Overlooking the wide Phobkikha Valley and bounded on all sides by the rugged black mountains, lies a haven of luxury at Gangtey Lodge. Founded with the principles of Bhutanese happiness in mind, Gangtey Lodge is the perfect place to leave your worries behind and indulge yourself by entering into a state of pure relaxation and serenity. Constructed to blend seamlessly with the 17th century monastery under which the lodge sits, the property looks more traditional than luxurious from the outside. It boasts a Bhutanese style pitched rood and ornate and hand-carved woodwork, whilst retaining the feel of a charming farmhouse. Inside, the lodge blends traditional, local décor with international convenience including log burning stoves and European baths.
For true relaxation, head to the timber and stone bathhouse complete with a traditional Bhutanese wooden tub filled with mineral-rich water and placed next to the huge glass windows that capture panoramic views of the peaceful valley below. This bathing ritual is sure to put you entirely at ease as it dates back as far as the 7th century with healing powers that are revered throughout the country. Head out for a chance to spot the world’s rarest migratory birds – the Black-Necked Crane as it stops through the valley on its journey from Tibet. After a day of exploring the valley, its nature, its local customs, and its festivals return to your oasis of calm and unwind in any one of the beautifully designed suites complete with warm fabrics and natural linens. No matter what you are seeking at the Gangtey Lodge, you are sure to reconnect with nature and come away understanding why Bhutan embraces a concept of National Happiness.

Why We Love It
Arise early in the morning and head into the fresh valley morning up to the 17th Gangteng Monastery. Here listen to the monks (sometimes as many as 200) chant the morning prayers in a ritual that is sure to leave you feeling revitalised and invigorated for the day of exploring ahead.
