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.

      I had a wonderful experience with Deya Bhutan travels. I just took the cab and sightseeing package from them. The cab sent was neat, clean and in good condition. The Driver was very good and cooperative.

    • 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!

    • Trip to Bhutan

      I saw many good review about Himavat travels but in our case things didn't went so smooth, instead what I believe is Himavat travels should get banned from TT platform. On our bhutan trip they didn't even provide us permit to visit upper area. later our driver arranged it for us. Upon calling Himavat travels they threaten us to cancel the trip and not to provide any further assistance, Only mistake we did was not went to the police station to register a complaint against Himavat travels. shame on them. But to agree the hotels were good.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      We a group of 11 members visited Bhutan from May 21 to May 28, 2018 including kids. The trip was nicely organised by KNG's especially Mr. Karna Ji, a nice human being and well mannered and soft spoken person. Trip was meticulously planned by KNG and the hotel arranged was quite good except in Paro, where location of hotel was not good i.e. Hotel Khamsum . Visited Thimpu, Punakha & Paro during our stay. Bhutan is a beautiful place to visit with lush green surrounding with beautiful monasteries and kind people. Bhutan's main attraction was Monasteries, Dochula Pass, Tiger Nest, National Museum, Buddha Statue and definitely river rafting at Punakha. I suggest to go to Bhutan from Paro instead of Bagdogara to save extra travel time for that you need to book flights well in advance (5-6 months) as limited flights fly at Paro Airport, this will save your two precious day and unnecessary travel from Phuensoling to Thimpu/Paro. I highly recommend KNG Bhutan and Karna Ji as a travel agent for Bhutan Trip

    • Trip to Bhutan

      This was one of the best trips for us. My wife and I are travel buffs and this time we decided to experience the beauty of Bhutan. Our trip was made even more wonderful due to the warm welcome of KNG. Both their driver and the guide were such nice people who helped us understand the culture and history of Bhutan in a much better way than we could have ever had on our own. KNG event went out of their so many times to make us feel at home and make sure that our visit does not have any hiccups. I would suggest everyone travelling to Bhutan to book through KNG if they want to have an authentic experience of the beautiful country. Thank you KNG and TT for supporting us throughout and making this trip one of the most memorable ones for us.
