Amankora Gangtey

Gangtey, Bumthang & Beyond

Amankora Gangtey is located in the remote Phobjikha (Gangtey) Valley at the foot of the Black Mountains, Amankora Gangtey offers dramatic valley views. A must for nature lovers, this luxurious lodge sits amid one of Bhutan’s most important wildlife reserves – the winter roast of rare black-necked cranes.

Amankora Gangtey is an 8 suite lodge set in the remote wilderness of the Phobjikha Valley and is an ideal place to explore between Amankora Punakha and Amankora Bumthang. The location of the lodge offers magical views across the bird-strewn gorge and to the empowering Gangtey Goemba, a 16th century monastery. From the lodge you can enjoy some wonderful day trekking through the breathtaking wildlife sanctuary of the Phobjikha Valley.

At the end of the day, a hot stone bath in Amankora's ultra-unique and luxurious shed set up in the middle of a field, helps to ease weary muscles.

Meals are served in the communal dining room, and are a combination of traditional Bhutanese dishes and Western cuisine.

Why we recommend Amankora Gangtey

Amankora Gangtey, Bhutan

“The Amankora Gangtey is a lovely stay with breathtaking views of the Dzhong and the valley in Bhutan. Like the other four Amankora hotels in Bhutan, its style is restrained nd the materials are natural. Decorated in muted colours and fabrics, with clean-lined wooden furnishings, it’s incredibly serene and supremely stress-busting. Enjoy your cup of coffee every morning with nothing around you but the mountains and peace.”
