Lhuentse District, Bhutan – Short Travel Video

Lhuentse District is one of the 20 dzongkhag (districts) comprising Bhutan. It is located in the northeast and consists of 2506 households.

Celebrated for its exquisite handwoven textiles (the pricey kishuthara textiles) and its earthen pots, Lhuentse is also a place of vast emerald-green forests, Bhutan’s untouched wilderness. It is the homeland of the Bhutanese royal family.

Lhuentse Dzong, one of the most picturesque fortresses in the Kingdom, sits atop a hill, offering breath-taking panoramic views of the surrounding valleys.

Khoma is a beautiful little village in Lhuentse where visitors can see generations of women weaving the highly prized kishuthara textiles in their homes. The district is also an area for bird watching, hiking and camping.

Most of Lhuentse District is part of the environmentally protected areas of Bhutan. The district contains parts of Wangchuck Centennial Park in the north (the gewogs of Gangzur, Khoma and Kurtoe), Thrumshingla National Park in the south (the gewogs of Gangzur, Jarey and Metsho), and Bumdeling Wildlife Sanctuary in the east (the gewogs of Khoma and Minjay).

These three parks are connected by biological corridors that crisscross the central and southern regions of the district.
