According to legend, the endangered black-neck crane and the people of Gyalthang have a sacred pact. If the cranes come after harvest and leave before sowing, they will be unharmed. To this day, folks say, the strand of black human hair on the crane marks that oath, and the birds winter peacefully in Gyalthang.
Khampa Caravan adopted the Black-neck crane (grus nigricollis) as its emblem, aspiring to live up to that sentiment in the backdrop of increasing tourist activity in the area.
