Drive through the Bhutanese countryside passing small villages and panoramic views of the Himalayas en route to Gangtey for a night in a family's farmhouse. Visit the Black-Necked Crane Centre and learn about these birds and their environment. The road climbs steeply through forests, with hanging lichen up near the Dochula Pass (3,050m/10,007 ft). The pass offers panoramic views of the Himalayan Mountains. Stop for tea and check out the view before continuing on to Gangtey Gompa. Opt to wander around the small town to see young monks from the nearby school meandering in the street.
