Adha Rukha

Located under the Wangdue Phodrang Dzongkhag, the villages of Adha and Rukha are excellent places to gain insights into the lives of rural Bhutanese farmers. While it is possible to camp out during your visit we recommend asking your guides to arrange a home-stay with one of the local families. The farmers will happily welcome you into their homes and regale you with local legends of mermaids and ancient kings. It is usually better to schedule your visit during autumn as these areas are prone to leeches, sand flies and mosquitoes during the summer.
