Dream Destination: Gangtey Lodge
DREAM DESTINATION: Gangtey Lodge, BHUTAN
Life slows down at this splendidly isolated lodge, built in 2003 and comprising 12 luxurious suites, each with sweeping views down the valley to Gangtey Monastery. Unwind by simply soaking up these majestic vistas, or join the monks in their early morning prayers and rounds. Alternatively, add to Bhutan’s index of gross national happiness (it’s the only country in the world to have one) by indulging in a hot-stone bath in the lodge’s new spa. Active types will not feel left out, with the surrounding area offering plenty of opportunities for hiking and mountain-biking.
