9 day itinerary for Bhutan: Backpacking Trip

We backpacked to Bhutan in 2016 Summers and this has been one of the most memorable trips that we have done in recent past. Here are the details of our 9 day itinerary for the trip including our road travel from Phuentsholing to Thimphu and return. In case, you are taking a flight to Paro, you will be able to save 2 days  and this will become a 7 day itinerary.

During our trip, we visited Thimphu, Punakha, Haa Valley & Paro and mostly traveled by public transport (Bus or shared cabs).

Happy exploration!! Please feel free to write us in case you need any help in preparing your itinerary.

  1. All of your Bhutan blogs are really helpful. I am planning to visit Bhutan in mid February and I found your blogs are some good source of information.
    By the way can you please tell me is it ok to visit Bhutan in February and also can I travel around Bhutan as per your itinerary if I’m travelling in February?

    1. Thanks so much, Riya. February would be cold months, that would be the only thing. So be prepared for the cold weather. You can certainly follow our itinerary in case you are like a backpacker. In case, you are travelling with family, would recommend to go slow and book your own vehicle.

    1. For us, it was ~INR 25K for two person including all our expenses (shopping too) – Excluding Flights and train expenses in India. Please note that we had back-packed for most of our journey using either buses or shared jeeps and except a day or two, had stayed in budget hotels only. Hope this helps 🙂

    1. Yes Either Voter ID or Passport is mandatory. Aadhar Card alone is not acceptable though at times, they allow but there is no certainty.

Happy to hear from you
