Trongsa is about four hours drive from Wangduephodrang and is right in the middle of Bhutan. It's the ancestral home of the Royal Families, and both the First and Second King's ruled the country from here.

Aside from the breathtaking scenery, the most notable feature in Trongsa is the Trongsa Dzong, which is thought to be the most impressive dzong in Bhutan. Because of its enormity, it can be seen from a great distance, and its interior is multilevel and contains numerous corridors and temples. Above the dzong is the watchtower, which houses two interesting chapels. Today this watch tower has been been converted into a Museum which displays all the crowns, dresses, scripts etc. of the Bhutanese Leaders which is worth a visit. Trongsa is known for its handmade bamboo baskets, wooden bowls, and bamboo hats, which are worn by farmers even today.
