In January 2017 we travelled Bhutan from East to West. If you are interested in the story, or if you’re planing to take the same route: It starts here: First stop India. The main roads entering the country are through Phuentsholing in the south, linking Bhutan with the Indian plains of West Bengal, through the border towns of Gelephu, in the central region and Samdrup Jongkhar (our choice) in the east from the Indian state of Assam.
The alternative is to fly to Paro directly. You can do that from Bangkok, Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Bagdora, Bodh Baya, Dhaka, Guwahati, Kathmandu or Singapore.
Here starts our first day in Bhutan: From India to Bhutan.
