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.
