Wangdi - Phobjika
Phobjika - Jakar (Bumthang)
Jakar - Ura - Lhuentse - Mongar

I am sure a t'log is in the Assembly Line

Does maps work in Bhutan? In Nepal, near the border, i.e. between Itahri and Bhimnagar, AirTel & BSNL used to work intermittently, but to my horror, Scorpio's maps went blank. You have to work through the old world hard copy maps?

I hope English or Hindi is understood in Bhutan.

TLog not started yet, planning for one :-D

I did not have data in my phone, so maps did not work. Offline map like Here map etc did not work properly. Locals said Google map works, could not check.
English is well understood in West Bhutan. In east Bhutan, had to use sign language in most cases, except at hotels.
