    • 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?

      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.
