Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary, Trashigang

  • It can be one of the most interesting tourist attractions in Bhutan because this Sakteng Sanctuary was apparently established to shelter the infamous snow mountain men ‘Yeti’ or ‘Migoi’. Albeit the character has not yet been witnessed by the tourists, the villagers claim to have seen their footprints at night. The landscape is shadowed by broad stretch of rhododendrons trees.

    The park looks spectacular during the spring season when the landscape is adorned with colourful blooms of Blue Poppy, rhododendrons, gentia etc. Satkeng wildlife sanctuary preserves the most isolated semi nomadic tribe, Brokpas who are not very friendly with tourists.



    Highlights
    : Capture with your camera snow leopards, red fox, barking deer, Hoary Bellied Himalayan Squirrels during your traverse in the forest; bird watching is allowed and you shall get to see blood pheasants, grey headed woodpecker, dark breasted rose finch, grey backed shrike during your jaunt.

    Location
    : Trashigang.

    Best seasons
    : March to September
