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.

From our guest book "A beautiful, peaceful haven that creates memories to treasure. From our arrival to departure, we were welcomed by Ania and her team. 2 nights was not enough to enjoy the valley and all that Gangtey Lodge has to offer. Exemplary service and a unique location. Do not miss the opportunity to visit the neighbouring monastary." - Claire Byrne

Dessert of the day - our delicious Paneer Cheesecake with  Pomegranate Coulis served with fresh mint from our herb garden. 

Our pomegranates are sourced from the southern regions of Bhutan where they grow in abundance during the summer months. If you are making your way to a local market during this time, keep your eyes peeled!

Did you know that Bhutan is home to approximately 130 wild tigers? Renowned for being the highest altitude tigers in the world, at over 4000 metres, sightings are rare and fleeting. Our team was thrilled to discover prominent tiger footprints while foraging for mushrooms in the Gangtey Valley recently - a beautiful reminder of their presence.

Tigers are often revered in Bhutan, not only for their ecological significance but also for their place in Bhutanese spiritual ethos. Tigers are the only living members of the four protective animals of Buddhism; Sing (mythical snow lion), Chung (mythical Garuda), Druk (mythical dragon) and Tag (tiger).

Did you know... Bhutan is the only country in the world without a single set of traffic lights in its capital city, Thimphu? Instead, traffic at the main street's major intersection is directed by hand by a local policeman from a picturesque tower.

From our Guest Book - "Simply stunning! Gangtey is an outstanding lodge in the most beautiful valley where the kindness and service from Ania and her amazing team is world class. I had a touch of altitude sickness and the chef, staff and Ania went out of their way to offer advice, medication and a light dinner. The rooms are large and beautiful overlooking views of the valley, with a large bath in the window to soak it all in. It is a beautiful place to relax. I can't recommend this property highly enough! Don't go to Bhutan and miss it." - London, UK.
