Please help me to start planning a trip to Bhutan

Jump to last reply

I have been wanting to go to Bhutan for a while, so would like to start planning for 2018. I know it is too early, but I would like to use my mileage for a flight from Chicago to... (Delhi, Katmandu, etc), and in general, seems like this trip requires a bit more coordination than usually, so wanted to have some time.

We (my husband and I) will have two full weeks total for an entire trip.

My first question is on recommendation on how to spend these two weeks. I understand we can fly to Paro from Nepal, India, Thailand and Singapore. However, we have been to Thailand and Singapore previously, so thinking to flying to Delphi or Kathmandu, prior to flying to Paro. We have never been to India or Nepal.

I was thinking of maybe spending about 8 days in Bhutan, and 5 days in India to see the Golden Triangle.
Another option is to spend 5 days or so in Nepal and seeing some of the sites in there.
Or maybe we need to increase time in Bhutan, but we are not trekkers and seem a bit expensive to stay longer.
What do you recommend? Really looking forward to seeing your input.

I also would like to visit during festival time. I am not sure if it makes sense to plan around major festivals, or we can attend a smaller ones. Do you have any recommendations on this?

And lastly, where do we start? Do we start by contacting a local agency to discuss dates, festivals, flights to Paro, and only then plan on purchasing international flights?

So many questions ... Looking for your help to get me started...
