Amankora Thimphu Himalayan Lodge, Bhutan

You’re close to the colour, the life and the markets of Thimphu. Yet you’re also surrounded by peaceful, blue pine forest.

Thimphu is the capital of Bhutan and tantalisingly close to Amankora Thimphu. So, within a short journey, you will find yourself revelling in the city’s bustling shops and traditional markets that burst with local produce, art and crafts. You can sample the restaurants, fountains and prayer wheels of Clock Tower Square or visit numerous museums and heritage centres.

From Amankora Thimphu you can also discover the secret villages, the untouched eco-systems, the local culture and the pure spirituality of Bhutan - one of the world’s special places.

  • Sadly, we never got to go on our trip to Canada in June, due to Covid 19. However, I'm giving a 5 star review because we received such excellent service from Gemma. She itook on board all I asked for and arranged a fantastic tinerary. She was always prompt and professional both in planning the holiday and during the very circumstances of Covid. We would not hesitate to come back to The Ultimate Travel Company.
