Picnic Lunch Black-Necked Crane Festival Gangtey Monastery
Change of Plans
We arrived at Gangtey Monastery in Phobjikha Valley around lunchtime. We were originally scheduled to attend the famous Black-Necked Crane Festival that was taking place today but our guide Tashi told us that it’s very difficult to see the actual dances due to overcrowding. Since we were already scheduled to see the last day of Prakhar Tsechu in Bumthang (dances here are considered some of the best in Bhutan), we all agreed with Tashi that it would be best to skip the Black-Necked Crane Festival at Gangtey Monastery.
So instead, we had a wonderful picnic lunch in a beautifully scenic spot near Gangtey Monastery (prepared by the same family that we would be staying with that night – Wangchuk Dema Village Homestay).

Picnic Lunch With Breathtaking Views
We totally agree with all of the accolades of being the most beautiful valley in Bhutan – after seeing it in person, Phobjikha Valley was truly breathtaking!
