This area is bordered by Dagana and Tsirang dzongkhags to the south, Tongsa dzongkhag to the east, Thimphu and Punakha dzongkhag to the west, and Gasa dzongkhag and a small section of border with Tibet to the north. Gangteng Gonpa is the main monastery of the district. This monastery is one of the main seats of the religious tradition based on Pema Lingpa's revalations and one of the main centres of the Nyingmapa school of Buddhism in Bhutan.
