Black Crane Festival Bhutan

On Tuesday the 3rd November  8 very priveledged people will travel with Lyn Taylor's Adventure Travel to witness the Balck Crane Festival in Bhutan. The Black necked crane is one of the endangered species of crane. About 500 - 600 cranes migrate to Bhutan in winter from the Tibetan plateau. After realizing the crane's plight the Royal Society for The Protection of Nature set up a crane centre in Phobjikha. This crane festival is celebrated to raise awareness among the locals and to celebrate the arrival of a magnificent bird which has beautified the valley for centuries. The festival is celebrated with crane dance and local folk dances.
