Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalaya's eastern edge, is a land of monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic topography ranging from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are a destination for serious trekkers. Taktsang Palphug (Tiger's Nest) monastery, a sacred site, clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley.

How to reach:

Entry to Bhutan is through border towns of Jaigaon (Indian side) and Phuentsholing (Bhutanese side). or Fly to Bagdogra, West Bengal. From airport hire a taxi for Siliguri town and get off at its bus station, which will take you about 30 minutes (17 Kms). From bus stand, book a bus for Jaigaon which ofcourse doesnt cost more than Rs. 60 or so, but buses are quite rickety and to top it, as already mentioned above, roads are bad. Time taken by bus will also be about 3 to 3.5 hours.
