Understand[edit]

The predominant ethnic group in Western Bhutan are Ngalops, who are generally followers of the Kagyu tradition of Buddhism and tend to be taller than people in other parts of the country. Another characteristic of Western Bhutan is that the cities and towns are built besides rivers in wide valleys.

Talk[edit]

Dzonghka is the predominant language of the area, though English is common in Thimphu and Phuentsholing.
