There are always some things that you’d wish you’d known before travelling. Below is a short and non-exhaustive list of tips we’d like to share with you:
Bhutan’s international airport is Paro – and it perhaps one of the most traditional looking airports you’ll ever see. It’s beautiful!
You can start your holiday in Bhutan from any of the airports listed below, although we recommend Delhi, Kathmandu and Bangkok as these have the most regular departures and give you more flexibility with your itinerary. Guwahati airport is an option for those on a longer trip, or aiming to see festivals in the east who don’t want to back-track to Paro from Eastern Bhutan. From there you can return to Delhi.
There is a visa fee or US$ 20 for visiting Bhutan, but many people confuse this with the minimum daily tariff for groups. This stipulation of a minimum tariff is why Bhutan has remained an authentic destination. Tourism has been well managed and the quality of services and accommodation have remained very high.
Bhutan is wonderful all year round! Of course we would say that. Largely it depends what you want to do.
Many people book their holiday in Bhutan around a festival that they want to see. It’s a great idea to do this, but just make sure you book way in advance if you want to secure the limited flight tickets and comfortable hotel rooms. See the provisional list of Bhutan’s main festival dates on this page. Paro and Thimphu tsechus are the busiest of all.
As far as climate goes, every season has its own benefits and drawbacks.
The most popular months to travel to Bhutan are in spring: March, April, and May, and the autumn (fall) months of September, October, and November.
