Gangtey is a Bhutanese mountain escape for nature lovers

Above all others, one destination in Bhutan stands as a firm favourite among nature lovers. They are drawn to Gangtey not only for its spectacular beauty, but also for its status as a wildlife conservation area. Let’s not forget, either, the sensational outdoor activities on offer here.

Located in a vast U-shaped glacial valley, Gangtey is surrounded by scenic black mountain ranges. At an altitude of 3,000 metres, it stands in stark contrast to the dense forests that cover much of Bhutan.

Rich in wildlife, the area is famed for the rare black-necked crane that migrate here every year from the Tibetan plateau. The popular Black Crane Festival is held each winter at the Gangtey Gonpa monastery, celebrating the arrival and ceremonial significance of the flocks of birds.

Perfect for trekking and mountain biking, our experts will help you to plan the most rewarding routes, such as the exhilarating walking trail which stretches between Gangtey Gonpa in the Phobjikha Valley and the Kungathang Lhakhang.
