Visit to Samchi (Bhutan)

Chamurchi and Samchi (also written as Samtse) are in India and Bhutan respectively with a Bhutan gate separating the two. Historically this is one of the 18 gates through which the Bhutanese used to travel to the plains of India. These gates or Dwars have given rise to the name Dooars. One can cross the border and visit the Bhutanese city, there is not much restriction in place here for Indian and Bhutanese people to cross the border. There is also a monastery at Samchi which is worth a visit.
