The tiny village of Gangtey is in the Phobjika Valley which is known for the migration of the Black Necked Crane which winter there. The valley itself is unusual in Bhutan because it is very wide open as opposed to the steeper valleys of most of the rest of the country.

It is a stunningly beautiful valley and looks similar to parts of western Montana. To this day- there are two properties built there recently which accommodates travellers in comfortable settings. One is the US$ 1000 per night luxury resort and the other is the US$ 85 per night hotel built by the community (price may change) . The cranes reside there from October end to Mid March. A trip to Bhutan is not complete without a visit to this unusually beautiful valley
