Cafe break in new built Trongsa village

Cafe break in new built Trongsa village
Up until 1982, the three or four old houses that made up the village of Trongsa lay in the shadow of the dzong on a narrow piece of land near the stream, to the left of the entrance to the dzong. Then, in that year, the old village was razed to the ground and a new village started to develop along the road above the dzong. The impressive size of the houses, built in Bhutanese style, makes them appear like a rampart overlooking the dzong. Due to the configuration of the landscape, the village of Trongsa is hardly more than one street lined by well-stocked little shops and small friendly restaurants.
In a nice and idyllic Cafe shop we had a rest by drinking tea, eating tukhba noodle soup and nibbling orange cakes.
