I am looking online for tours to Bhutan. The one thing i want to include on an itinery is a trip to Phuentsholing where Bhutan meets India and theres a Crocodile farm.
Does anyone happen to know any bhutan tours that goes to Phuentsholing. It would be good to make this trip without having to finish the tour by crossing into India. As i think most tours prefer you to have a return ticket from Thailand
I have a plan to enter Bhutan through Phuntshilong border by road and my first destination will be Thimphu.
So far, I understand that I will be given permit for Thimphu at Phuntshilong border.
My question is do I need to have separate permits for Paro, Punakha, Bumthang, Wangdue, Gangtey, Trongsa, Lhuntse & Trashigang?
How long it takes to get this permit and what are the costs relating to this?
Where should i buy Bhutan Dress?

Did anyone who has travelled or is travelling to Bhutan have to sign a Release Form regarding liability release of risk and guarantee from your tour company. This is the first time we have been sent these forms which release our legal rights. We are not trekking, just travelling as a pair with a driver and tour guide. Are all drivers experienced and the condition of motor vehicles in excellent road worthy condition. Thank you.
We are a family of husband, wife and a 14 year old boy. I wish to know the following --
1. Is it a must to go through a travel agent/ tour operator? We are Indian nationals.
2. We plan to go to Bhutan in the 1st week or 2 nd week of May this year, what are the places we can cover in 8 to 9 days? We are interested in scenic locations, easy treks, home stays and a bit of culture and massages. Would be grateful for any suggestions for an itenary.
3. We propose to drive down from the city of Gangtok in Sikkim, India. So would be entering from Pheuntsholing. Is that the right route or is there any better option?
Thank you so much.
