How can I purchase Druk Air tickets? You tickets will be mailed to the Druk Air office of your embarkation City. You can obtain the ticket upon check in at the counter on the day of travel. These procedures are more practical way to get your ticket since the airline being small is not well represented abroad.
When is the best time to visit Bhutan? March - May and September - November is the best time to see Bhutan. During these months the weather is semi dry and landscape covered with multi color vegetations. It is also the season for various spiritual festivals that are organized in different cities throughout the country.

December - February is dry with daytime temperature of 16-18 degree Celsius (60-65 degree F) if the sun is shining. By contrasts, the evenings and mornings are cold with nighttime temperature falling below freezing. Winter season is also a good time to visit Bhutan and experience a tranquil facade of the country not usually seen by most visitors. Advent of winter brings about peace and tranquility in the region, as life in Bhutan settles down quietly in preparation of the winter months. One can truly appreciate the natural beauty at this time of the season, with crystal clear view of the snow-capped mountains against the backdrop of bright azure sky (Similar to the pictures below the Menu buttons). The fields in the valleys are abounding with the colors of poinsettias and green banana plants. The rooftops of the villages are covered in red with hot chilies drying in the winter sun, as the villagers pass the time leisurely. It's a time of rest and nature's way of rejuvenating ones body and the spirit, with every breath of fresh air. It is indeed a unique experience not to be missed.

How can I get to Bhutan? Can I travel overland from India? The best way to enter Bhutan is by Druk Air (Royal Bhutan Airlines) the national carrier of the Royal Government of Bhutan, operating to seven cities in six countries ? Kathmandu (Nepal), Delhi & Kolkota (India), Dacca (Bangladesh), Bangkok (Bangkok), Yangon (Myanmar).
Yes, you can also enter Bhutan overland from Indian cities of Siliguri, Darjeeling, Sikkim and Kalimpong.
What outfit/clothes should I wear for Bhutan? Season-wise, a good guideline is to follow much as in Northern Europe-Germany-France-Switzerland; cold winters, cool-cold spring, warm-hot summers, and cold autumn. Warm jackets, woolen pullovers are recommended for winter; comfortable walking shoes; summers, light cotton is good. For trekking good strong hiking shoes with water protection for summer treks, light cottons or jeans are also good. Please do not forget to have at least one set of formal clothes for use in attending festivals, visiting the Dzongs, or meeting with government officials; a semi-formal dress is good for normal sightseeing and visiting temples and monasteries.
