The Phobjika Valley, at 3,000 m (9840ft), is one of the few glacial
valleys in Bhutan and is the chosen home of the rare black-necked crane
which migrates here in winter from the Central Asiatic Plateau. The
valley of Gantey is one of the most beautiful places in Bhutan and
Gantey Gompa is the only Nyingmapa monastery on the western side of the
Black Mountains. This easy trek visits the villages of Gogona and
Khotokha, passing through meadows and fields, then forests of juniper,
magnolia and rhododendrons. One of the finest low level treks in Bhutan.
