Wonderful Review from Mr. Jitendra Patil for his Bhutan Package Tour from Guwahati
WHY BHUTAN PACKAGE TOUR FROM GUWAHATI IS THE BEST OPTION TO TRAVEL BHUTAN WITH FLIGHT?
Bhutan - the amazing place, and Asia's one of the cleanest country with unadulterated nature and pristine ambience all around is most sought after travel destination in 2023 summer holidays. Now, this astonishingly beautiful destination can be travelled from most of the major cities of India – like Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Guwahati. Among them now a days Bhutan Package Tour from Guwahati is considered to be the best option. Now the question is WHY?
It is because that, now from only 3 Indian cities, there is direct flight to Bhutan's sole International Airport [PARO - PBH] i.e. Delhi, Kolkata and Guwahati.
From Delhi to Paro, the return flight fare has become quite expensive. It is almost Rs. 48,800/- Per Head. On the other hand, Guwahati to Paro return flight comes with only Rs. 22,600/- Per Head. Now from Delhi, if a traveller is flying directly to Guwahati, the return flight fare comes around Rs. 10,000/- Per Person (approx.). So, Delhi to Paro Flight Fare via Guwahati Airport comes around Rs. 32,600/- Per Person (Rs. 22600 + Rs. 10,000). It is almost Rs. 15,000/- Savings. Amazing, Right? So, for 3 travellers, it comes near about Rs. 50,000/- Savings per person. It's Wonderful. So, for Delhiites, it is best for you to book a Bhutan Tour Package via Guwahati Airport.
FOLLOWING ARE THE FLIGHTS FROM DELHI TO GUWAHATI, GUEST CAN OPT FOR
02 h 25 m (non-stop)
02 h 25 m (non-stop)
02 h 25 m (non-stop)
02 h 30 m (non-stop)
02 h 35 m (non-stop)
02 h 15 m (non-stop)
Now, the best part is, Guwahati to Paro Direct Flight depart at afternoon 3.20pm on every Sunday. So, guests have ampule of time to arrive Guwahati Airport from Delhi by morning flight, and boarding the flight for Bhutan there on.
Even more interesting fact is that, from April 6th, another Guwahati to Paro Direct Flight is adding on. It will depart Guwahati on Thursday, and Paro to Guwahati Return Flight will be on every Wednesday. So, Guwahati to Paro Flight Schedule will be as follows:
Drukair-Royal Bhutan Airlines
Drukair-Royal Bhutan Airlines
Every Thursday [Start from 6th April]
Drukair-Royal Bhutan Airlines
Drukair-Royal Bhutan Airlines
Every Wednesday [Start from 12th April]
Now, for Mumbai to Bhutan Travellers, there is also a good solution. From Mumbai there is only one direct morning flight to Guwahati. The flight from Indigo Airlines, depart Mumbai terminal around 06:10am and arrive Guwahati Airport around 09:20am. It is almost 03:10hrs journey. So, as per International norms, guest always need to enter airport 3 hrs before flight timings, in this case for Mumbai travellers, they have enough timing to catch flight from Guwahati to Paro on the same day.
So, Mumbai to Bhutan travellers also can enter Bhutan on the same day by connecting flight from Guwahati and it is again cost effective too. In this way, we can definitely say that, booking a Bhutan Package Tour from Guwahati Airport is the best in terms of budget.

Very very nice arrangements during the stay at Bhutan for a week. The tour car is best and having smooth driving with polite nature behavior. Rooms are excellent. NatureWings is very reasonable in commercial. I am planing for next tour with them only.
We went on to Bhutan Tour with my family and was organized by your NATUREWINGS Kolkata. We have enjoyed our holidays very much and everthing was well organized by the team.
During the tour Ms Sabitra guided us very well and there was good co-operation and guidance from the driver. The hotels were Also good with good food. Naturewings won our heart ..
Hi Soumalya, We are very much thankful to you for planning entire Bhutan Package Tour from Mumbai with so proper itinerary, without any hectic schedule. We were able to enjoy all beautiful places, clicking lots of photographs without any worries about reaching to next destination. Hotels were good. Food was great. Especially, we enjoyed ourselves much at Mrs. Sonam's house. She was a gem, very warm and kind hearted lady and great cook. We enjoyed food at her place more than any other since it was home made with love and care. Special thanks to her and Mr Sonam too. Mr. Parmesh, our driver was very helpful too and entertained us lot. He was our part-time guide too.
Once again, I thank you for responding all my queries so patiently and Mr Sandip Raha too (I got a first introductory call from him as soon as I had put my query late in the night around 11 PM) and for completing our trip with success and lots of good memories in Bhutan. I will blindly recommend NatureWings to anyone who is looking for Bhutan Trip in future.
"I booked my Bhutan Package with NatureWings for me & my friend. We two gals traveled with nice car & good young driver. It was really enjoyable. I want to say that they are best in Bhutan sector. I also want to tell travel people that if there r senior citizens then book for them the hotels which has lift to go upstairs or set their stay on ground level but up views are always more beautiful. Thanks to NatureWings for memorable & beautiful stay in Bhutan. Bhutan is very beautiful & peaceful country with very beautiful people as well. You have to definitely try with this sector. If I go again to Bhutan then only I will book with NatureWings."
"Had a memorable Bhutan Vacation (Oct 2017) with NatureWings. Special thanks to Mr. Suman Paul for planning the trip. Also, the operations team in Bhutan supported us very well, many thanks to Ms. Sabitra.
We were 9 adults accompanied by two infants. We were given a comfortable 16 seater coaster. The driver and tour guide were very well informed and friendly. We had a pleasant stay (2N) at Osel, Thimpu. Punakha was splendid with Zhinkham Resorts (1N). In Paro, due to lack of availability we were given two rooms in Tashinamgay and Taktsang (3N). While Tashinamgay was good, I would not recommend Taktsang Boutique Resort at all.
Overall we had a great experience in the beautiful country of Bhutan... Tashi Delek!"
"A very well organised Bhutan Trip from Delhi by Mr. Sandip n his team. Despite a few initial hiccups (the hotel we had locked down initially in the package wasn't available n had to settle for another one), everything went on rather smoothly. Had a great time and a special thanks to the guide Mr. Somnath. Kudos team naturewings n thank you from all of us."
