Cultural Sojourn

Amankora, Bhutan - Cultural Experience Amankora, Bhutan - Resort Exterior Drukgyel Dzong View, Paro Lodge, Amankora, Bhutan

Immerse yourself in the rich traditions of Bhutan, across two spectacular valleys

Until 31 March 2023

Discover Bhutan’s colourful history and wealth of traditions while exploring the capital Thimphu: its post office, textile museum, weaving centre, paper factory and astrology school. Visit Tashichho Dzong at dusk, and hike to the Cheri Goemba, a picturesque temple and monastery where the Kingdom’s first monastic body was established. Try your hand at the national sport of archery, savour lunch in a local farmhouse and watch the Himalayan landscape unfolding on spectacular drives as your private guide offers insight into the history, culture and daily life of each region. 

Your time in Paro will be spent exploring the town and countryside, and of course, climbing to the lofty Tiger’s Nest. Perched cliffside with astounding views, the famed temple complex was first built in 1692 around the cave where a revered Guru was said to have meditated in the 8th century. Follow the hike and personalised tour with a barbecue lunch and a well-deserved hot stone bath.
