Perched on a small hilltop below one of Bhutan's most iconic and exquisite Monasteries, that of the 17th-century Gangtey Goempa, lies Gangtey Lodge a boutique and welcoming 12 suite luxury lodge right in the heart of the Phobjikha Valley.
The valley is the protected reserve of the Black-Necked Crane, one of the world's rarest migratory birds, flying all the way down from the plateaus of Tibet in October to nest, then departing again in March the following year.
Gangtey Lodge promotes a unique harmonious balance respecting nature while keeping cultural preservation and sustainability close to heart. Hike the trails that criss-cross the picturesque valley, greet the locals, see the amazing animal life, and connect spiritually with your surroundings. It feels like being on the top of the world.
Best of all, is getting the opportunity to reconnect with yourself, as you relax on the grand veranda of the lodge, overlooking the mountains while breathing-in some of the purest air in the world.
There is no better place to take time-out than at Gangtey Lodge.
