Trongsa Dzong is the largest and one of the most majestic dzongs in Bhutan and is a magnificent structure located on a ridge that overlooks the Mangde Chhu river. To it's South, it drops sharply into clouds and mist. There are two ways to reach this Dzong- Mangdue foot trail, which is a steep climb towards the Eastern gate and the other is a more leisurely walk to the Western entrance.
Trongsa Tsechu is also held on the Dzong grounds. What is interesting to note is that the only trail from Eastern to Western Bhutan runs through Trongsa and used to directly run through the Dzong itself.
A word of caution: Tourists are expected to dress respectably and modestly while visiting temples and other religious institutions. Shoulders must also be covered inside religious establishments. Since shoes are to be removed before entering a religious building, it is advisable to wear socks. Photography may also not be allowed at all places. It is advisable to ask the authorities beforehand.
