Amankora Thimphu


Situated in a blue pine forest in the upper reaches of the Motithang area of the Thimphu Valley, the 16-suite Amankora Thimphu is close to the capital’s sites and shopping, while remaining a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the Kingdom’s main commercial center. The resort’s dzong-inspired architecture incorporates whitewashed stone buildings accessed through an enclosed arrival courtyard. Stairs lead from this entryway to a combined Living and Dining Room with soaring ceilings and wood-paneled walls. An outdoor dining deck provides views of the nearby stream and surrounding forest. The Spa features three treatment rooms (two single and one double), a steam room and changing areas.

Things To Do

Amankora Thimphu offers guests a unique opportunity to shop and sightsee in Bhutan’s capital and to take treks into the region's wilderness.

A two-hour drive from Paro, Thimphu lies in a steep valley at an altitude of 2,350m (7,709ft), surrounded by richly forested mountains dotted with ancient monasteries and lhakhangs (temples). The town is built up from the Thimphu Chhu (river) and is centered by the quaint Clock Tower and its surrounding lanes of shops, vegetable and meat markets, and assorted local restaurants. As Bhutan’s capital city, Thimphu is home to many attractions and activities, including the National Textile Museum, Folk Heritage Museum and the bustling Changlingmethang Market. It also houses the seat of government and the office of His Majesty, King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, in the majestic Tashichoe Dzong.

Nearby, one can visit Pangri Zampa, two 16th century buildings that now house a monastic astrologer training school. At the head of the valley, a walk across one of the country’s oldest cantilever bridges leads to Cheri Goemba where the Kingdom’s first monk community was based. Thimphu’s main street provides an opportunity to shop for Himalayan jewelry and Bhutanese handicrafts and textiles.
