Amankora in Bhutan?

Jump to last reply

Does anyone have experience with the Amankora lodges in Bhutan? They have a series of lodges in different areas of Bhutan and they offer tours including the various lodges. I am trying to figure out whether those are the areas that I am most likely to want to see and whether the premium that Aman charges is worth it. I would like to do some trekking, but I am mostly interested in photography of scenery and people.

For ease of reference, here is the description from their website of the five lodges:

Most journeys start at Amankora Paro or Amankora Thimphu. The lodge in Paro is nestled among glistening conifers in a 24-suite pine forest retreat. Amankora Thimphu, raised up in a blue-pine forest of the Motithang area, sits close to the capital’s intriguing sights and traditional shops.

Amankora Punakha is set in sparkling verdancy east of the Dochu La Pass and just north of the resplendent Punakha Dzong.

Amankora Gangtey, set in the remote wilderness of the Phobjikha valley, proffers magical views across the bird-strewn gorge and to the empowering Gangtey Goemba, a 16th century monastery.

Amankora Bumthang rests adjacent to First and Second King’s palace, Wangdichholing, within the town of Jakar in the Choekhor valley, a valley sprinkled with an exotic mix of sloping pine forests, apple orchards, and restful fields of farm produce.
