Bhutan is known by many names. The Land of Thunder Dragon, The Land of Drukyul, The Land with highest Gross National Happiness(GNH). It is the only carbon negative country in the world. Bhutan has four seasons & a tropical climate. Every season has it's own charm and each season has something to look forward to. I visited in Winters (December, January and February), end of December. Selected this time of the year as I wanted to catch a glimpse of Black - Necked Cranes at the Gangtey (Phobjikha) Valley and also wanted to experience winter Snow for the first time ever in my life. What can be better than a Himalayan winter!
The best thing about planning a trip to Bhutan was No Visa required (Citizens of India, Bangladesh & Maldives need no visa or entry fees to travel in Bhutan and are only Nationals that have permit for independent travel). Bhutan is not expensive. Indian Rupee (INR) & Bhutanese Ngultrum (Nu) value is equal. And even our currency (INR) is widely accepted in Bhutan so one doesn't need to get into the currency exchange business. Also, there is a fun fact about the Paro airport - only 8 pilots are qualified to land at this airport, making it the most dangerous landing in the world. How cool is that?
Bhutan is easily accessible from India by air as well as road. Road trip obviously needs more time. I traveled by air. A valid passport or a voter id card is enough. There are two flights that operate from India - Druk Air & Bhutan Airlines from Delhi, Kolkata, Bagdogra and Guwahati. On arriving at the Paro airport, after visa-on-arrival procedure(need to show accommodation details & return ticket), one can buy the local sim cards Tashicell or B Mobile.
