Bhutan Black Necked Crane Festival Tour is an invigorating trip that takes us to the major towns of Bhutan such as Thimphu, Punakha and Paro. Moreover, we take part in the celebration of the Black Necked Crane festival in Gangtey. Celebrating the festival together with the locals will let us experience Bhutan’s rich culture firsthand.

The highlight of our 8-day tour is the black-necked crane festival in Gangtey. The celebration takes place in the courtyard of the Gangtey Monastery. The fiesta is actually organized to generate awareness about the endangered black-necked cranes.

We then drive to Paro and hike up to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, which is perhaps the most venerated monastery in Bhutan.
