolahri, if the sky...

The place is in ruins. Possibly it offers a good view of Jomolhari peak. Other than that the place is not really worth visiting as there is nothing much to see. You have to travel along dilapidated roads to reach this place and it is simply not worth it.

Our driver enlightened us with a lot of stories about the purpose of the dzong before the fire, the Chinese attacks,... More
