What a great to stay at when visiting Bumthang. The rooms were very nice and big. The kids appreciated the living room with its Bukhari - specially on 31 December !! The food was very good and the homemade strawberry jam excellent! We will of course not forget the typical hot stone bath. When cold outside, it's the perfect place... More

The lodge is very comfortable and very well managed by the family which owns it. The hot stone bath was very traditional and refreshing. The food... More

I stayed three nights in Rinchenling. The room was beautiful cottage style with both iron stove and electric heating. They always made the fire for you in the evening and if you needed help with it any other time they had a sign you could hang outside of the door. The service was very attentive and friendly. The best part... More

We stayed for three nights in April at Rinchenling and loved the bukari and the friendliness the most. Tenzing made time for us every day, always enquiring about our activities, our home, our comfort. This family run hotel is a gem in a gorgeous country. Enjoyed the homemade plum jam from a tree in sight of our room particularly. They... More

I loved this place! Unfortunately I only stayed for one night but I wish it would have been more. The in-room bukari (wood stove) heats up the room in no time at all and there is even a backup electric heater you can turn on at night so you wake up to a warm room. The bathroom does not have...

We stayed in one of the suite room which looks like a temple! Interesting and very nice decor in the room. The room is newly renovated and the bed is comfortable. There is no tv in the room and Wi-Fi connection is rather weak. Wi-Fi at the restaurant/bar area is good. Bathroom is clean hot water shower takes a while... More
