The Bumdeling Wildlife Sanctuary (also spelled Bumdelling and Bomdeling), which also contains the former Kulong Chu Wildlife Sanctuary, covers 1,520.61 square kilometres (587.11 sq mi) in north-eastern Bhutan at elevations between 1,500 metres (4,900 ft) and 6,000 metres (20,000 ft). The Sanctuary covers most of Trashiyangtse District, including Bumdeling Gewog. The Sanctuary was planned in 1995 and established in 1998. It contains diverse flora, fauna, and scenery including alpine lakes and Bumdeling Valley, one of Bhutan's two wintering spots for the endangered black-necked crane (Grus nigricollis). The Sanctuary also contains several cultural and religious sites. Within the park live 3,000 resident households. As of 2007, there was recent record of the white-tailed eagle, a first for the sanctuary.
