The Gangtey valley is one of Bhutan's most stunning open valleys and is home to the endangered black necked cranes (Grus Nigricllis), who migrate to this valley from Tibet around mid November. For millennia, these cranes have captivated human imaginations with their intellect, poise, sociality, beauty, and independence, inspiring numerous stories, legends, folktales, and songs.
