In the Bhutan bicycle tour when you will descend from the alpine heights into the temperate regions of Punakha, Wangdiphodrang, Mongar, Trashigang and Samdrupjongkhar you would be able to observe the small change in the flora, temperature and culture.

In April 1998 a fire destroyed the main structure of Taktstang Monastery, perched on the side of a cliff 900 m above the valley floor.
