Eastern Bhutan Trips
Even though it is densely populated, Eastern Bhutan remains the Kingdom's hinterland. Roads reach the major towns, but there are numerous isolated and hidden valleys among the hills some of which are home to minority ethnic groups comprising less than 1,000 people.
The dominant language here is Sharchop, the language of the East, although there are many different languages and dialects. Sharchop is different enough from Dzongkha that people from Eastern and Western Bhutan have to use English or Nepali to comunicate.
