Testimonials

  • “My partner and I spent six nights at the Yu-gharling, which was our home base for exploring Bumthang and all of its valleys. The hotel’s rooms are lovely, with comfortable beds, and they are kept clean and neat by the housekeeping staff. We were brought radiators to provide more than enough heat to be comfortable, and there was always adequate hot water for our showers. The food tended to be spotty, with some dinners very good and some just bland and average, just as most of the hotel food available throughout Bhutan. Breakfasts always had an omelet station, providing eggs cooked to order. I would certainly recommend the Yu-gharling as a very good place to stay in Bumthang!”

  • “Bumthang, we were told by our excellent driver Santosh Chetri, means a ‘lovely lady standing in the glade’. After a rather difficult crossing through the Pelela and Yatongla passes on a snowbound day, the unending journey from Punakha to Bumthang the final few miles to Jakar, through winding forest roads to the refuge of Yu Gharling, proved memorable. The reception was equally heartwarming. The hotel is equipped to cater to trekkers and those seeking a leisurely holiday. Even the absence of television is hardly felt in the picture-postcard surroundings and the well-equipped interiors. Our stay there was truly a treat to savour”

    “Arriving here after two weeks of hard travel in the west of Bhutan was heaven! The rooms are spacious and extremly comfortable with balconys overlooking paddy fields and the town. The road in isn”t so good but a minor problem when greeted by charming staff who lugged our cases to our rooms with smiles.
    The restraunt is massive and the food which seemed endless was delicious. A lovely walk through the Paddy’s to get to and from town which is a treat,(or you can catch a taxi) make sure you have a Masala tea (Chai) and there are some great little shops selling local weaving and Bhuddist artifacts.
    The Manager Rudra Giri is charming and there is nothing he won”t do to help.”
