Located in the rarely visited Bumthang Valley, the newest of the Amankora properties in Bhutan is ideally located just outside of this vibrant town and is a perfect base for visiting the many ancient Dzongs and for the excellent trekking this area is famous for. At the moment there are some infrequent flights from Paro making it a lot easier to include in a trip to Bhutan.
Adjacent to the first and second King of Bhutan’s Royal palace, Wangdichholing, Amankora Bumthang lies within the town of Jakar in the Choekhor Valley in an area commonly known as Bumthang. The lodge is surrounded by an apple orchard and features pear trees along its boundary with the Palace. A dzong-inspired hallway at the lodge’s entrance opens onto the library and a comfortable living room appointed with lounge chairs, daybeds and a traditional bukhari. The floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of a landscaped courtyard adjoining the shared Palace grounds. Adjacent is the regally-appointed dining room with its soaring ceiling. Outdoor dining areas under the shade of local fruit trees are also provided in the courtyard. The Spa, located just above the entranceway, offers three intimate treatment rooms and a steam room perfect after a hard days trekking in the surrounding mountains.
