A brief idea about the beautiful Jakar-
It is a quaint town that lies in the central part of Bhutan. The name of Jakar translates to ‘white bird’ which is in reference to the foundation myths. Jakar itself is a hustling two-street town and most of the shop fronts are new, as shops were rebuilt after three fires destroyed much of the town in 2010. There is an alluring wind blow from the south of a valley every afternoon, which makes Jakar nippy in the evenings.
