Amankora - Bhutan - Exclusive 5 Star Luxury Hotel

Amankora setting


An exclusive collection of luxury lodges nestled into the hills and valleys of the Bhuddist Kingdom of Bhutan.

The Kingdom of Bhutan has maintained its traditional Mahayana Buddhist way of life for centuries and the rugged, unspoiled, mountainous terrain has nurtured numerous ethnic groups within its remote, protective folds. These distinct cultural and linguistic traditions continue to this day, uninfluenced by the outside world.

Adhering to ancient cultural, religious and social traditions, Bhutan annually offers a limited number of travellers wonderful insights into life in the Himalayas. Descending from 7,500 metre high Alps in the north to the low–lying plains of the south, Bhutan's rivers have forged deep valleys separated by high mountain passes.

Located at over 8,000 feet above sea level, Amankora is a series of elegant guest lodges located throughout Bhutan's principal western and central valleys of Paro, Thimphu, Punakha and Gangtey. Each valley and lodge has its own character, setting and experience. Together they provide an ideal circuit for discovery of cultural traditions unchanged over centuries.

Guests may visit one of the lodges or, to best experience all that Bhutan has to offer, Amanresorts can plan a tailor-made journey, including one or more of the Amankora lodges located in Paro, Punakha, Gangtey and Thimphu.

Bhutan's way of life has remained unchanged for centuries. Cliff-edge dzongs with fluttering prayer flags are the site of daily rituals in much the same manner as they were centuries ago. The deeply revered King Jigme Singye Wangchuk, who ascended the throne in 1972, is the driving force behind the strict preservation of the Kingdom's rich heritage and its steady growth to prosperity.

With a rich geography spanning sub-tropical plains, densely wooded Alpine valleys and sheer windswept slopes above the snowline, Bhutan offers an immense diversity of flora and fauna. There are an estimated 770 varieties of birds and more than 50 species of rhododendron alone. The country is home to the elusive snow leopard, golden langur, blue sheep, tiger, water buffalo, yak and elephant.
