Travel to Bhutan

Though, the best answer in regard to how to go to Bhutan from India is via boarding a flight. Until 1960-70, it was quite difficult to enter the Kingdom of Bhutan. Transportation facilities were not as well-built as they are now. People were unsure about whether they should travel from India to Bhutan by air, road or rail. However, ease of traveling to Bhutan has increased ever since, owing to its planned economic development.

With its primary international airport, called Paro, the country has a great connectivity with other parts of the world. Indians can hop on flights from New Delhi, Kolkata, Bagdogra, and Guwahati by availing services of Druk Air and Bhutan Airlines for a convenient journey. Moreover, Indian citizens can enter Bhutan without a visa. In fact, it is also not mandatory to have a passport as long as the visitor has a legitimate voter identity card issued by the Election Commission of India. And, as the transportation has got convenient as well, one can cover the India to Bhutan distance of around 2059 kms by road and airways both. One can choose to board a plane or hop on a road ride via Gelephu and Phuentsholing linking with the states of Assam and West Bengal.

Here’s our detailed information about how to reach Bhutan from India via various travel modes.

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.

    Mayank's 8 days trip to Bhutan

    I am very much satisfied with the overall booking i got the best quote and all things were manage nicely. guide and drive both were professional and made it a memorable experience. I had booked tour with Bhutan INC and i think they are one of the best travel agency for bhutan travel i recommend
    them. But overall booking experience wasnot that good i was promised a quote which was very good but at the time of booking that quote got increased by 15k which is not professionalism. Guide and driver both were amazing and explained everything in details.

    Alhad Posam

    Mumbai

    Alhad's 6 days trip to Bhutan

    Bhutan trip was amazing we loved Bhutnese culture and people. Hike to Tiger Nest was our Best Memory of the trip! It takes between four and five hours to do the round trip hike, plus one more hour to tour the monastery. Many people also have lunch in the cafeteria not far from the monastery. Plan on
    leaving Paro around 8 am and arriving back at your hotel around 3 pm.
