Black-necked crane is an endangered bird species that migrates from the plateaus of Tibet, over the himalayas, to the pictursque valleys of Phobjikha and Bumdeling in Bhutan during winter. Considered a ‘Lhabja’ – heavenly birds – the cranes hold a special place in local folklores and songs. This finds ample expression during the annual Black-necked crane festival held at the courtyard of Gangtey Goenpa in Phobjikha Valley.
