Description Tading Village, Bhutan Though bamboos are found in abundance in southern, south-western, and eastern parts of Bhutan, the best quality bamboos used for making traditional bows are available in a place known as Taba-Dramtay village under Samtse District. Samtse is located in the southern part of Bhutan and is situated at an elevation of 259m above sea level. It is a warm place and therefore the vegetation is suitable for growth of bamboos.The Zhu Shing (local term for the bamboo used for making traditional bows) from this District is considered the best.
