The Museum of Monarchy, The Tower of Trongsa, Ta-dzong was founded in 2008, the first museum in central Bhutan dedicated to our monarchs. The Museum was opened to the public on 10 December 2008 inaugurated by His Majesty the 5th King. Museum is housed in a seventeenth-century tower, Ta-dzong, on the upper side of the Trongsa Choekhor Rabten Tse dzong. From the beginning it started with an admission fee to all types of curious visitors. Visitor numbers have grown from few hundreds in the initial year to nearly 10,000 today.
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
