Bhutan / Amankora Journey

The Pioneer

A curated edit of luxury holidays that transcend just the destination

There are few places more spiritual than the Himalayas and few kingdoms more beguiling than the monastery-strewn mountains of Bhutan.

Scattered amongst cliffs and valleys, five Aman lodges combine exploration of a tiny country that has changed little over the centuries with the highest levels of luxury – each offering unrivalled personal service, regional delicacies and world-class spas. A private driver and guide accompany your journey, first to the pine forests of Paro – here, be sure to visit the Paro Dzong, a jewel of Bhutanese architecture. Enjoy many scenic drives travelling between Bumthang, Gangtey and Punakha, before finally ascending the Dochu La Mountain Pass to Thimpu – the charming capital teeming with museums, markets and art.
