Black-necked crane is first class national protected animal and the only crane in the world that grows and breeds on the plateau. Lhunzhub County of Lhasa City is a famous natural reserve for black-necked cranes. Every year starting in mid-October, a large number of black-necked cranes will migrate here to overwinter.
