Amankora Gangtey Lodge

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 toilet.

• Spa facilities include two massage rooms and changing areas
• The Dining Room features large family-style dining tables and floor-to ceiling windows
• A library features books on Buddhism, local folklore, textiles and the Himalayas
• 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
• Enjoy a Bhutanese meal in a candlelit potato hut, warmed by a bukhari stove and accompanied by folk music and song
