The Setting


Backed by an ancient protected cloud forest

and fed by crystalline springs historically reserved for Bhutanese royalty, our family-run resort provides elegant accommodations in the center of Jakar Valley with the grace, longstanding tradition, and a deeply rooted sense of hospitality that is the hallmark of our family. Discover the bountiful central highlands of Bhutan as you discover what we are all about:

Family. Tradition. Grace.


Make our family resort your perfect basecamp for the many ways to explore the lovely Bumthang region.

Start from our grounds and visit the many temples and monasteries for which Bumthang is famous or take a walk on the wild side by crossing the swaying, wind-swept suspension bridge strewn with prayer flags over the rushing rapids of the Chamkhar River (see guest video below). Enjoy an excursion to a sedate nunnery or visit the interiors of beautiful Tang Valley, our family’s spiritual home. Whether it is mountain biking, hiking, trekking, or one of Bumthang’s stunning festivals, the Bhutan Mountain Resort is the perfect place to start your adventure!
