Amankora Gangtey Lodge, Phobjikha Valley

Wander off the beaten track and stay at this intimate hotel surrounded by quaint villages, forests and fields. 

Situated in the Phobjikha Valley near the village of Gangtey, the eight-suite Amankora Gangtey Lodge is set on a forested knoll with stunning views of the valley and the 16th-century Gangtey Goemba monastery. Part of the Black Mountains National Park wildlife reserve, the valley is home each winter to a flock of 300 endangered black-neck cranes. 

 Spends your days trekking and taking in the scenery, visit remote hamlets or experience meditating with monks, then return to the lodge for a spa treatment or a Bhutanese hot stone bath.
