International flights arrive and depart from Paro daily. At present two carriers operate to Bhutan, Drukair and Bhutan Airlines.
When you travel throughout Bhutan, a guide will accompany you on your journey and be with you at all times on transfers from place to place. Gangtey Lodge is situated in the 4th of the 5 valleys that make up the Bhutan journey. Gangtey (Phobjikha) Valley
The Bhutanese government has been very deliberate in their tourism policies since opening up to foreigners in the 1960s. One of these policies requires all visitors (except for citizens of India, Bangladesh, and the Maldives) be accompanied by a Bhutanese guide and driver.
The usual length of stay for most tourists is 2-3 nights. But a lot of people comment when they are leaving that they wish they had stayed longer. We think a minimum of 3 nights is suitable to fully experience all that the Gangtey (Phobjikha) Valley and our Lodge has to offer you.
Visa on arrival is issued by the local travel agent on booking your trip and sent to you via email in advance to enable you to check-in at the airport for your inbound flight. If you book directly with us we send all of your details to a local travel company who arranges your entire trip to Bhutan.
