Bhutan Travelogue 2017: A Visit to the Himalayan Kingdom

The much anticipated Bhutan tour, which was on the cards for a long time, finally happened in November 2017. We had decided to enter the country through Phuentsholing, the gateway to Bhutan from North Bengal, as the trip from Phuentsholing to Thimpu is definitely a highlight of any trip to Bhutan. The trip was for five days spanning four locations in Bhutan – Phuentsholing, Thimpu, Punakha and Paro. Accordingly, even the travel diary is organized into four posts. Since time was short, just like with most people travelling to Bhutan, we could not spend too much time in any place, and hence will not call this an exhaustive account. In the limited exposure we had, I have tried to outline as much as I could internalize, with a special emphasis on the local food habits.
