We especially enjoyed meeting the business people in Kathmandu and the professor in Paro which we could never have done on a regular tour.

Bhutan - Gangtey

Quiet and soothing, Gangtey is a town of peaceful monasteries and flourishing wildlife. Nestled in a glacial valley at the center of the nation, Gangtey overlooks a landscape of potato fields, alpine meadows, and even rare, black-necked cranes. Local culinary specialties include yaksha momo, or Tibetan-style dumplings stuffed with yak meat and fresh potatoes, as well as a variety of spicy casseroles and stews, heavily influenced by the surrounding areas of Nepal, Tibet, and India.

Must-see sights include Gangtey Monastery, perched atop a hill that overlooks the entire valley, and the Black-Necked Crane Center, a conservation program seeking to preserve the breeding grounds and habitat of the endangered creature.
