Delhi, being the capital of India is also one of the cities of the country which is universally connected to most major locations across the world. There are several Delhi to Bhutan flight options for anyone looking to reach Thimphu from the Indian capital city. However, travelers making the trip from Delhi to Thimphu have several options. Here are some of the methods of how to reach Thimphu from New Delhi.
By Air: Thimphu may be the capital of Bhutan, but as of yet, there is no airport in the city. However, having the number of attractions that it does, people still fly into Paro, where Bhutan's main airport is located. There are several flights from Delhi to Thimphu, Bhutan, or rather Paro, however, most of them have an unnecessarily long layover in Bangkok or even Kathmandu. There are easier ways to travel to Thimphu from Delhi, such as flying to Kolkata, from where getting a plane to Paro is a matter of time with regular flights from the capital of West Bengal, which usually take 1.30 hours, and then from Paro they can make use of cars or taxis to travel the remaining distance to Thimphu.
By Road: Travelling from Delhi to Thimphu by road is comparatively a long journey, but one that is still possible. The road distance between Delhi to Thimphu is 1774 kilometer journey which takes around 32 hours on the road. Those traveling by road will need to pay tolls as they will cross Uttar Pradesh and Bihar before entering West Bengal. They can use the Jaigaon-Phuentsholing border entry to enter Bhutan, from where they can make the car journey to Thimphu.
By Rail: While there is no direct rail-line connecting Delhi and Thimphu, for people who want to travel by train from the Indian Capital there are options. They can take the train from Delhi to Kolkata, from where they can go to Hasimara. From there they can cross the border at Phuentsholing and travel the rest of the way by car or taxi to Thimphu.

Trip to BhutanExcellently organized by the agent Old Monk (Bhutan) and well supported by Travel Triangle Great conversations with the driver/guide
Trip to BhutanIt 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.
Trip to BhutanHad 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.

Trip to BhutanBus was fine, but your driver was little arrogant, not prepare to listen anything.
Trip to BhutanThe 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.
