Discovering the hidden treasures of Bhutan in a week

Thu 28 April 2016, by Steve

Getting to Bhutan

You can only fly into Bhutan via Delhi or Kathmandu, so it’s likely you’ll need to stop over for a night in Delhi. We stayed in a local homestay not far from the airport, and I thoroughly recommend it.

Aerial views over the Himalayas

The next day we flew from Delhi to Paro, Bhutan’s only international airport. This is without a doubt one of the most scenic flights you’ll ever take; it’s all about the views, so make sure you get a window seat. You will fly over the Himalayas and sometimes you can see Everest, before descending into Paro through a stunning valley with green lush land, mountains and over pretty villages.

On our arrival, we met with our guide Yadop and driver Kinga, both wearing traditional Bhutanese dress; like a fancy dressing gown, with knee-high socks and smart shoes. This dress code is required by all Bhutanese nationals throughout the daytime.
