Beautiful setting of the Haa valley (2700m) gives an impression of countryside at high altitude with thick forest bordering to Chumbi valley of Tibet. The main crops grown here are buckwheat and barley, and raise Yaks and cattle. At lower elevation, oranges and cardamom are grown for export.
Top visual priorities of the Haa valley are Lhakhang Karpo and Lhakhang Nagpo, temples which are believed to be built by the Tibetan King Songtsen Goenpo in the form of pigeon in the 7th century. Like other districts, Wangchuklo dzong (fortress) built in 1915 is situated close to the Indian Military Training Team (IMTRAT) camp. Headquarters of IMTRAT is in Haa to help Bhutanese military force in terms of training and weapons. Cold and windy top of Chelela Pass (4000m) between Paro and Haa gives an panoramic view of Himlayan range of mountains; Mt. Jomolhari (7314m), Jichu Drakey (6300m) as well as Kanchenjunga in Sikkim.
