Tsimasham is in Chukha district.
Tsimasham is the headquarters of Chukka district and is located on the main Thimphu to Phuentsholing highway. The town is somewhat barren and lacks any kind of charm or even cohesion. There is no reason to stop here, except perhaps to take a refreshment break.
All buses plying the route between Thimphu and Phuentsholing pass through Tsimasham.
- Chukha Dzong. The dzong is new and so lacks the treasures and charm of traditional dzongs. Still, the structure is impressive and worth a few shots of film.
- There are many restaurants that cater to passengers on the inter-district buses. However, the restaurants are uninspiring and the choice of dishes limited. It is best to prepare a packed lunch at the point of departure.
