Gangtey Valley is one of the most spectacular valleys of the Himalayas. Many even refer to the valley as the Shangri-La of Bhutan.
Highlights: The very element of surprise that comes from exploring such a wide and flat valley without any trees post a tiring climb through the forests is amplified by an impression of the vast space that is actually a very rare experience in Bhutan since most of the Bhutan’s valleys are tightly enclosed. It is a moderate trek which leads you to the villages of Khotokha and Gogona while passing you through the fields and meadows followed by rhododendrons, juniper and magnolia that are in full bloom especially in the month of April. Besides the beautiful scenic valley as well as the mountain trails which pass through the scenic forest you can also make a visit to the blacked necked crane information centre and the Gangtey monastery.
Location: The Gangtey Valley is located in Bhutan.
Timings: Open round the year.
Pricing: Entry is free.
