A Tiger’s Odyssey

A tiger’s odyssey (3-nights)

This three-night journey is the perfect introduction to the remote Buddhist Kingdom, providing an enlightening, all-round experience of its cultural and natural attractions. Staying exclusively at Amankora Paro to maximise time, discover Paro Valley with its verdant rice paddies and idyllic farmhouses by bike, explore the dramatic ruins of the 17th-century Drukyel Dzong fortress and one of the Kingdom’s oldest temples, Kyichi Lhakhang, wander through quaint Paro town sampling momos (dumplings) and freshly brewed beer, and marvel at the historic treasures of the National Museum.

Start your days with open-air yoga, breathing in the fresh pine-scented air, and savour picnics and a farmhouse lunch prepared by a former cook of the royal family. Of course, the famous Tiger’s Nest also awaits, the revered cliffside temple for which this entire experience is named.

Day 1


 

Upon arrival at Amankora Paro, you will have time to settle in before your odyssey begins. ​When you’re ready, uncover the idyll of rural life in Bhutan with a leisurely bike ride from lodge to town through tranquil villages and scenic farmland.

Amankora Journey

Day 2


 

Start your day with a rejuvenating yoga session, before embarking on your Paro Cultural Tour. This begins at the National Museum housed within the imposing Rinpung Dzong - the ‘Fortress of a heap of jewels'. You will also visit the 15th-century Jangtsa Dumtseg Lhakhang. This unique, stupa-shaped temple is renowned for its paintings showing the progressive stages of Tantric Buddhist philosophy and the most important deities of the Drukpa Kagyupa School.​  

A hearty lunch prepared by a former royal cook will be enjoyed with local Ara rice wine in a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse, before a visit to 8th-century Kyichu Lhakang, one of Bhutan’s oldest temples. ​Back at the lodge, try your hand at archery or learn the art of prayer flag printing, then join a fascinating talk on Gross National Happiness.

Day 3 & 4


 

Today you will undertake the four-to-five-hour hike from Paro Lodge to Tiger's Nest, the legendary clifftop monastery that rewards hikers with life-affirming views at its summit. The descent brings the promise of a private BBQ in a riverside meadow at the foot of the cliff, after which you will be driven back to the lodge for a well-deserved Amankora Holistic Massage in the serene Aman Spa. ​The next morning, you bid farewell to Bhutan. Your driver will take you to Paro International Airport, a journey of around 30 minutes from the lodge. We recommend arriving two hours before the flight is scheduled to depart.
