Amankora Gangtey (Phobjikha)
In the picturesque Phobjikha valley near the village of Gangtey, the eight-suite Amankora Gangtey is set on a forested knoll with sweeping views of the broad valley and the 16th century Gangtey Goemba (monastery). Phobjikha valley is part of the Black Mountain National Park, one of the Bhutan's most important sanctuaries. Each winter, it is home to a flock of about 300 rare and endangered black-necked cranes those arrive from Tibet. The surrounding Black Mountains are mainly inhabited by shepherds and nomadic yak-herders.
Lodge accommodation and guest facilities are housed together. The combined Living and Dining Room is appointed with cosy chairs, sofas and family-style dining tables, all looking out through floor-to-ceiling windows towards the valley and surrounding mountains. Spa facilities consist of two massage treatment rooms and changing areas on the lodge's ground floor. A unique hot stone bath is available outside the lodge.
Stay often begins with a walk through the Gangtey village before visiting ancient altars and ramparts of Goemba. Numerous nature walks and treks are offered throughout the valley's varied terrain and, in winter the reclusive black-necked cranes can be seen from the nearby Crane Centre of a viewing hide set near their main nesting and feeding ground.
