Shingkhar Gewog Administration is bordered by Sengor Gewog of Mongar Dzongkhag in the east, Bardo Gewog in the south, Nangkor Gewog in the west and Chumey and Ura Gewog of Bumthang in the North. The Gewog is administered from the Gewog Centre established at Shingkhar, approximately 120km from the Dzongkhag Headquarter. The Gewog lies at an elevation ranging from 1000m to 4000m above the sea level. The northern portion of the Gewog falls under the Phrumsengla National Park. There are seven villages which have derived their names either based on the beliefs, observation, landscape or the time of settlement.
Zangling Village: the name has been derived from the combined word of zang and ling meaning land of copper. This is because a hollow stone considered to be a nye, a sacred place, located south of the present village, gives a sound of copper drum when it is beaten. The other popular sacred site located in this area is Ugyenpong (Guru’s sacred site).
Thajong Village: the village is considered to be the last of the entire villages in the locality to be inhabited by the people from Nimshong and Zangling village. Therefore, the village was named as ‘Thajong’ as it literally means last of the land or place.
Nimshong Village: the village is said to receive early sun in the morning compared to other villages in the vicinity. Therefore, the name of the village was derived from the term Nimjong meaning land of the sun.
Radhi Village: the name might have possibly derived from the sardonic term brag ‘dod meaning attachment to the landscape they occupied, surrounded by crag (Brag in Khengkha is cliffs) on three sides (north, south and east). Therefore, the name of the village initially could have been ‘brag ‘död’ changing to Radhi later.
Shingkhar Village: the name was derived from the word Zhingkham (abode of peace). The village has two important sacred sites of Guru Rinpoche (Kurje Nye and Tingkar Nye). Historically, Shingkhar village occupied a significant place in the history of the Khengrignamsum, where village (Shingkhar Trong) housed the office of Dungpa appointed during the reign of 2nd Druk Gyalpo to Administer the region until the position of Gup was created.
Wamling Village: the village was known as ‘Womailing’ meaning ‘land of milk’. ‘Womailing’ could have changed to Wamling due to change in pronunciation. Village also possess significant site, Tangtsho (Lake) located about half an hour walk from the Wamling Tshokeyling Dratshang.
Thrisa Village: the village was first occupied by settlers from Tunglabi, presently under Bardo Gewog as the new tax bearer (Threlpa) to the government. Thus, the newly occupied land came to be known as Threlsa, meaning Land for Tax, later it has changed to Thrisa. The other source says Thri meaning throne and Sar means new. A new village located on the landscape which appeared like a throne came to be known as Thrisar.
