1. The Tiger Nest Resort, Paro

I will be visiting in July 2015 so would like to find out more.
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?
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?
Amongst Phuentsholing, Jaigaon and Hasimara, what could be my best option, in terms of safety, connectivity and budget, for an overnight stay? I intend to travel by public/sharing transport and am looking for a standard budget hotel with basic requirements.
What would be all inclusive average cost of a small car/day in Bhutan. We are a couple with 04 years old kid (Indian)
We are active and enjoy: small hikes (not treks) for beautiful scenery, rafting, culture, etc. We don't want to be in the car all day long and don't want to get altitude sickness. Is it possible to see the Himalayas from flying to/from Nepal into Bhutan?
Any suggestions on tour operators and attractions?
Could any one tell me the difficulty level of the trek upto Tigers nest Bhutan? I am an average fit person who walks 4-5 km every day on flat land.
If i dont wish to take a tour.... how can I travel within Bhutan? Can I hire a private taxi for one week?
Also is it necessary to have a guide over there?
tobacco or simmiler things allow or not by traveling by road from india?
does smoking allowed in bhutan
Small group 3-5 people going to Bhutan. 60 ish, but active, adventurous experienced economy travelers (Yes we know that economic and Bhutan travel do not go together, but we are highly motivated.) Not planning to do long bike trips, do overnight treks, water rafting, bungee jumping this trip. Planning for very end of Sept into October. >10 days. Since we must use an agency, which one can you recommend.
is bhutan a great country to visit
My wife and I are going to Bhutan in 2nd week of May,in a photo tour, and will be having standard itinerary of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha, 2 days each. After this we will separate from the group, and have 2 days extra. How shall we use them? Explore more in Paro or in Thimphu or shall we squeeze in an overnight trip to Bumthang region with a hope of different experience, terrain and additional photo opportunities?

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?
I am travelling to Bhutan in April and have been advised to get tetanus , typhoid and Hep A injections.Do people think it is really necessary.
