Tsirang is situated in the South central part of Bhutan and is about 400-200 meters above sea level. Known for mild climate and rich biodiversity, it is one of the 20 districts in the country. When you are planning on your move for a long or temporary stay, it is important to have your vehicle to commute around the district as public transportation is negligible in the country.

Before you start the process of filing forms and getting the requisite permits, it is better to contact A1 Auto Transport service that is conversant with legal and customs procedures of different countries all over the world including Bhutan.
