Dzongkhag Profile

Lhendrup Rinchen Tsei Dzong


Lhuentse Dzong housed the Dzongkhag Administration office in the past. However, because of the devastating earthquake the administration offices had to be shifted to the temporary office near the entrance of the Dzong. The Dzong currently houses the Lhuentse Rabdey. Dzongkhag Tshogdu serves as the highest decision making body with an elected chairperson from amongst its members and Gewog Tshogde in Gewogs with the Gup as de facto chairperson.Nagtshang restored to its original grandeur. The Dzongkhag is enriched with deep rooted tradition and culture with every Gewog endowed with its own unique local cultural festivals which are celebrated around the year. Similarly Kishuthara the most coveted Bhutanese women’s attire is produced in this place, at Khoma, which is an hour’s drive from the Dzongkhag.

Six of our Gewogs are connected by the farm road (Tsenkhar being already connected by the national highway) with the Dzongkhag. The road construction for the Jarey Gewog is almost complete with only finishing works in progress. More over the Government considering the remoteness of the Dzongkhag and its high poverty incidence has begun the construction of 67 km Inter-Dzongkhag connectivity road with Bumthang. Introduction of rural telephone and B-mobile services has further shrunk the Dzongkhag into a small village. It has achieved over 98% of telecommunication connectivity with only Tsango village under Khoma left unconnected due to sheer distance. The Gewogs are soon expected to be connected with internet when its speed would be tremendously increased by optic fibre. Rural electrification covered over 68.42% of the total households while RWSS coverage is 96%.Catering to the education is thirty schools around the Gewog. Extended classrooms are provided wherever needed to facilitate enrollment. The NFE centers have also been increased to 62 from 51 in 2010. Consequently the literacy rate has increased to 60.83% in 2010 from 50.4 in 2005.

The Dzongkhag now with all modern technological connectivity and facilities can be considered at equal footing with other Dzongkhags.
