Driving Distance

Transportation in Bhutan

The National Highway is the only main road that traverses from the West of the country to the East. It is a 3.5m-wide stretch of tarmac that winds its way up and down mountains, across bridges, along the side of cliffs and over high mountain passes. Roads can be steep and winding, making a journey of 100km a morning’s adventure. Our contemporary fleet of 4WD SUV’s, spacious Toyota station wagons, as well as Toyota Coaster and Hiace buses are perfectly suited to covering these long distances and winding roads.

For those travellers who may be prone to motion sickness, we recommend bringing medication with you as a precaution due to the winding roads.

We recommend that travellers to Bhutan come with a relaxed attitude and a sense of adventure to get the most out of their journey.
