Travel within Bhutan

Travel within Bhutan is by motor vehicles only. There are no internal flights, trains or accessible waterways and much of the country is not accessible by road. The main motor road, run west-east with some intersecting road that connects with southern border, leaving the northern part and most parts of the country accessible only by trek. Busy traffic is rare, but the mountainous terrain and winding road restrict the average speed of vehicles to less than 25 miles (40 km) per hour. Covering distances can be tiring but spectacular with ever changing landscapes.

If you venture east of Thimphu, you will spend hours driving on rough, winding roads. You can get carsick with the constant bouncing and motion, especially in the back seat of a van or bus. Bring along some anti-motion sickness pills. Wind Horse Tours in Bhutan owns and as well as rents well maintained vehicles.

We provide Toyota Sedan cars for 1 or 2 person touring Thimphu, Paro, Phuntsholing and Punakha. If you itinerary covers beyond these places or you are in the group of 3 pax, we provide well mantained SUVs such as Toyota Landcruisers or similar. For small groups, Wind Horse will provide Toyota Hiace Van (cap 8 pax). For groups exceeding 6 pax, we provide Toyota Coaster or similar coach. For groups exceeding 14 passengers, we recommend 2 coaches.
