Merag Gewog (Dzongkha: མེ་རག་, romanizedme rag) is a gewog (village block) of Trashigang District, Bhutan.[1][2] Merak and Sakten Gewogs comprise Sakten Dungkhag (sub-district).


Yak and sheep farming have traditionally been the main occupations in Merag, though sheep farming is on the decline due to it being more arduous and there being a distinct lack of grazeable pasture. Yak milk and butter are produced, along with yak hair for weaving clothes.[3]
