Radhi Village

  • Radhi is located 30 km east of Trashigang Dzongkhag on a north facing slope. It is partly a dry Chirpine belt in its lower part and the upper part is covered with a cool broadleaf forest. The Village is irrigated by two small rivers systems, namely Chongdiri in the east and Yudiri in the west. It covers 29 square km within an altitude ranging from 1,080 to 3,220 m above sea level and is a part of the Gamrichu watershed. Radhi village has more than five thousand population currently.

  • The Gewog is surrounded by the pastoral dominated Gewog of Merak in the south-east and mixed pastoral and arable farming in the Phongmey and Shongphu Gewogs in the east and west respectively. The small commercial town of Rangjung is in the south-west of the Gewog. It is famous for its rice and Radhi-Buray textiles.

  • The main agricultural crops that are grown by people of Radhi are paddy, maize, soya bean, potatoes and vegetables, which are mostly used for household consumption except for rice which is mostly sold. Radhi is often known as the ‘Rice Bowl of the East’ because of its fertile rice fields that supply most of the grain to eastern parts of the country.

  • Tourists can find the unique culture of eastern Bhutan essence, and famous textiles produced in Radhi using the traditional back-strap loom and traditional dyes.
