Due to its rough terrain, highly dissected mountains and deep valleys, Pemagatshel has very limited accessibility from the other cities of Bhutan. However, it is still accessible by a motorable road.
The closest airport to Pemagatshel is the Yonphula Airport in Trashigang which is connected to Paro International Airport. One can hire a taxi from this airport to reach Pemagatshel via the Trashigang-Samdrup Jongkhar Highway.
The best way to reach this remote district in southeastern Bhutan is by road. This offbeat destination can be accessed from the rest of the country by a side road that leads off the main Trashigang-Samdrup Jongkhar highway. Hiring a cab is the best way to reach Pemagatshel.
