In the western and central valleys of Bhutan lies Amankora, which derives its name from “aman”, meaning “peace” in Sanskrit, and “kora” or “circular pilgrimage” in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language. Amankora is a series of lodges scattered in different areas of Bhutan. The lodge in Paro is nestled among conifers in a pine forest retreat; Thimphu is located in a blue-pine forest of the Motithang area. Amankora Punakha is set in lush vegetation east of the Dochu La Pass. Amankora Gangtey, in the remote wilderness of the Phobjikha valley, proffers magical views across the Gangtey Goemba, a 16th century monastery. Amankora Bumthang rests adjacent to the first and second King’s palace, Wangdichholing, within the town of Jakar in the Choekhor valley, sprinkled with an eclectic mix of sloping pine forests, apple orchards and peaceful farms. Rooms feature all creature comforts and a typical local design.

Retreat Projects

Pilgrimages

Spiritual pilgrimages in Bhutan offer guests both a humbling and enriching experience. You’ll receive a blessing and Yak-butter lamps in the secluded Wangditse Lhakhang, taking your time in the tranquility of the ancient altar rooms. Visit Cheri Goemba, the first monastery established in Bhutan, and absorb the vibrant spiritual energy through reflection or meditation.

Environment

To this astonishing effect, Amankora has created a series of lodges, all creatively unique and sympathetically balanced to their environment, in order to discover and comprehend the extraordinary wonders of this treasured land. The lodges are created to provide a circular pilgrimage in Bhutan’s breathtakingly spectacular valleys.

Natural Spa

Amankora Spa uses traditional plant and herb-based therapies deepening guests’ direct experience and appreciation of Bhutan’s unique natural and cultural resources through smell, touch, hearing, sight and taste. The scent of the Spa is cedarwood, used as temple incense by the Tibetans, employed in Bhutan’s traditional medical remedies for respiratory, skin and arthritic conditions.
