Mongar town lies on a gentle sloping hill in the eastern region of Bhutan. The region is well known for its cultivation off Maize and Lemon grass. The locals speak the dialect called "Shar-shop" and they have a very popular tradition of serving the locally brewed alcohol called "ARA", as refreshments to their guest, be it any time of the day.
The newly opened Wangchuk Hotel is situated just above Mongar town and all the rooms of the Hotel have great views of mountains, valleys and farm lands. The Mongar dzong, built in the 1930s and one of Bhutan?s newest dzongs, is just a 5 min walk from the hotel
Really appreciate YANA's professional organization of the entire trip. Could not imagine how a trekking trip could such be well organized - more or less like a 5-star hotel with the only difference of we were at more than 3,000 above sea level. Special thanks to Yeshey and the chef who had given tons of assistance when I was descending due to attitude sickness. - Simon Liu, Hong Kong
