Gakiling Guest House

Location : Phobjikha Rating :

For something more intimate, try this new wooden guest house just behind the Black-Necked Crane Information Centre. Family run, it?s the only locally-owned guesthouse in the valley. There are bukharis in all the rooms, plus attached bathrooms and great views from the upper-storey balconies

most 'rustic' place we stayed

The guest house Hotel Gakiling in the Phobjikha Valley was the most ?rustic? place we stayed. We had been given the heads up so we were prepared. Our room was in the main building and was warm and well built, whereas our traveling companions? room was in the back in another building and it was extremely rustic, with an outdoorish bathroom and they woke up to an 11 C chill in their room. There was no hot water and we were warned not to plug in anything as the power surges killed another tourist?s laptop. The staff was very nice and not so formal as other resorts, this was pleasant ? it is not necessary to be stuffy and do a good job at guest service. They served the best food (tofu and soya beans) we had eaten to that point in the tour, and the communal atmosphere of the dining/meeting room was great for meeting other travelers and swapping experiences and stories. A new hotel was being built in behind the current one. The valley was most serene and for the sake of a little roughing it, this hotel was worth one night.
