Gangtey

Gangtey is the name commonly given to the scenic Phojikha Valley, which is located in central Bhutan, and is one of the kingdom's few glacial valleys. For several years, the cultivation of potatoes has brought a certain degree of prosperity to the local farmers, however, the area is best known for the rare black-necked crane which migrate from the Tibetan Plateau in order to avoid the extremely cold winters. These elegant and shy birds can be seen from the end of October to the end of March. The altitude of Gangtey is 3,000 metres.
