Amankora Bumthang Bumthang, Bhutan

Look Adjacent to the Wangdichholing Palace in Bumthang, stands the 16-suite Amankora Bumthang lodge surrounded by an apple orchard. The hallway, in Buddhist architecture and colours is grand. At the end of the hall is a library with comfy chairs and an internet. It’s like entering a beautiful Dzong but I am both, confused and amazed. I am travelling not in distance but in time.

Stay The rooms are elegant, with just the right amount of style for the location. Each suite features wood-panelled interiors, a traditional bukhari, king size bed, terrazzo-clad bath, shower, twin vanities and daybed overlooking the courtyard and nearby Wangdicholing Palace and monastery.

I sit at the edge of my chair and watch through the large floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the pristine scenery of the valley outside. The lodge complements its quiet Bhutanese location through the use of natural materials, which create a calm ambience.  And I am fast asleep.

Dine Dining in Aman resorts is on demand. In most cases you have a suggested menu but the chef discusses with you what you like and the cuisine is tailored to your liking. There are no fixed timing and you can eat when you like and where you like.

Relax Ease the strains of the day's journey through the mountains with a variety of holistic treatments at Amankora Bumthang.  The spa specialises in customised oil massages which focus on specific areas of tension or provide for overall relaxation. Guests can also enjoy the complimentary steam facilities offered.

Getting There Flights to Bhutan are either from Bangkok or New Delhi. You will need to buy a return ticket before you can apply for a visa. Bangkok is the best place to connect if you are coming from North America, Australia or Asia. Delhi is the best place to connect if you are coming from Europe, Middle East or UK. You can also fly to Bhutan from Kathmandu.

We will arrange your flight tickets and visa clearance details and forward them to the Druk office at which the flight originates. All flights arrive at Paro from where it takes about 1-hour drive to Thimphu. Transfers within Bhutan can be arranged by AwimAway with an English speaking guide. Our representative will meet you at the Paro airport and transfer you to the hotel (additional cost).

When to go Winter in Bhutan is from mid-November till mid-March, and at this time of the year the climate is dry and sunny for the most part, temperatures peaking at around 15c. in the daytime and falling below zero at night. During the spring months of March, April and May, Bhutan offers warm days and cool nights. It is a great time for treks and to watch the flora and the many birds of Bhutan.

By the middle of June, clouds begin to build up for the monsoon that arrives in July. By mid-September the monsoon clouds have all but dried and the skies begin to clear. The two-month window between October and November offers clear skies but it can be cold in the night. It is also a good time for trekking deep into the Himalayas, sitting around a camp fire and seeing the high Himalayas in the morning and evening golden light.

Visa British nationals require visa and this is generally arranged by our country agent in Bhutan. Individuals who are travelling to Bhutan from an endemic area will require yellow fever certificate. We recommend that you contact your doctor to check for any inoculations required.
