Transportation in Bhutan

Most places in the country are well connected by roads. We have our own luxury buses, minibusses, SUVs and other means of transport can be easily arranged.

There are currently only three entry points to Bhutan. While most travelers arrive by air at Paro (The only International Airport in Bhutan), some arrive by road at Phuentsholing, which lies on the southern border with India and others choose to fly to Guwahati airport in Assam, India and enter from SamdrupJongkhar in southeast Bhutan.

In either case, tourists have to fly in/out by the only national carrier, Druk Air and Private airliner, Bhutan Airlines. Druk Air has no interline agreements with other carriers. Hence, tourists need to arrange for their own tickets to and from wherever they connect with Druk Air, as that is the only airline that flies into Bhutan. Flights from Kathmandu to Paro provide the most spectacular view of Himalayan vistas of any scheduled flight. The Airlines does not issue tickets until they have received the visa clearance. Paro airport is just a drive of a few minutes from Thimphu (capital).
