      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.

      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?

      Hi there

      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

    • Question about permit

      Bhutan Jun 19, 2012 at 10:43 AM

      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?

      Suggestions for an itenary for 8 to 9 days

      Bhutan Mar 12, 2012 at 1:49 AM

      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.
