Amankora Gangtey

Paro-Samdrupjongkhar
Thimphu
Gangtey, Bhutan
TEL: 975 8 272-333
TEL: (800) 477-9180

The Altitude: 9,843 feet.

 

The Perch: High up in the Himalayas’ last surviving Buddhist kingdom, the eight-suite Amankora Gangtey has broad views over Gangtey Goemba, a 16th-century monastery, and the remote farmland of the Phobjikha Valley.

 

The Journey: Amankora, which means “circular journey” in Dzongkha (the local language), has five lodges scattered among the mountains around the town of Paro. Many guests at the Gangtey property—the highest of the five—visit as part of a circular journey that takes in all the lodges, but if you want to come directly from Paro, it’s best to make the six-hour drive via chauffeured car.

 

The Best View: All rooms overlook the forested hills and sweeping meadows of Black Mountains National Park, Bhutan’s largest nature preserve. If you come in winter, you may get to watch the hundreds of endangered black-necked cranes that swoop into the park each year from Tibet.
