Gasa

Gasa Dzongkhag is one of the 20 dzongkhags (districts) comprising Bhutan. It is the northern most district of the country adjoining the districts of Punakha, Thimphu and Wangdue Phodrang and with Tibet to its north. This starkly beautiful region with elevations ranging from 1500 to 4,500 metres experiences extremely long and hard winters and short but beautiful summers. It has the smallest population with just about 3000 inhabitants. Of culture, meet the people of Laya, the nomads of western Bhutan. These people live on yaks and harvest cordycep (fungi of high value, used in oriental medicine).
