Guests may either visit one of Amankora's lodges or, to best experience all that Bhutan has to offer, Amanresorts can plan a tailor-made journey, including one or more of its lodges located in Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey, or Bumthang.
Deriving its name from two words, aman meaning peace in Sanskrit and kora meaning circular pilgrimage in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language, Amankora is a series of lodges sited throughout Bhutan's principal western and central valleys. Each valley and each lodge has its own character, setting and experience.
For guests staying seven nights or more, a tailor-made itinerary based on preferred length of stay will include complimentary long road permits, private transport with driver and guide and one 60-minute massage that can be enjoyed at any one of the five lodges for the duration of stay at Amankora. A minimum of 11 nights is recommended to visit all five valleys.
A number of sample itineraries have been created to assist in planning your journey.
