Dawa in Bhutan was a very decent, honourable, kind and funny man - excellent. Rekha in Delhi was the most gentle, knowledgable and couteous lady - excellent.

Amankora incorporates a series of lodges, all unique and sympathetically balanced with their environment. Together, the lodges create a circular pilgrimage through Bhutan's breathtakingly spectacular central and western valleys.
Bumthang Lodge is accessed through an impressive stone-clad hallway, with 16 guest suites situated in four separate dwellings, each containing two suites on the ground floor and two on the upper floor. Each suite features wood-panelled interiors, a traditional bukhari, king-size bed, terrazzo-clad bath, shower, twin vanities and daybed overlooking the courtyard and nearby Wangdicholing Palace and monastery. After a day of exploring the local culture, enjoy a private barbeque by the firepit with a personalised menu. Make sure to relax with a Zen massage, the lodge's signature treatment, during your stay.
Best time to be there
Bhutan offers warm days and cool nights all year round. October and November are arguably the best months, when the monsoon has passed and the skies are clear for mountain photography. The spring months of March, April and May are best for the flora, but it can be stormy as the monsoon builds up for July-September.
