About Bhutan Tourism

About Bhutan Tourism:

Bhutan is the underrated gem of Asian tourism that has long stayed hidden within the majestic peaks of the Eastern Himalayas. And, that has a lot to do with the fact that Bhutan travel was not open until the 1960s. Dotted with sacred monasteries, elaborate dzongs, sprawling green valleys and snow-covered crests, the Buddhist kingdom is a dream destination for travelers. The unique thing about Bhutan is that by the decision of the State, the country has not been transformed into a modern hub of tourism with all the typical contemporary draws. Bhutan tourism has somewhere held on to the cultures, customs, and traditions that have sustained the country and they did not exchange it for cheap attractions typical of the contemporary tourism. The beauty and the appeal of Bhutan take time and observation to appreciate, as it is rooted in the history of thousands of years. And, if one can afford both, the Land of the Thunder Dragon will not be a disappointment at all.  

History of Bhutan:

Oddly enough, in spite of being right in between two colossal empires – British India and the Chinese Empire, Bhutan has never been colonized in its history. Buddhist theocracy is what gave Bhutan its primary identity, which was reunited by the Wangchuck dynasty following the civil war of the 19th century. They are still the monarchs of Bhutan and known as the Dragon King. However, the monarchy itself has been constitutionalized, and Bhutan is now run by a parliamentary democracy.

Their age-old heritage is still Bhutan’s number one source of pride, and that is what makes this small landlocked country so gracefully unique.

Sightseeing in Bhutan:

Taking a step back from fun and frolic, if you look around the country, the impact of Buddhism will be only too evident. There is a dzong – a fortress-monastery complex, or a simple monastery shrine or just a chorten in almost every nook and corner of Bhutan. Although the cities like Thimphu or Paro are much more urbanized now, if you dig deep and explore into the roots, you will stumble upon the religion propagated by Guru Rinpoche thousands of years ago.

The popular destinations are Taktsang Monastery or Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Paro, Punakha Dzong, Tashicho Dzong, Gangteng Monastery and many more such Buddhist spiritual institutions scattered around the country.


Trekking in Bhutan:

A Bhutan trip will be as spiritually rewarding as it would be adventurous and exciting. Replete with many glacial rivers flowing down from the Himalayan peaks, there are lots of adrenaline-filled activities, including whitewater rafting and kayaking, waiting in the Land of Dragons. However, water activities are not your thing, but you still love to be outdoors, trekking is the best thing to go for. Bhutan trip is sure to include numerous trekking trails, of which Jomolhari Trek is the most famous one. Dochula Pass, the Druk Path, Snowman trek routes I and II and Dagala Thousand Lakes, there are many such trails all around the country with exciting paths and scenic beauties.

Festivals in Bhutan:

Being one of the most spectacular destinations on earth, Bhutan is famed for its religious festivals, like: Paro Tshechu, Thimphu Tshechu, Jambay Lhakhang Drup, Wangduephodrang Tshechu, Black-Necked Crane Festival and more.

Nightlife in Bhutan:

Besides sightseeing, adventure and festivities to savour in the Land of the Thunder Dragon, one will never be deprived of nightlife, here. Crammed with some of the best nightclubs, visitors can enjoy the best of nightlife in Bhutan. The list of some recommended nightclubs include: Vivacity, Club Ace, Mojo Park, Space 34, Om Bar, Khuju Luyang, Benez Bar and more.

Travel to Bhutan

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

Located in Paro district at a height of 7300 ft. above sea level, Paro International Airport is the nearest airport to Bhutan. It is the only airport to enter the country from India by air. Druk Air is the only airline that operates regular flights to and from Bhutan to India. People also take flights from Bagdogra airport near Siliguri, West Bengal. Being one of the closest airports to Bhutan, one can take also avail a cab or car service across Phuentsholing, and enjoy a tour to this enticing place.

By Train

Although, there are no direct rail routes to reach Bhutan from India, one can board a train from Hasimara station or New Alipurduar stations, which are 17 and 60 kilometers away from Phuentsholing, the border town of Bhutan. From there, tourists can book shared taxis, individual cabs, and buses to reach Bhutan.

By Road

One can also choose to go to Bhutan by road. Unlike other foreign countries, going to Bhutan by roadways from India is quite an easy task. There are only three land borders which are open for entry – Phuentsholing, Gelephu and Samdrup Jongkhar. While Phuentsholing shares a border with the Terai region of West Bengal, the other two are along the Assam border. It takes around three hours from Guwahati to Bhutan by road and same from Siliguri as well.

By Car:

One can take a private car or hire one to travel from India to Bhutan, and enjoy a tour while navigating through its alpine zones and sub-tropical regions. However, one needs to show some documents at the border.

By Bus:

One can also choose to travel via bus from Kolkata to Bhutan. It takes around 18 hours to reach Phuentsholing from Esplanade  Station and 4 hours from Siliguri.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      My trip to Bhutan was very spontaneous. I had less than a week to plan the trip and make all my bookings. I decided to use travel triangle to find an agent as I just used the site before and was happy with the service. The first response I received was from the Bhutan Old Monk team and they were very prompt and helpful. As the trip was very last minute, I had just a few days to plan and arrange everything and the team especially Suman was really helpful with making changes to the itinerary as I needed. Suman was constantly in touch with me to ensure everything was going well. Even while on my vacation they were able to provide me with assistance when needed. Yadop met me on my first day in Bhutan. I requested him to change my hotel as the location wasn't convinient and he got it changed within a few hours. Jeewan was an exceptional driver/guide/photographer/genie (lol) throughout the trip. He was very helpful and even offered to drive me around in the evenings because I was travelling alone and he was afraid I would get bored. My solo trip turned out to be a lot less solo than expected but I really appreciated the hospitality. Bhutan is an amazing and wonderful country that I visited by chance because it was convince to travel to, required no visa and was completely safe for a woman traveling alone. I would encourage more Indian, solo, woman travelers to visit this beautiful country and experience the beauty and tranquility of the land of the thunder dragon!

He was patient, adjusting and gave us a personalized experience. I strongly recommend both Mr Yadop and Mr Namgay.. If you are planning for Bhutan they are the people you need to reach out to.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      We had a wonderful trip with travel triangle at a nominal rate, stay in phuensholing was awesome with swimming pool, stay at Thimpu was very good in the capital city and the stay in Paro at an elevated resort was wonderful, hospitality too was unimaginable. The driver come guide Mr. Yugen was too cooperative, soft spoken, Very friendly, drove the latest KIA SUV safely on the ghat sections, finally the shopping was too memorable. Stupa, bhudda statue, temples in phunaka, fortress in paro & thimpu, dochula pass, museum was too good and ultimately the hiking in tiger's nest was superb, and we had a sweet memorable trip with travel triangle. Thanks to the organizors.
