Serthi

Brief Background 

Serthig geog is under Jomotshangkha Dungkhag and it is bordered by Lauri Gewog in the North , Langchenphu Gewog in the South, Martshalla Gewog in the west and Arunachal Pradesh of India in the East. The Gewog has 14 villages with 373 households. Serthig Gewog covers an area of about 306.163 square kilometers. The Gewog experiences sub-tropical climate and altitude ranges from 600 to 2200 meters above the sea level. Since the Gewog is within the Chirapunji Mountain Range, it receives a heavy rainfall starting from June till end of August. The average temperature is 30 degree Celsius in the summer and 10 degree Celsius in the winter.
Serthi Gewog consists of mainly dry land in terms of land use pattern. Maize is the main staple food of the geog and it is widely cultivated in Kamzhing and Tseri. The community people derive their income from sale of NWFP product like Rubbia and thoksampa, and today with establishment of central school at Minjiwoong and with accessibility of farm road, the farmer have an opportunity to sale their farm product to schools and nearby market.
