Adjacent to the first and second King of Bhutan’s palace, Wangdichholing, Amankora Bumthang lies within the town of Jakar in the Choekhor Valley in an area commonly known as Bumthang.
Access to Amankora Bumthang passes alongside the former royal sports ground of Bhutan’s first two kings, a traditional and much-used archery area, and circles a stately peach tree. The lodge is surrounded by an apple orchard and features pear trees along its boundary with the Palace. A dzong-inspired hallway, at the lodge’s entrance, opens into a library and a comfortable living room appointed with lounge chairs, daybeds and a traditional bukhari. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of a landscaped courtyard adjoining the shared Palace grounds. Adjacent is the regally-appointed Dining Room with its soaring ceiling. Outdoor dining areas under the shade of local fruit trees are also provided in the courtyard. The Spa, located just above the entranceway, offers three intimate treatment rooms, a steam room and changing areas.
