A bowl-shaped glacial valley with an unusually flat landscape, Phobjikha Valley is nestled on the western slopes of the Black Mountains, with the meandering Chhu Nap (Black River) in its centre.
If you’re a wildlife lover, Phobjikha Valley should be on the top of your must-see list. The area is home to a diverse plethora of flora and fauna, including Himalayan black bears, red foxes and other exotic creatures. It’s also where the famed, sacred black-necked cranes — “birds of fortune” as they are known among the locals — set up home for the winter from November to March.
