Best time to go
The best time to visit Bhutan is from October to May as the climate is mostly dry and sunny. In December and January, snow may block some mountain passes causing restricted travel.

Choose from a stay in just one or all five properties - you can trek or be transferred by car between resorts, enjoying the mountain scenery along the way. Stay a minimum of 7 nights in Amankora properties and receive a complimentary car and driver.
