Bagdogra To Thimphu Distance

By AirBy RoadBy TrainBy Sea
Bagdogra to Thimphu2.0 hours8.0 hours--

Bagdogra is the town that has the second international airport in West Bengal. It is one of the main reasons why Bagdogra is so important because the airport operates flights to the destinations lying in the north-east of India. Bhutan is one of the main countries where flights go from Bagdogra. This is otherwise a small town located half an hour’s drive away from Siliguri. People wishing to avail flights to Thimphu from near Siliguri can take it from Bagdogra instead of going all the way to Kolkata. Here’s how to reach Thimphu from Bagdogra.

By Air: The airport has two Bagdogra to Thimphu flights every week going to the Paro airport. Paro is the only airport in Bhutan and since it is only 1.5 hours away from Thimphu, going from Bagdogra to Thimphu by air is quite convenient. The flights are run by Druk Air – Bhutan’s national carrier, and as of now they only fly on Sundays and Tuesdays from Bagdogra. The journey takes only 30 minutes, and thus one can easily reach from Bagdogra to Thimphu in less than 2.5 hours altogether.

By Road: If one chooses to take the roadway, it is not an impossible one but certainly a very long-drawn one. Bagdogra to Thimphu distance is nearly 330 kilometers, which takes more than 8 hours to drive. So unless someone specifically wants to make the road trip, going from Bagdogra to Thimphu by road is not very wise. However, transport is not a problem since there is Bagdogra to Thimphu bus route which is easy to follow. There are buses from Bagdogra station which takes one to the border at Phuentsholing and from there another bus or taxi can take the visitor to Thimphu.

By Rail: Hasimara is the nearest Indian railway station to Thimphu Bhutan, which can be reached from NJP station in Siliguri or Sealdah station in Kolkata. In the same manner as before, one can take a cab or auto to the border at Jaigaon- Phuentsholing from Hasimara to reach Thimphu.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      It was a decent tour in general but there are certain points that were not satisfactory and can be vastly improved upon. I will list down those points below: 1. The itinerary/quote didnt mentioned specifically where all there are entry fees and where all we were supposed to pay...It was mentioned that all the site seeing will be covered by the company but still the entry fees of places like museum and library etc were being expected to be paid by us. (To which we ultimately didnt comply but the amount of arguments we made to save that part was extreme ) 2. We were expecting a driver cum guide .... Like it is provided by all good travel companies ..But that was not been provided to us... I would like to clarify that the person who accompanied us was a very good and patient driver & We dont doubt his capabilities as a driver but he was not a guide. 3. The accommodation arranged at Punakha was very disappointing. The location of the property no doubt was good but the location was not of much use since the room we were given was not overlooking the view outside, instead it was overlooking a semi-public courtyard cum passage and jeopardising our privacy because of the windows. The room was damp with deep blisters on the wall along the skirting. The washroom didnt had the basics ---a handspray with the commode and a tap below the bathing shower. 4. There is a sheer mismanagement in terms of availability of cash or payments with the team. Till the time I communicated with Ms.Sushmita and her female senior I was not made aware of the severe crisis of cash at Jaigaon/phuntsholing. I was assured that if i want to make payment after reaching phuntsholing then i should make the payments through cash for which there are multiple atm available around, which is clearly half the information provided. 5. The company was completely relying on the payments made by us and didn't had any form of credit with itself. This became an issue for us when even for fuel of the vehicle the driver had to ask cash amount from us. The issue magnified because there was already a crisis with the atms continuously persisting throughout the tour. What we would Appreciate: 1.Our accommodation arranged for rest of the three places..Good Locations, great views and very polite and cooperating staff. 2. Our driveperson Deepraj, extremely patient and cooperating , drives very well.

      Had an amazing experience. Bhutan INC did a great job in organizing the trip on a very short notice just 4 days before my travel date. The hotels were comfortable. The guide and the driver were top notch. Everything was taken care of starting the time I stepped out of Bagdogra airport.

      It was awesome trip to Bhutan with wonderful memories of life time, It was our best decision to choose Deya Bhutan Tours & Travel as our Trip Planner for Bhutan Trip ,we stayed at Taj Tashi at Thimphu,Clean & Peaceful City, Le-Meredian and Naksel Boutique at Paro which had an awesome view Overall, all 5 of us traveling together from 7th to 12th June were very happy with the personal care taken by Deya Tours, Ms Hema was very friendly & accommodative. We would highly recommend Deya Tours & Travel if you are planning for Bhutan.

      The travel agent (Mr Lalith) was very friendly and had personally welcomed us to phuentsholing and all the immigration formalities were done in a jiffy without any hassle. Three travel agency has a lot of value for money and we were honestly baffled by the level of service provided to us.I would definitely recommend this travel agency. Each day of the trip was a unique memory on its own. The whole trip was dazzling with each day bringing out a different adventure. In short, the whole trip was an unforgettable memory that we will cherish.
