Valley Wildlife Area
Nature comes alive in Phobjikha Valley, a vast bowl-shaped glacial valley on the edge of the Black Mountain National Park. This conservation area is well-known for black-necked cranes, who roost in dwarf bamboo groves in this 3,000 m (9,842 ft) valley. You can observe them from an indoor deck with telescopes. Yak, muntjacs, sambar deer, Himalayan serow, and foxes are among the wildlife sheltered by blue pine, birch, and maple forests. Take a nature trail and visit the 17th century monastery perched on a hillock ridge above the valley.

  • Can't say outright what beauty is. An hour and a half while I felt during the track's Valley beauty really is in pove was more than expected. By the way, between the village of FIR Pinus koraiensis forest or grasslands and wetlands through the tracking is really was the best. The grand spectacle of the beauty of the Valley, but not sure what quite glaciers made speaking difficult. It is highly recommended that you visit.
