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.

Dear Richarocks, Kuzuzangpo la and thank you for taking the time to write your review of your stay at Amankora Punakha, it's greatly appreciated. The arrival experience over the suspension bridge is a unique one and I still love walking over it every time. I will personally ensure that Sonam especially, as well as the kitchen team, receive your great feedback, they will be thrilled to hear it! We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back some time soon, also to experience our lodges in Paro, Thimphu, Gangtey & Bumthang if you didn't visit them on this trip. Until then, safe travels! Tashi Delek, John Reed Country Manager

We did three Aman stops in Bhutan, and this was by far our favorite. A lovely old site with the only in-ground pool in the entire country. We spent a little time at the pool, and the water was very cloudy (cloudy enough that we would no way swim in it), but I elected to not

"We had kids in a second room - both were beautiful!"
"All rooms are quiet and have a decent garden view"
"Best view to choose a forest room"
"I prefer the second floor rooms--there are only a total of 9 rooms on the property"
"We had the one room with a small balcony for a table and two chairs. Request it if you want."
