All about: Bhutan Travel

This article will provide important information for tourists intending on travelling to the country of Bhutan,. There is currently no British representation within the country's borders, and the closest consular office is located in Kolkata, India. The capital of Bhutan is Thimphu and the country is a land-locked state in Asia, situated in the vast Himalayan mountain range.


Gangtey Valley One of the most popular tourist destinations is the Gangtey Valley, founded in 1613, which is a Nyingmapa monastery and is associated with other well-known Nyingmapa monasteries, such as Bumthang and Tamshing.
Mongar Dzong Another famous structure for tourists visiting Bhutan is the Mongar Dzong, which is less than 60 years old, but houses for around 50 and 60 monks.
Trekking in Bhutan is a popular activity, due to the outstanding natural beauty of the Himalayas, although the region involves some of the most rigorous and dangerous mountain climbs in the world.

Staying safe

Terrorist attacks
The country has a low threat of terrorism and tourists should be aware of the risk of terrorist attacks in certain areas, such as popular attractions frequented by international visitors. The risk of terrorism is highest near airports, train stations and busy areas, such as shopping centres, high-rise buildings and large hotels. Arranging holidays in advance People travelling to Bhutan should arrange their Bhutan holidays well in advance, through an established travel company.
Need for the passport People intending to travel to the country independently on their British passports will not be able to enter the country. Luckily, there have been no reports of any incidents, in which a British national required consular assistance in the country. However, people are strongly advised to store a photocopy of their passports and any other important documents when travelling. Medical and travel insurance It is essential to have all of the relevant medical and travel insurance, before leaving the United Kingdom. Many UK bank accounts include comprehensive travel cover, but it is important that people understand what their policies include, so that they avoid encountering any problems. Registration of electronic devices Tourists are also instructed to register their electronic devices (such as laptops, cameras and mobile phones) with Bhutanese customs, when they arrive in the country. Anyone engaged in criminal activity can expect lengthy sentences or expensive fines.
