Amankora has created a series of five lodges, providing a circular pilgrimage through the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan‘s breathtaking central and western valleys. The lodges are all unique and allow you to experience the best Bhutan has to offer whilst not compromising on the level of accommodation. Your personal guide will help you to discover and explore many of Bhutan’s lesser visited monasteries and villages, enriching your experience of the Kingdom.
The journey usually begins and ends at Paro and along your journey you will encounter exceptionally high levels of service, the classic Aman attention to detail and a personalised experience tailored to your preferences. Each lodge comprises of luxuriously spacious suites and dedicated spa areas for unwinding after a day trekking and exploring. The food at each lodge is a fusion of Bhutanese, Asian and Western dishes, accompanied by a remarkable wine list.
Amankora Thimphu is a ‘dzong’ inspired building with 16 suites, just a two hour drive from Paro. It is strategically raised up in a blue pine forest in the steep upper reaches of the Motithang area of the Thimphu Valley, sitting close to the capital’s intruiging sights and shopping, yet a quiet retreat placed away from the hustle and bustle of the Kingdom’s main commercial centre. From the lodge there are plenty of attractions and activities in the capital city, including the National Textile Museum, Folk Heritage Museum and the bustling Changlingmethang Market. It also home to His Majesty, King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Thimpu into a greater Bhutan holiday. Take a look at Trekking Through the Land of the Thunder Dragon as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
