Our Most Frequently Asked Questions About Bhutan
How large is Bhutan?
Bhutan is 38,394 square kilometres. Think the same size as Switzerland and similarly land-locked and mountainous. Even the houses have a similarity in their shape and look.
How do you get to Bhutan?
By air is easiest from Bangkok, Singapore, Kolkata, Delhi, Bagdogra & Kathmandu. Pre COVID there was just one land entry & exit border crossing open for tourist visitors at Phuentsholing from West Bengal (India)
What is the altitude of Bhutan?
This varies between each valley. The lowest region in the south bordering India is around 450 m and the highest Himalaya peaks in the north, bordering China/Tibet, are over 7000 m. The main valleys traversed by the single west-east highway, in central Bhutan, range between 2300 m in western Bhutan (Paro & Thimphu); down to 1250 m in Punakha; up to 3000 m in Phobjikha (central) and around 1500 m in the eastern Bhutan region.
