Tashi Gasel Lodge
Samdrup Jongkhar

Tashi Gasel is perched on a hilltop, just a short distance from the town centre of Samdrup Jongkhar in the far reaches of south-eastern Bhutan. Although this 2-star hotel is simple in character and style, it offers clean accommodation, decent food and basic facilities. It’s perfectly suitable for a night if you are travelling through the area to or from north eastern India. Whilst we have not personally inspected Tashi Gasel Lodge, it is by far the best accommodation in Samdrup Jongkhar and will provide a perfectly comfortable stay.

The rooms are fairly large and have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water – very important after a day exploring the local area! In the simple restaurant you can expect Bhutanese, Indian and Chinese cuisine, and a reasonably well stocked bar serving a selection of local alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. For adventure lovers and trekking holidays, it is an ideal spot, and there are some stunning views over the surrounding valleys and wild rugged landscapes. 

Samdrup Jongkhar is a border town, just a 3-hour drive from the Indian town of Guwahati in Assam. Most people stop in Samdrup Jongkhar either en-route to or from Trashigang which is at least a six-hour drive along winding roads and high passes.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Client Testimonials

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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
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
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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
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
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
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, 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!
