Merak and Sakteng are two remotest Gewogs (blocks) in Trashigang District where Brokpas, the nomadic yak herders have got to showcase unique culture and tradition. It takes two days to reach Merak on foot from Chaling, the nearest road head (29 km from Trashigang town) and two days to Sakteng from Phongmey, the nearest road head (33 km from Trashigang town). It is a day journey between Merak and Sakteng. The local dialect they communicate with, the dresses they wear, the life style they live, the traditional songs they sing and the dances they perform show how unique they are. Besides, the communities live in clustered settlement with uniquely designed structures.
The communities of the Gewogs depend on livestock for their daily living and for income as well. So called “Drukor”, they barter livestock products, such as butter, cheese, meat and fermented cheese for food grains from low land areas of Radhi, Phongmey, Shongphu, Bidung etc besides selling the products for cash.Schools under Sakteng Dungkhag:
- Sakteng Lower Seconday School
- Merak Primary School
- Joenkhar Community Primary School
