Trongsa is the central most part of Bhutan. The road to Trongsa is windy but beautiful with rhododendron, magnolia and cherry blossoms in spring season and summit of Mt Jomolharo (7314m) in the west. Pele-la Pass (3300m) is marked with prayer flags and small Chorten or stupa. A Tibetan saint came to Trongsa and while he was under meditation, he saw a lamp lit down the ridge. Taking that as good omen, he built a temple and later few temples came up looking like a small village, hence the name Trongsa (new village). In 17th century, Zhabdrung built the original dzong and named it Choekhor Rabentse. Trongsa dzong played very important role in Bhutan’s history in 19th century. Father of first king of Bhutan, Jigme Namgyal gained power in the 19th century by controlling the main route from east to west. He started his profession in Trongsa dzong at the lowest level and later became the Trongsa Penlop (governor).  Thereafter, all the crown prince shall be appointed as the Governor of Trongsa prior to coronation as the king of Bhutan. 
Trongsa divides east and west by the Jigme Singye Wagchuck National Park or Black Mountain Park, the second largest park in the country after Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Park in the west. The dense and primeval forest is the home for Himalyan black bear, musk deer, Royal Bengal Tigers, Red Panda, rare clouded leopard and golden langur, which is endemic to Bhutan. Most of the bird species about 291 including Black Necked Cranes are found here.
