Gangtey sits at a height of 2900m and acts as gateway to the famous Phobjikha Valley, thus enjoying great sweeping views of the valley from its promontory position. This sleepy town, a few hours drive from Wangdi, or 5 hours from Bumthang, is dominated by the ancient Gangtey Goemba, a monastery that was founded in 1613 but has recently been restored after earthquake damage.

Local life around Gangtey is based around agriculture and tourism and there are a number of small family run guest houses as well as some more luxurious properties like the Amankora and the Gangtey Lodge from where you can get easy access to the Phobjikha Valley.
