The driving distance in Bhutan chart shows some short distances but the time taken might look weird. Thats the actual time taken and its not a mistake. Being a mountainous country and road being narrow in some places the speed of vehicle is less than 50Km/hours most of the time.
Bhutan has network of roads throughout the length and breadth of the country. Our roads might not be as good as the ones in developed countries but they are well maintained in most places.
Recently, road widening is being carried out in most places so, some stretch might be little rough but in few years time we will have a well maintained double lane roads from West to East of Bhutan.
We will give you a rough idea of driving distance and domestic airports connecting various towns in Bhutan.
Bhutan has three domestic air ports which has occasional flights. The domestic air ports are located in Bumthang (central Bhutan), Trashigang (east Bhutan) and Gelephu (south Bhutan).
We don’t have rail or other modes of transportation so the only way to move from one place to another is by road or by domestic flights to the places mentioned above.
Most of our road are well maintained and we have a fleet of comfortable vehicles with experienced drivers to make your travel as comfortable as possible.
Most of our roads twist and turn so it takes longer time to cover these distance.
