Recently declared one of the worlds Top Resorts in Asia by Travel + Leisure magazine, Amankora is a journey waiting to be experienced.

Amankora, combining the word “aman” (or “peace” in Sanskrit) with “pilgrimage” and “journey” in Dzongkha, marks a unique entry into a secluded kingdom – the pristine Himalayan landscape and preserved culture have fascinated travelers from around the world.

Spiritual visitors are offered a humbling and enriching experience with the first monastery established in Bhutan nearby as well as the 7th century temple of Kyichu Lhakhang.
