Down-To-Earth Bhutan

As mentioned in my previous post, Gangtey has two luxury hotels–one is Gangtey Goenpa Lodge where we stayed and the other is the Amankora Gangtey. Although I prefer Gangtey Goenpa Lodge’s authentic feel, there’s no denying the latter’s appeal. It’s modern minimalist aesthetic (as seen in the first nine photos below) can make anyone feel […]
