The ancient Kingdom of Bhutan to this day remains one of the world’s most mysterious and undiscovered destinations.
Gangtey Lodge, with its spectacular setting and sweeping views over the valley, acts as a luxurious base and jumping off point for a series of half and full day adventures and excursions.
During October one of the world’s rarest migratory birds – the Black-necked Crane – arrives from Tibet, before flying out again in March. Gangtey (Phobjikha) Valley is one of the best places in the world to view these amazing birds, with over 10% of the world’s population spending the winter months here.
They say that ‘Happiness is a place, and it is called Bhutan’.
At Gangtey Lodge we embrace Bhutan’s concept of Gross National Happiness by pursuing a harmonious balance between respecting nature and promoting cultural preservation and sustainable development.
Our personal philosophy is to create luxury escapes and amazing experiences that enable travellers to connect physically, spiritually, and emotionally with their surroundings. Our belief is that travel should not only be meaningful but should also impact positively on the people and places that we visit.
We are dedicated to empowering and creating opportunities for the local community through training and employment and respecting the environment through our low impact design and green operational practices.
We invite you to reconnect with nature and hike the numerous trails through the valley, find spiritual enrichment through our experiences with the 17th Century Gangtey Monastery, and explore the rich culture of the local community, unchanged for centuries.
Most importantly, our Gangtey Lodge Family look forward to creating lifelong memories by reconnecting you with yourself and your loved ones.
