We often call the southern circuit as the hub of Bhutan’s unique nature trips. Talk of Zhemgang; we have the endemic species of primates called the Golden Langur. Next we have the Rufous-necked Hornbill which is another specialty. It is the only circuit where we can watch wild gaurs, elephants, rhinos, tigers, clouded leopard and any you would want to see in a tropical jungle.
