We boarded the Kanchankanya Express and reached Hashimara next day. From there, we took prebooked cabs to Jaygaon , which is the bordertown town of India and Phuentsholing, which is the border town of Bhutan. We had to get permission from the Bhutan immigration office to enter Bhutan. Since the office stays open till 3pm everyday and we reached after 3pm, we had to halt for the night in Jaygaon. Next day we quickly got our permission and set off for Bhutan.
Our first destination was Paro which was approximately 6hours away. As we drove up the mountain towards our first stop Paro, the weather turned chilly and downright freezing. Even getting out of our car for a bathroom break turned out to be an ordeal for us. Paro is an essentially small town with beautiful landscapes.
