Lingkhar Lodge

Nestled in the quiet, rural countryside of the small but bustling town of Trashigang in eastern Bhutan, Lingkhar Lodge is a simple and comfortable lodge just an hour's drive from Yonphula domestic airport.

Lingkhar Lodge is by far the best option in the area, a remote region where decent accommodation is often in short supply. The twelve deluxe guest rooms are housed in traditional cottages, scattered within the picturesque gardens. The en-suite rooms are spacious, comfortable and well furnished, and have been attractively designed in a traditional Bhutanese style. Each room has its own balcony with views overlooking orange orchards and terraced rice fields; the hotel site is blissfully quiet.

The hotel restaurant is simple and serves Bhutanese, Indian and Chinese cuisine, whilst the bar offers an interesting selection of international and local beverages, including Ara, the local spirit distilled from rice. The service is warm and welcoming, and the hosts, Mingur and Deki, will make you feel immediately at home.

Trashigang, meaning ‘Auspicious Mountain’, is a picturesque town cushioned at the foot of a steep wooded valley, with the tiny Dangme Chu River carving through it. Not many travellers make it to this part of Bhutan, it’s very far off the usual tourist circuit, but it’s well worth the journey for those who make it here. Lingkhar Lodge is a good base from which to explore the local highlights which include Trashi Yangtse Dzong, and the small towns of Khaling, Radi and Phongme.

I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
