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.

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...More

Travellers in Bhutan should not necessarily expect the same quality of food on offer in 5 star hotels elsewhere. Having said that, we stayed in various hotels (not just Aman) during our stay and found the food at Amankora Thimphu a little disappointing - with...More
We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Bhutan. We spent 9 nights staying at 4 different Amankora lodges. All were wonderful. We loved the 'Amankora Family' concept - made the whole experience appear seamless. Service across all the properties was exceptional - the...More
Our first Aman experience, and I guess we were expecting more. Stayed at three Amans in Bhutan, each is unique and reviewing them separately. First – the room – nice and spacious but barely lit. The shower had no shelf for toiletries, so the options...More

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.
