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.
The eight room Amankora Gangtey is positioned on a forested knoll close to the valley floor. A winding track leads through the forest and descends to the lodge, which enjoys sweeping views of the valley landscape. Accommodation is set in in one rammed-earth building along with the combined living and dining room. The eight suites offer an open plan bedroom and bathing area. Each contains traditional bukhari, terrazzo-clad bath, shower, vanity, and daybed offering views across the valley.
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.
