Gangtey in the press

Nestled near a cluster of farmhouses on one of Bhutan's endless rolling hillsides, Gangtey Lodge offers an ideal springboard to Himalayan adventures—and, though you can reasonably look forward to its small luxuries at day's end, its remote location offers the ultimate antidote to your over-stimulated life.

Arriving to this glorious hotel with very few rooms, the entire team waits to greet you with warmth and a song. The rooms are exquisite. The service is of another level. All of cour clothes that were dirty from trekking were washed and left upon our bed with care.

Discover the untouched beauty of Bhutan.

Discover the rich cultural heritage of Bhutan by exploring one of its most fascinating art forms - Parzo. This intricate wood carving technique dates back to the 14th century and is used to create printing blocks for religious texts, furniture, altars, and slate images. The skilled artisans of Bhutan use blue pine or walnut wood to create these masterpieces, which are then painted in vibrant colors, adding to their beauty and charm. Parzo is not just limited to furniture and religious artifacts, but is also used to create traditional motifs on buildings and monuments, including the iconic Dzongs. So, if you're planning a trip to Gangtey Valley, don't forget to check out this amazing art form and immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of Bhutan.

Did you know that Bhutan's Constitution mandates that 60% of the country must remain under forest cover at all times? And at present, over 70% of Bhutan is under forest cover. Every year our Gangtey Lodge family plant over 100 trees in the valley to support the regeneration of our local forests and help maintain Bhutan's commitment to a sustainable future.
