Discreetly sited beside a cluster of farmhouses, Gangtey Lodge sits overlooking the scenic Phobkikha Valley. Sitting beneath a 17th-century monastery, the lodge has been constructed to blend in sympathetically with the sanctuary.

Its authentic exterior is characterized by a Bhutanese-style pitched roof decorated with ornate engravings. Within the stunning suites, you’ll find traditional, natural materials combined with warm fabrics and natural linens. International-standard conveniences—such as European baths and log-burning stoves—fill out the peaceful, uncluttered interiors.


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.  


Gangtey Lodge is dedicated to creating opportunities for the local community through training and employment. On top of this, they respect the environment through sustainable design and green operation practices.

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 revitalized and invigorated for the day of exploring ahead.
