Amankora Bumthang Himalayan Lodge, Bhutan

More central to the palaces, monasteries, temples and wonderful landscapes of the verdant Choekhor Valley.

Unlike its contemporaries, Amankora Bumthang settles in the heart of the valley amongst the ancient buildings and streets of the fascinating town of Jakar. Step outside the resort’s courtyard and you will be immediately enswirled in a world of palaces, temples, monasteries and local dwellings.

Wandichholing Palace - the birthplace of many royal members of Bhutan’s monarchy – is next door to Amankora Bumthang. No fewer than 29 temples and monasteries are within walking distance. Museums and historical sites are at hand, and organic farms and local craft producers lie just outside the city.
