DAY- 8 DEPARTURE
We flew back from Paro to Kolkata and then onwards to Bangalore. Paro to Kolkata was in Drukair, Royal Bhutan Airlines and one of the best Flight experiences I have had so far.
A FEW GENERAL TIPS OVERALL:
Everything shuts down early (6 pm local time), except a few restaurants – so plan your days accordingly. Bhutan Peach wine & Bhutan Whiskey are some of the finest and I enjoyed it every day during my stay. Also, you are in high altitude, so don’t forget to keep yourself well hydrated at all times to keep headaches and dizziness away.
Bhutan’ changeable climate means you have to bring an assortment of clothes including rain gear and good walking/hiking shoes. Mode of transportation within Bhutan is by road. There are no domestic airlines or trains. No vaccinations are currently required for traveling to Bhutan. We visited in May which is Spring season and the best time for treks as well.
Hand-woven textiles, carved masks, woven baskets, wooden bowls, handmade paper products, finely crafted metal objects, thangkha paintings and Bhutan’s exquisite postage stamps are the items mostly purchased by travellers and are the best souvenirs.
