According to SALB , some of Bhutan's districts are divided into dungkhags (subdistricts); some are only partly subdivided, so that there is also territory that is part of the district but not in any subdistrict (indicated as "(rest)" below); and some have no secondary administrative level (reported below as if they were a subdistrict with the same name as the district). I don't have any information to indicate which gewogs belong to which subdistricts.
