Kolkata to Paro distance

By AirBy RoadBy TrainBy Sea
Kolkata to Paro1.0 hours19.0 hours--

Kolkata is one of the original 4 metro cities of India, and is a major commercial, tourist and cultural hub in eastern India. The city has been the centre of administration during the British occupation of India and thus had developed infrastructure and connectivity to the whole of India. The city is connected to the whole country and foreign countries through international flights, ports, etc. And the road and rails connect the city to all of India.

By Air: Druk Air and Bhutan airlines both operate direct Kolkata to Paro flights on a regular basis from Kolkata. The connection from Kolkata to Paro is a long-term one with flights on regular intervals and on an almost daily basis. The 535 km distance takes about 1 h 15 m to complete and is a cheap flight with an airfare of around INR 8000. Air travel is the best way to travel as one directly reaches Paro and does not need to go through the borders and the arduous road travel

By Rail: Bhutan does not have a rail connection to India and as such one cannot reach Paro by train from Kolkata. Since there is no Kolkata to Paro train, one has to catch a train for Hasimara which is just 15 km from Bhutan border and check-point. The journey takes about 13-15 hours for completion, from Kolkata to Hasimara, not counting the time taken for onwards travel.

By Road: For the braveheart, it is possible to reach Paro from Kolkata but only after a long and tiring journey of 870 Km. Just reaching the Phuentsholing border will take about 19 h of continuous driving to cover the 710 km distance. Travelling from Kolkata to Paro by road can be a fun experience for those who travel for the sake of travelling and not reaching the destination.

      Dinner at hotels are very expensive whereas I have seen most of travel agents had arranged brake fast and dinner at hotels only. In one hotel they are demanding USD 56 per head ( for dinner). Appreciate if travel agent include dinners in package. Buddha idol in Thimphu.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      Thanks to AD Bhutan tours for making this trip memorable. Their service is really good and quick. Both Ms. Saraswati and Mr. DB Gurung were constantly in touch and checking if we need anything. We did face few hiccups in our hotel accommodation however the team instantly looked for an alternative. My suggestions have been taken very positively and I bet it's only going to get better. The driver assigned to us Mr Phuntsho was fabulous and professional. Overall a very good experience and would definitely recommend the future travellers of Bhutan to travel with them. Tip 1: instead of flying directly to Paro , i would recommend a road trip from Phuentsholing rather the journey is picturesque. Also the souvenirs are much cheaper in p'ling compared to any other city. Tip 2: Indian currencies are accepted here upto denomination of 500INR. Tip 3: Definitely indulge in local food if you are a foodie (Check out Zombala or simply bhutan in Thimpu) Tip 4: Cut some slack. Locals are very helpful, in case if the staff in your hotel is getting confused with your requirement explain it to them calmly with a wide smile and they are happy to help.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      I had a wonderful experience with sunshine travels. Although I had done booking a month back, but just before a couple of days it was informed that border gates will be closed owing to general elections happening in West Bengal. Still Lalit ensured to get necessary approvals so that we have a smooth entry in Bhutan. He was very supportive and available at all times. In fact there was some issue in arranging vehicle (wagon R) in bhutan so Lalit informed me from beforehand that he might have to book a bigger vehicle (creta) for which i will have to pay some marginal amount more and only if I confirm he will book it. Driver Namgay who was also a tour guide was phenomenal. He showed us around , guided us and even when we decided to include Punakha town in our trip besides earlier planned Thimphu and Paro, he was very accommodative. His pleasant personality and hospitality added to the charm during the trip. Honestly speaking, I had booked first time from travel triangle through a local agent ( all previous trips were through MMT , Thomas Cook etc) but this time my dates were not matching so I decided to do it through travel triangle and sunshine travels. I am really happy for this decision as it turned out to be a memorable trip. Hotels were good in Thimphu and Paro and Phuntshoeling hotel was decent considering the place. I will recommend sunshine travel to anyone travelling to Bhutan.

      Travel agent messed up with Bhutan permit. A day was wasted and had to hustle up in line for the permit. Other than that, driver and car was good, guide was a bit less informed. Hotels were good. All itinerary was covered even when we lost a day, and a few extra places as well.

      Punakha hotel was a disaster. Items sold in different places of bhutan are all supplied from jaigaon. Rate are more cheper in jaigaon. Drivers are local person. They should communicate these to the trourists.
