Swiss Guest House

Hotel in Jakar

It doesn't get more bucolic than this wooden farmhouse surrounded by apple and pear orchards on a hill overlooking the valley. In 1983 this was the first guesthouse in Bumthang, but there have been plenty of upgrades since then. Rooms in the new wing are spacious and warm, with good beds and clean bathrooms.

The cheerful bar is also one of the few places in Bhutan where you can get Red Panda beer on draught, guaranteed fresh, since it's brewed just down the road!
