In the winter, black-necked cranes from Tibet visit the Phobjika Valley to roost. On arrival, the cranes circle the Gangteng Monastery there three times, and also repeat the process upon returning to Tibet. I visited in the spring time, so no black-necked cranes to see unfortunately. However, like everywhere else in Bhutan, the valley offers its stunning natural beauty, accented by a few stupas and a number of prayer flags.
