Combining aman, the Sanskrit-derived word for 'peace', and kora or 'circular pilgrimage' in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language, Amankora, is a series of lodges in the Kingdom of Bhutan's central and western valleys. The sole surviving Himalayan Buddhist Kingdom, Bhutan is one of the most remote and pristine environments on earth. To best experience all that Bhutan has to offer, Amankora can tailor journeys that include a combination of its lodges located in the valleys of Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang.

LOCATION It is tucked away in the hills above Thimphu. We walked to the main area, but it was about a 25 minute walk. ROOMS Spotless! Loved the open concept! Shower needs a curtain as it gets cold and leaks all over the floor. They clean your room or leave you a surprise every

From what I understand from the wonderful staff, this hotel is 12 years old. It has that wonderful spartan, zen feel that Aman resorts are known for. Our room was large and very comfortable except for regulating the temperature. The bathroom, and toilet area need upgrading. You

Dear Louise L, Kuzuzangpo la and thank you for taking the time to write your review of your stay at Amankora Thimphu.

You couldn’t pay me write something negative about Amankora Thimphu. This place was perfection - it spoils you for any other resort in Bhutan. Here’s an example: I thought it would be fun to try archery. Within fifteen minutes, the hotel arranged for a private instructor

Dear NantucketJoe, Kuzuzangpo la and thank you for taking the time to write your review of your stay at Amankora Thimphu. It's a real pleasure to hear such high praise from you & your wife. The archery is lots of fun and I'm glad you found time to try out the national sport. I will pass on the compliments to the instructor and to the chef for the work him and his team did during your stay. Hopefully we do have a chance to welcome you back to Thimphu, and hopefully our other lodges in Paro, Punakha, Gangtey & Bumthang. Until then, safe travels! All the very best from Thimphu, Tashi Delek, John Reed Country Manager, Amankora

Avoid the monsoon period, June to September, with really heavy rainfall, that can exceed 5 meters per year. The best period to visit the country is late September to late November. Clear skies, very little rain. This is also the time for several of the dance festivals, e.g. in Thimpu and the time for black-necked cranes to arrive from Tibet. The second best time to visit Bhutan is spring, March to May. More clouds and more rain than in the autumn, but this is time for the blossoming of e.g. jakaranda, magnolias and so forth.
