Aman Kora - Bumthang

Amankora Bumthang rests adjacent to First and Second King’s palace, Wangdichholing, within the town of Jakar in the Choekhor valley, a valley sprinkled with an exotic mix of sloping pine forests, apple orchards, and restful fields of farm produce.

 

An apple orchard surrounds the 16-suite lodge with pear trees along its boundary with the Palace. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of landscaped courtyard adjoining the shared Palace grounds. Adjacent is the dining room with its soaring 18ft ceiling. Each suite features wood-paneled interiors, a traditional bukhari (wood-buring stove), king-size bed, terrazzo chad bath, shower, twin vanities and daybed.
