  • How do I get a visa to Bhutan?

    All nationalities require a passport for entry into Bhutan. Please ensure your passport is valid for at least 6 months from date of entry. Contrary to just about the entire rest of the world, Bhutan does not issue Visas before you arrive through their Embassies or Consulates. The only way to get a Visa is to get it on arrival to the country. However, you can’t simply show up at their doorstep and be allowed in. You must apply with a tour operator and submit an application form for approval BEFORE you arrive. The Tour Operator will submit your application for approval to the DOT, and their approval process takes a minimum of 1 week.

  • Do I need a visa to India?

    Yes, an Indian visa is needed since you will be crossing the border for the transfer to Guwahati Airport. 


    All foreign nationals entering India are required to possess a valid international travel document in the form of a national passport with a valid Indian visa. An e-visa facility is available for nationals of most countries.

    Passport should have at least six months validity from the date of arrival in India. The passport should have at least two blank pages for stamping by the Immigration Officer.

    International Travellers should have a return ticket or onward journey ticket,with sufficient money to spend during his/her stay in India.

We had an absolutely fantastic time riding across Bhutan's stunning countryside. The equipment was first rate. Kinga, our guide and Karma, our driver, made every day a treat; this trip is a perfect blend of recreational and cultural adventures. Their hospitality and support were greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!
