Gangtey Goenpa Monastery

The Gangtey Goenpa Monastery dates from the 16th century, and stands on a hilltop at the top of the village. It is said that when the migratory black-neck cranes arrive in November, they fly around the monastery three times before setting down in the valley. When they leave in March, they do the same. The Black-Neck Crane Festival in November is certainly worth including if you are travelling around those dates.
