Discover Amankora’s Bumthang Lodge ( The 16-Suite Amankora Bumthang resort rests adjacent to the Wandichholing Palace, within the town of Jakar in the Choekhor Valley. From here, guests can embark on a multitude of cultural and spiritual experiences, including the unforgettable experience of the 108-butter lamp offering at Taktsang Monastery.
Bumthang, directly translating as ‘beautiful field’, is home to 29 temples and monasteries including the ancient Jambay Lhakhang, and is a treasure-trove of Bhutan’s art and painting traditions.
Amenities include king-size beds, traditional wood-burning stoves and banquette window-seats, while bathrooms feature terrazzo-clad bathtubs, twin vanities, a separate shower and toilet.
Devoid of crowds and the trappings of tourism, Bhutan is unlike anywhere on Earth – and Amankora offers unprecedented access to its breath-taking beauty. With five lodges spread across the country, it leads guests to a deeper insight into urban, rural and spiritual Bhutan, while immersive wellness and dining experiences create a tangible connection to the pine-sprinkled Himalayan setting. Bhutan is still only slowly opening up to tourism, yet Amankora has been on the ground here for 15 years cultivating a caring, passionate team whose experience is unrivalled in the Buddhist Kingdom.
