Day 1

#TripotoTakeMeToSandakphu

Bhutan is a beautiful place to visit. The best part is Indians do not need a passport to visit the place and no visa. So pack your bags and get moving !

We started our trip at new jalpaiguri where our driver was waiting for us to take us to phuentsholing which is where you get the permit for moving ahead.

After getting the permit (which took about an hour ) we moved ahead to Paro which took us around 6 hours to reach.Checked into our hotel and rested.

Midway between our trek to the tigers nest in Paro. It was so serene and beautiful ,just waiting to be clicked.
