Getting to Bhutan

To get to Bhutan you’ll always need to go via another Asian destination as there are no flights directly from the UK. You can either fly via another Asian city, or combine your Bhutan trip with some time in India and travel overland. Whichever way you decide to travel to Bhutan it’s all part of the adventure!

Travelling to Bhutan by Plane

Flights to Bhutan are always with either Drukair or Bhutan Airlines, the national carriers, as these are the only airlines which service Bhutan. Drukair flies direct from Bangkok, Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai, Bangkok and Singapore into Paro. We can also arrange your long haul flights from the UK to any of these Drukair hubs. These long haul flights can start at around £500 per person including taxes and fuel surcharges. In high season flight prices can be higher, and likewise specials can sometimes mean it’s cheaper, but in general it’s always best to book as far in advance as possible to ensure the lowest fare.

Travelling to Bhutan Overland

If you’re travelling to Bhutan by land you’ll do so via India. There are two border crossings open to foreigners, one in the west at Phuntsholing and the other in the East at Samdrup Jongkhar. You can travel in either direction, but most visitors choose to travel from east to west. You’ll need to carry a copy of your Bhutanese visa in order to leave India, which we’ll provide along with the rest of your travel documents.
