If you want to experience the happiness in the human being,  if you want to explore the heaven on the  earth,  if you want to chase the mountains,  then Bhutan is the right place. The monks,  monasteries,  Buddhism are experienced in Bhutan. The way nature throws awesomeness at Bhutan it's glorious. I started to accomplish my Wishlist,  hence planned for Bhutan.
Do s and Don't s for travel Bhutan by road or air:
1. Do pack your bags accordingly with the season.
2. Permit office keeps open on Monday to Friday. Be sure to arrive on time.
3. Visa on arrival also there. Avail that service after reaching to Paro directly.
4. For the permit,  passport is mandatory and day wise booking details for the rest of the cities in Bhutan.
5. Bhutan gives 7 day travel permit once for selected cities. If anyone want to extend it they can extend from Thimphu itself.
6. Book car to travel to Bhutan if in case more people. It takes along 3500-4000 per day.
7. Buses are available but need to match the time.
8. If traveling by road then,  make sure vehicle permit also need to take along with yours.

Day 1

Finally day arrived for Bhutan back packing trip. Landed in bagdogra and started for jaigon which is Indian border to enter in Bhutan. From bagdogra you will get taxi service for jaigon. It takes around 5-6 hours from bagdogra to reach jaigon.  Bagdogra is nearest airport for Bhutan,  Sikkim.

Day 2

Phuntsholing is the nearest border to Bhutan one who wants to travel by road from India.  For travel permit,  need to go early in the morning to avoid hassle for waiting. Passport or voters Id is necessary for getting travel permit to Indian citizens. For other countries e visa is the facility which is available on drukair site.  After completing all formalities for travel permit, started journey to Thimphu.

In the evening,  reaching to the Thimphu after so many hours of travel was the awesome feeling. Stayed there for the night, from the morning started sightseeing of Thimphu city.
