Student Training

Authentic training experience for local Bhutanese students

Tourism and hospitality students at The Royal Institute for Tourism and Hospitality receive hands-on training of 120 hours each per year at Zhiwa Ling Ascent. Here they learn valuable skills from making room reservations to check-in and check-out, and culinary arts - including wine service - to spa therapy.

All services are taught to the students under the supervision of an experienced and professional hospitality team. If you have ever visited Zhiwa Ling Ascent’s sister hotel - Zhiwa Ling Heritage in Paro Valley - you will feel the same level of care and attention.

Like Zhiwa Ling Heritage, Zhiwa Ling Ascent is committed to developing an all Bhutanese team and strives for excellence in hotel service. Through your support, students strengthen core skills, grow in confidence and deepen their awareness of Bhutanese hospitality.
