  • Q1. How to get Bhutan?

    There are two ways to get into Bhutan, either fly or overland through India. Druk Air operates to Bhutan from Thailand, Nepal, and India. Flight from Kathmandu (Nepal) is perhaps the most amazing flight as it offers spectacular views of Everest, Makalu and Kanchenjunga on its way to Bhutan.

  • Our Company will help you for visa procedures. We must submit the visa application to the Bhutan government at least 1-2 weeks prior to your arrival date to allow time for processing. The actual visa will be stamped in your passport when you arrive at the Paro airport.

  • The best time to visit Bhutan is March to May and September to November.

  • Of course there is ATM facility in Bhutan. You can collect money from all the banks in Bhutan.

  • Most visitors will have no problem adjusting; altitude sickness may be a problem for certain people. Our cultural tours program does not reach altitudes higher than 3500 meters from sea level.

  • It depends on the season of travel to Bhutan. Except for summer season, warm clothing, down jackets, and sweaters are recommended. In summer, heavy cottons and lightweight woolens will be better.

  • There are a bunch of smiling and hospitable people. Where ever you go, you will always become their family member.
