Bhutan has everything of its own. It is complete within itself quite successfully. So to experience that difference I planned out a small trip to Bhutan. Have you ever thought about a place which is quiet and calm like a mountain and adventurous like sea waves? Then, believe me, Bhutan is a place which fits into both categories. If you are planning for a short trip to Bhutan, you should remember a few things which will help you out greatly. Never take the help of a guide, just be yourself (follow the traffic rules). Travel in a local bus to experience the authenticity of Bhutanese people, which will change your all misconception of living life and the best way to see the difference between our country and Bhutan. Go for local food Below is a brief overview of how my journey went and how I earned memories that I will cherish for all of my life. Routes to reach Bhutan There are several routes to reach Bhutan by road. It is always better to start your Journey from India (for my overseas friends) but if you wanted to land straight into Bhutan, there is an international airport at Paro which is also the only airport there. If you landed in India, then there are few routes which will take you to Bhutan without any hassle. Nearest Railway Station to Bhutan As I live in Hyderabad I choose a morning flight for Kolkata (CCU) and started my journey from there. A train is my favorite, and also the most comfortable mode of vehicle, in my opinion. So I booked my tickets in Kanchankanya Express (train no 13150) from Sealdah (boarding time: 8.30 PM) to Hasimara (destination time: 10.46 AM). There are many trains which are connected to the north Bengal from where Bhutan is easily reachable. For my Indian friends, it’s always best to take the railway to experience the beauty of North Bengal forests and mountains in the journey. There is no train route in Bhutan. Tourist are required to reach any of the train stations located in Indian territory and board a cab or local transport for Bhutan. New Alipurduar, Siliguri, New Jalpaiguri Station and Hasimara are some of the railways stations nearby of which, Hasimara situated in West Bengal is only 17 km away from Phuentsholing. Airport in Bhutan For my overseas friends, Paro Airport is the only international airport, situated in the deep river valley of Paro Chuu. There are regular flights from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangkok, Nepal, Kathmandu, Dhaka, Singapore, Bagdogra, Gaya, and Gelephu. Flight tickets are comparatively costly throughout the seasons. Permit or Visa for Bhutan Next essential thing is the permit or Visa. Indian, Bangladesh, and Maldives citizens are the luckiest one to travel in Bhutan without Visa. The only thing required is a Permit. Now there are various ways to get this permit. Those who are flying from India to Bhutan can easily get the permit done at The Paro international airport immigration service. I got my permit after reaching Phuntsholing. Phuntsholing, also spelled as Phuentsholing is a border town in southern Bhutan and is the administrative seat of Chukha District.
