Entry into Bhutan & Visa
Bhutan is accessible by air and by road.
The land route is through the border town of Phuentsholing, Bhutan's
southern gateway and commercial hub. The town is a three-hour drive from the
airport at Bagdogra in the Indian state of West Bengal. The Indian hill
stations of Darjeeling and Gangtok are seven hours away by road.
Druk Air, the national flagship airline, is the only such service operating
in the country. Its two British Aerospace BAe 146 jets, technically the
aircrafts most suited to Bhutan, fly to and from Paro town. Paro is, thanks
to the difficult topography of the country, Bhutan's only airport. Druk Air
fllies in from the capital cities of Bangladesh, Nepal, and Thailand and
from New Delhi and Calcutta in India. Each of these routes offer views of
some of the highest mountains in the world such as Mt. Everest, Mt.
Kanchenjunga, and Bhutan's revered peaks of Chomolhari and Kulagangri.
Every airport on the world's mightiest mountain range is subject to the
whims of nature and Para is no exception. Druk Air flights are sometimes
delayed by unfavourable weather so visitors would do well to include an
additional day in their itenraries. But rest assured that the airline has
had no history of mishaps in its 18 years of operation.
