Umling Dungkhag is relocated from Gelephu erstwhile Gelephu Dungkhag. The current location is situated on the platform; a place so-called Thongjazor, Tashithang Chiwog under Umling Gewog measuring 5.38 acres of land. Dungkhag is located 71 kms away from the Dzongkhag HQ, Sarpang. The Dungkhag Administration formally started its functioning with effect from 13th February 2019 at its new office, Umling.
It administratively supports Dzongkhag Administration by providing support to the four Gewogs namely Umling, Taraythang, Chuzangang, and Sershong while three gewogs namely Jigmecholing, Samtenling, and Gelephu which were earlier under the jurisdiction of the Dungkhag were handed over to the Dzongkhag Administration.
Favorable plains and climatic conditions combined with fertile land offer tremendous opportunity for farm mechanization and commercial horticulture development and business for the people of four Gewogs under the Dungkhag
