Damphu is acclaimed for its mild hills and moderate temperatures. We also remark on the dzongkhag for its splendid biodiversity; however, it is one of the few dzongkhag without a protected zone. One of Bhutan’s longest rivers, the Punatsangchu or Sunkosh tributary flows through the region. It is the main region where the Lhotshampa (Nepali-speaking Bhutanese) live. The prevalent dialect in the community is Nepali, spoken by the heterogeneous Lhotshampa. In the north of Damphu, they also speak Dzongkha.
