Amankora, Butão

Amankora offers guided treks and excursions by car or on foot throughout the pristine valleys of Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Phobjikha and Bumthang. This circular journey of discovery, your kora, is an odyssey into the world’s last Buddhist kingdom.

Combining aman, the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’, with kora or ‘circular pilgrimage’ in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language, Amankora is a series of lodges in Bhutan’s central and western valleys. Enabling a journey of discovery beneath the soaring Himalayan peaks, Amankora’s lodges offer travellers the opportunity to experience in comfort Bhutan’s remarkable landscape and rich cultural heritage.

At an elevation of 2,250 metres, Paro Valley is the entry point for most journeys through the Kingdom. The airport is located approximately 30 minutes from Amankora Paro. Outdoor terrace.

Surrounded by pine forest, the 24-suite retreat contrasts rustic elements with contemporary design. Its architecture features natural rammed-earth walls, gently sloping roofs and wood-panelled interiors. The floor-to-ceiling windows of the Living Room reveal a dramatic vista of the 17th-century ruins of Drukgyel Dzong, a monastic fortress, and the snow-capped peak of Jhomolhari.
