Mesmerizing experience to stay at phobjikha valley
May 2019
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.

A beautiful glacial valley, the winter home of the black necked cranes
Feb 2020
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.

Scenic valley, great for hiking

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.

A wonderful place
Nov 2019 • Solo
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.

Nature at its best!
Nov 2019 • Family
After the Black Crane Festival at the Gangtey Gonpa, we trekked to the Phobjika Valley. The walk took us through a village, a stream, and a Pine Tree forest before opening into a clearing from where we spotted several black cranes. The air was crisp and the walk very refreshing. Beautiful sights all around. Though it took two hours, didn’t feel one bit tired.

Stunning valley
Sep 2019
Went to Phobjikha and did the nature trail. It’s an easy 2 hour walk, but it sure is pretty. I was blown away by the view of the valley at the view point.

Widest Valley in Bhutan
Aug 2019
The Phobjikha Valley is the widest and largest valley in Bhutan. The valley is so beautiful with happiest people on the earth. In this valley, we can visit Gangtey Monastery, do a Gangtey Natural Trail Hike and enjoy the panoramic view of the valley.

If you have time, I recommend visiting the Longchen Ramjampa Temple and the walking stick. I highly recommend to one all to visit this valley of tranquility.

Valley of Black necked crames
May 2019 • Family
Phobjikha valley is located in Central Bhutan at an altitude of 3000 metres above sea level. The valley is miles and miles of flat fields full of green grass and colourful flowers. We visited Phobjikha valley in the month of May and it was dotted with beautiful purple Lilac primulas. It reminded us of the valleys of Switzerland. The valley is home to the rare species of black-necked cranes who migrate from Tibet to this part of Bhutan every year. Various trekking trails start from Phobjikha valley taking one through thick pine forests.
