In Bhutan, you can connect with four airports in the country’s western, central, southern, and eastern regions. Although airlines always aim to provide the highest service, Bhutan’s unique landscape occasionally makes for unreliable departure dates. Yonphula airport – located in the eastern part of Bhutan – is given to unpredictable weather in the summer months due to its altitude and micro-climate. Flights are thus sporadically delayed or canceled. Other domestic airports are located in Bumthang and Gelephu, and there is an international airport in Paro.
There are three points of entry into Bhutan through the borders with Indian cities if you plan to travel by land. You can either enter Bhutan through Phuntsholing, the main trade city located in southern Bhutan, Gelephu located in southern Bhutan, or Samdrup Jongkhar located in southeastern Bhutan.
Below are the three entry points to Bhutan via India:
Phuentsholing (Bhutan) via Jaigaon (India)
Gelephu (Bhutan) via West Bengal (India)
Samdrup Jongkhar (Bhutan) via Assam (India) – You can take a flight to Guwahati Airport and travel by land to Samdrup Jongkhar
