In the little-visited Phobjikha Valley near the village of Gangtey, the eight-suite Amankora Gangtey Lodge is set on a forested knoll with scenic views of the valley floor and the 16th-century Gangtey Goemba monastery. Part of the Black Mountains National Park wildlife reserve, the valley is home each winter to a flock of 300 endangered black-neck cranes.
Suite interiors are identical to those of Amankora Thimphu, each enjoying a view across the valley. Amenities include king-size beds, traditional wood-burning stoves, and banquette window seats, while bathrooms feature terrazzo-clad bathtubs, twin vanities, a separate shower, and a toilet. Guests can enjoy the comfortable and cozy atmosphere of the hotel while taking in the beautiful views of the valley.
The Amankora Gangtey Lodge offers a wide range of activities for guests to enjoy. Visitors can donate a meal to the monks, join them for evening or morning prayers, or experience a spiritual cleansing ritual.
Experience a candlelit hot stone bath; a sliding bamboo door reveals a panorama of the valley. The hot stone bath is a great way to relax and unwind while enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
For a truly authentic experience, guests can enjoy a Bhutanese meal in a candlelit potato hut, warmed by a Bukhari stove, and accompanied by folk music and song. This is a great way to experience the local way of life and taste some delicious Bhutanese food.
