How do I get to and around Bhutan?

There are a multitude of different transport methods to get to and around

Travel to Bhutan

There is only one international airport in Bhutan – Paro. Bhutan is well connected with India, Nepal and Bangkok. Once in Bhutan, we use comfortable four wheel drive vehicles to travel between destinations.



We tailor make tours hosted by excellent local guides – including foreign-language speakers – and we have many years’ experience in designing and managing tours for larger groups. (Both special-interest groups and tour series).


Travel by road is the more common and efficient mode of transport. We do not recommended self drive, as traffic and narrow roads can be very daunting for first time travelers to Asia. In Bhutan public transport system is not evolved or suited for travelers hence we do not recommend it for our foreign travelers..

What to remember when travelling around Bhutan

All visitors coming to Bhutan will have to fly in with Druk Airline which is their national carrier and the only airline with good international connectivity. Bhutan is connected from Delhi and Kolkata in India, from Kathmandu in Nepal and from Bangkok in Thailand.

There is a domestic air operation between Paro Airport and Bumthang in Central Bhutan, operating 3 days a week.
