Colorful Gangtey, located in the central region, isn't often visited by foreigners because it's somewhat remote and difficult to get to. For those who venture there, at least a one-night stay is suggested, although the opening of the luxury property Gangtey Lodge is leading more travelers to spend two to three nights in the area to enjoy the resort's views. The best time to visit Gangtey is November-March, when the black-neck cranes are in residence and roads are not blocked by monsoon-created landslides, but you may come across snow. There is a visitors center where people can learn about the cranes and even meet one bird that was injured at a young age and now lives at the center. You can also visit Gangtey Gompa, a monastery from the 1600s, which is close to Gangtey Lodge. The lodge also organizes farmhouse visits and meditation sessions at the monk university just up the hill.
