Home > Getting into Bhutan

There are two ways to enter into the kingdom of Bhutan. You can either take a flight or use roadways to enter Bhutan. Bhutan is a landlocked country so there is no provision of entering the country by seaways.

Taking a flight
Flying is the easiest medium to get into the kingdom of Bhutan. Druk Air: the national carrier of Bhutan operates various flights from different Asian countries to Bhutan. The flights land at the Paro International Airport (PBH), the only international airport in the country. The Paro Airport is Bhutan’s only air field which is considered as one of the most beautiful airports in the world. The airport is 1.5 miles above sea level, and is surrounded by breathtaking Himalayas. An estimated 30,000 tourists use the airport each year, often for holidays in Bhutan.

By roadways
If you are coming from India you can chose the roadways to enter the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. You can either enter from Phuntsholing while coming from the west, Gelephu is the entry point if you are travelling from the central region and Samdrup Jongkhar in the only option to enter the Dragon Country from the east. The Airport at the Indian town of Bagdora lies at a 4 hours’ drive from Bhutan’s Border at Phuntsholing. The entry point at Phuntsholing would serve you better if you’re travelling via Sikkim, West Bengal of India or Kakarbhitta of Nepal. You can only exit through Samdrup Jongkhar in southeast Bhutan to Guwahati of India. From Guwahati, you may fly into other Indian cities like Delhi, Bombay or Kolkata for your onward flight connections. Even though Bhutan shares its border with Tibet, there are not treaties established yet to open the border crossing between these two countries.
