A short journey south off the main highway, the glacial Phobjika valley is worth a detour.
The 17th century monastery, Gangtey Gompa, is dramatically situated at the head of the valley and is inhabited by the monks during the summer months.
For ornithologists there is the opportunity to watch rare black-necked cranes which migrate from the high plains of the Tibetan plateau in winter to the milder climate of Phobjika.
