Gelephu in Bhutan
Photo Credit :

Gelephu aka Gelyephug, Gelegphu, Gaylegphug or Gaylephug, sees itself as a town in the southern region of Bhutan. The town is located in Sarpang District in Bhutan. The town of Gelephu borders with India and thus makes an important centre for the inter border trade. Gelephu serves as the entry zone for the famed Royal Manas National Park, the oldest nature preserve of Bhutan. The place houses diverse flora and fauna to be appreciated. One can look here for Golden Langurs, Gangetic Dolphins, and the Asian One-horned Rhinoceros.

Gelephu is in South Bhutan and the climate is warm, sub-tropical and humid and remains fairly unchanging all year around. In summers the temperature could cross thirty degrees centigrade that is why most hotels in Gelephu have air conditioning. This is also why south Bhutan is one of the zones of Bhutan you can easily explore in winters (temperature will range around 10 to 18 degrees C). Gelephu is documented for cross border trade and you’ll visit this city for a few unpunctual looking. The Hong Kong Market area is good for buying fancy items, apparel, and accessories. Gelephu is adjacent to Dadgiri in the Chirang district of Assam.
