    • Are solo Indian travelers permitted to visit Bhutan on their own?

      Bhutan Feb 9, 2015 at 1:06 AM

      I came across some blogs which mention that as per some recently imposed rule, solo Indian travelers are no longer permitted to enter Bhutan.

      Has anyone recently visited Bhutan and could suggest how true is this information? How do I obtain the entry permit and special area permit as a solo Indian traveler?

    • Indian traveler to Bhutan

      Bhutan Feb 8, 2015 at 6:02 AM

      I plan to travel to Bhutan in April.

      1. What is the situation of low to medium budget hotels/guest houses/hostels/bed and breakfast at Timphu and Paro?

      2. Are SBI debit cards/Visa debit cards of other Indian banks accepted at Bhutanese ATMs (I believe ATM machines are readily available at Timphu and Paro)?

      3. Are 500 and 1000 rupee notes (Indian Currency) accepted in Bhutan?

      4. Other than the permit which I'll obtain at Phuentsholing, will I require any other permit to move out of Timphu and visit Paro, Punakha, etc? If yes, then how do I go about obtaining those permits and what are their charges?

      Where should I go between my flights to Paro from Kathmandu?

      Paro Mar 31, 2014 at 9:02 PM

      I will be going to Paro in end April. My flight is from Hong Kong arriving to Kathmandu at 22:00, but then my next flight to Paro is the next day at 0925. It's approx 10 hours in between so I hesitate to book a hotel just for that, as well to pay the Nepal visa just for few hours.
      Would that be safe to stay in the airport overnight? Or I have the access to get in to the Kathmandu airport lounge, would they be opened until the next morning?

      We want to go to Bhutan in October for 2 weeks in combination with 4 days of Katmandu. Any suggestions for itinerary?
      From a travel agent we received this proposal:
      Day 1 arrival Paro
      Dag 2 Paro
      Dag 3 Paro – Thimpu via Haa
      Dag 4 Thimpu
      Dag 5 Thimpu – Wangdue via Punakha
      Dag 6 Wangdue – Trongsa
      Dag 7 Trongsa – Bumthang valley
      Dag 8 Bumthang valley
      Dag 9 Bumthang – Mongar via Ura
      Dag 10 Mongar / excursie Khoma
      Dag 11 Mongar – Trashigang
      Dag 12 Trashigang / excursion Tashi Yangste
      Dag 13 Trashigang – Samdrup Jongkar
      Dag 14 leave Samdrup Jongkar
      Is this offering a good diverse view of the highlights or is it missing some must sees?
