Scenic valley with lush green surroundings, pleasant whether. Beautiful surroundings. Valley was full of flower beds having unique colours. Potato fields everywhere give different experience. The view points are nicely placed so that you can experience and spend time in nature.
You can watch Yaks eating grass & playing around.
Journey to this valley is also excellent throughout greenery & forest. Snow clad Himalaya is visible.

This valley in Bhutan is the most beautiful valley of Bhutan. It is a large preserved wet-land which gives splendid and scenic view of the valley.

It is very popular in winter ( from November up to February) for the Black-necked cranes.
The black necked cranes are a rare birds that migrate from Tibet to Bhutan every year. This valley is one the attractions that nature lovers and/or birds lovers should never miss while visiting Bhutan.

People visiting during summer get to witness glorious view of the valley..

i loved this and i highly recommend people to definitely come to this place when in Bhutan !!!

I was fortunate to see the rare black necked cranes Late February this year. Watching the birds gracefully just be in the valley was a special experience.
The peace and solace in Phobjikha is incomparable!

After breakfast, walk along Gangtey Nature Trail, crossing streams, pine trees, and villages. As the black-necked crane flew over me, I felt so blessed. Stunning views of the entire Phobjikha Valley. Attend the evening chanting of 300 monks at Gangtey Monastery.

When in season, watch cranes from the deck using binoculars at the Crane Information Center

Bhutan is one of the most unique places to visit on the planet bcoz is the first country to adopt happiness as a measure of success and this does translate in every aspect. Phobjikha valley excellent destination for those who love to enjoy nature at its best - peaceful - serene-green & the happiest people around. So serene so untouched and beautiful. Once your feet touches the ground you just know you are in a very peaceful place, No hustle and bustle. Its known for black crane visit in winter from Tibet plateau. The crane festival held in November at gangtey monastery . It was full of glaciers in December to February and remain closed. It was full of rhododendrons flowers in may-june. From thimphu travelling to Dochula pass, Gangtey monasteries, black craned centre, stayed at home stay Wangchuk lodge in phobjikha valley.

We stayed in Gangtey and walked this valley one day. There are beautiful views, and we were there when the Black necked cranes were still in residence. A visit to the Crane centre is a must in season, but it also gives a good summary of life in the valley. Being at altitude, it can be quite cool in the winter.

Phobjikha valley is one of the lesser known attractions of Bhutan but a must do when one is planning a trip to the dragon country. Gazing at the scenic beauty and taking the long trekking paths are the main attractions. The serenity and beauty of this place is addictive. Do include this location in your itinerary when travelling to Bhutan.

A nice beautiful place with culture plus nature. Travellers should not make noise and should respect the local culture of Buddhism i.e wearing a polite dress in a temple (no trekking pants; no shoes; no forbidden manners) not taking a photograph when people praying.

Beautiful valley for hiking. Bonus is seeing the back neck cranes that roost here in the winter. Stayed at a farm house in Mole and highly recommend this experience. Enjoy day hikes in the region and relax with a hot stone bath.

This was a highlight for me. The hikes in and around the valley are exceptional. Having the Black Necked Cranes just a stone's through away was amazing. The scenery was beautiful and my only regret is that I didnt stay longer.

If you are unguided then please make sure you dont wander into the reserve area where the Cranes reside. My guide had to reprimand some unguided tourists who were venturing too close to the cranes.
