This 1400 sq km protected area, earlier known as 'Black Mountain national Park', is the second largest national park in Bhutan. It is also the home of seven globally endangered bird species along with other 390 bird species. 20% of Bhutan's tiger population is inhabited in this park. The park also has the undisturbed tracks of forests in Eastern Himalaya with the highest coverage of pine, mature fir and other broadleaf forest. Black necked crane makes the Phobjikha valley its home for winter, which is based in the buffer zone of the park.
