A “kora” in Buddhist terminology, is the pilgrim circle around a monastery or holy place. Aman Resorts offers you the opportunity to circumnavigate a beautiful section of the tiny Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan, nestled high in the Himalayas. Bhutan’s isolation from the world has allowed a culture rich in cultural and religious traditions to flourish amidst a changing world. The dramatic landscapes, from snow capped peaks and deeply forested slopes to raging, boulder strewn rivers, sit largely undisturbed, protected by environmental initiatives and religious beliefs that leave the Kingdom pristine and a jewel of nature.

The Amankora program takes you into this ancient Kingdom for an adventure into the hearts and lands of charming farmers, fascinating weavers, enchanting monks and charismatic leaders.
