How to Reach in Bhutan

Prior to this, Bhutan was totally cut off from the rest of the world until 1960. There were only two entry points i.e. through the north and south. The northern route was through Tibet and the southern route was through the plains of Assam and West Bengal. It was inaccessible due to the extreme climatic conditions from both the part, so the Bhutan government planned out an economic development and made the country available. At present there is a good road network along with domestic and international airports.

By Air By Air

Druk Air is the National Air Carrier of Bhutan that operates flights from Paro to Delhi, Kolkata, Gaya, Kathmandu, Bangkok and Dhaka. It is well connected to these places. Paro is the lone international Airport that connects Bhutan to rest of the world. If traveling from India, then there is only Druk Air at the service. This airline is considered to be very safe in terms of travel.

By Road By Road

After crossing Phuntsholing, situated 170 km east of the National Airport of Bagdogra, there are hair-pin bends while climbing the mountain and you reach Thimphu; the capital city of Bhutan. Gelephu in south-central Bhutan is 260 km from Thimphu. Whereas Samdrup Jongkhar is the only entry point from East Bhutan. It is 150 km from Guwahati; Assam. Just three hours drive.
