Following are the documents required for Indian tourists to travel Bhutan from Mumbai or Pune. Guest can carry any one of the two valid travel documents :
Summer in Bhutan is between June to end of September when temperature in most of the central Bhutan prevails between 20 to 25 degrees Celsius. It's a kind of Sunny and little humid, nights are cold and you may feel to wear light woolen garments or jackets. Surrounding of cities and tourist points seems green everywhere and clear sky gives an opportunity to behold the long range of snow clad Himalayan peaks. If you travel this time, you can experience Haa Festival which signifies the Bhutanese food, culture, tradition and way of life. With less crowed you can visit and experience many sightseeing places at peace. So, summer is one of the best times to choose for Bhutan Holidays from Mumbai.
In terms of travel month, autumn is the best season for Bhutan Holiday Tour from Mumbai. With pleasant weather which range between 10 to 15 degree, travelling and sightseeing in day time makes comfortable while the nights are considerably chill but enjoyable. This is the festive season in Bhutan and travelers get a chance to sneak the authentic cultural heritage and festivals of Bhutan. The Black-Necked Crane Festival, Paro Tshechu, Punakha Tshechu is held with great festivity mood among Bhutanese people. Dzongs and monasteries come into live with colorful flags flattering in wind, big Thonkas and dances of masked man. For tourist it is high time to travel. But NatureWings suggest to book your Bhutan Package within summer season to avoid peak season rush and non-availibity of hotels and flight tickets.
Winter in Bhutan is not so soothing, rather it's harsh. Due to high Himalayan altitude during winter temperature drops rapidly and cities like Thimphu, Paro, Punakha gets covered under thick blanket of snow making life standstill. In northern parts high-altitude area temperatures can get down to sub-zero. As harsh weather prevails, Gov of Bhutan declares holidays in schools, collages, and Gov. Offices also. Accessibility between different place become difficult due to heavy snowfall. In spite of that, if you wish to experience the snow and cold with some of the festivals that happen during winter, you obviously can book your Bhutan Package Tour this time. Some festivals like Monggar Tshechu, Trashigang Tshechu, Lhuntse Tshechu and Trongsa Tshechu is held between November and December. So don't look back, book your Bhutan Tour from Mumbai in winter without any hesitates. Winter in Bhutan is Awesome!
After a long harsh and cold winter, Bhutan comes to alive during spring. The blooms of Jacaranda and Rhododendron marks the spring in Bhutan. The roads, valleys and surroundings are covered with purple petals which makes the ambience like heaven. During March to May, with little or no rain, sky become crystal clear which marks the begining of world famous Jomolhari and Drukpath treks? Moreover, this is the time of some of the great auspicious festivals like Paro Tshechu, Gasa Tshechu, Rhooddendron festivals, Talo Tshechu etc. The King of Bhutan also takes part in these festival activities. During March to May Bhutan is usually packed with tourists, so NatureWings advise to book Bhutan package from Mumbai as early as possible along with the flights to avoid peak season surcharge, hotel sur-charges and extra flight cost.

The chorten was build in the third King memory, and it was continuously circumambulated by people, murmuring mantras and spinning their prayer wheels. The idea to construct this landmark was proposed by Bhutan third King, His Majesty Jigme Dorji Wangchuk ("the father of modern Bhutan"), who has wished to erect a monument to the World for peace and prosperity. Completed in 1974 after Majesty's untimely death, it served as a memorial to the late King and a monument of peace.
The Clock Tower - Located at the centre of the Thimphu Town, the Clock Tower Square is an architectural wonder one can behold during Bhutan package tour from Mumbai. This tower differs from every other construction or building in Bhutan. It is basically a tower with four clock faces in four directions. The tower depicts of Bhutanese architecture pattern which is basically painted or engraved on wood. The tower is decorated with many intricately carved floral patterns, paintings, and replica of dragons. The dragons on the tower are facing each clock in the tower, which is interesting to look at. The dragon is a holy animal in Bhutanese culture, and it stands for the country's independence.
As this place is a prime attraction among locals and travelers in Bhutan, most people come here in the evening to see and enjoy the exquisite carvings and paintings. This tower is one of the busiest locations in town because there are numerous restaurants, gift shops, and hotels nearby. The square is in close proximity to a number of trade fairs, concerts, and other events.

Situated on the west bank of Wang Chhu River, the Trashi Chhoe Dzong is the formal coronation site of the fifth King that hosts the annual Tsechu festival. This Dzong was built in the year 1641 by the political and religious unifier of Bhutan, Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, later it was reconstructed in the 1960s in a traditional Bhutanese manner, without the use of nails or architectural plans.

Chimi Lhakhang temple is believed to be the temple of fertility, and the Bhutanese hold a strong belief that childless couples are blessed by Lama Drukpa Kuenley if they visit the temple and pray for a child. The road to the temple follows a picturesque rural trail through the paddy field that takes visitors to the temple from the road, and after crossing the paddy field, you will find a tiny stream from where Chimi Lhakhang is just a short climb away.

The approach to the Dzong is through a traditional covered bridge called Nemi Zam.
Nya MeyZam Bridge : "The Bridge with No Fish" is the bridge that connects Par town to Dzong. It is one of the finest specimens in Bhutan and local believe if one sees a fish in the river, it is an ill omen. The earlier bridge which could be folded during the war was washed away by a flood in 1969.

Bhutan doesn't like skin showoff, so you will find both men and women flaunting their traditional dress a Gho for him and Kira for her whenever on streets including the small children's wearing the miniature version. Keeping this in mind don't carry shorts, sleeveless, hats, short skirts, flip flops, and t-shirts on your trip. So pack wisely as many times visitors are not allowed to step inside the monastery if found violating the dress code.

In NatureWings opinion first of October to end of December is best time to hike Tiger's Nest as during this time, sky remains cool, clear and trekking seems comfortable. From January to end of February, heavy snowfall happens in the region and entire monastery remains under thick snow making it impossible to hike. Again spring season comprising of first of April to end of June is also best time to hike Tiger's Nest. Travelers are advised to restrain from visiting this place from July to end of September due to rainy season.

We have concluded our memorable Bhutan tour from Delhi in the last week. It was arranged perfectly by naturewings. Mr Sarkar has done all the bookings after consulting us time to time and provided us the booking vouchers collectively. Sabitra was our tour coordinator who was constantly in touch with us on WhatsApp and asking us about the ups and downs of the experiences.
Our Bhutan Tour guide was Lobzang who is a decent and knowledgeable person. He accompanied us throughout the tour. Our driver Bijay was a funny and cooperative guy. On a whole the experience with naturewings was very very good.
A personal trip made memorable by Nature Wings, Bhutan was always special destination for me and the experience was great!
Hi Soumalya, We are very much thankful to you for planning entire trip 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 tour from Mumbai in future."
When planning for your holidays, we want to choose nothing but the best and Naturewings completely ensures that they give in their best and makes your trip a memorable one. I came across Naturewings on internet and was skeptical to shortlist them as they were based out of Kolkata and I belonged to Mumbai and there was no face to the name. On my first call with Sandip Raha, he assured me and my husband that he would take care of my itenary and I must say he has lived upto all his promises. Right from planning our itenary, to booking our tickets, to sharing the entire trip coordinates, he and his team has done a fab job to ensure that we don't face any troubles at any time. We were well received at the Paro airport by Soumlya Ghosh who thereon was in continuous touch to ensure that every aspect of the tour is well taken care of. Must say that all the properties were unique and the room view was mesmerizing
. Thank you Sandip to ensure that we come back with happy faces and memories worth a lifetime...
Kudos to Mr.Sandip Raha, Soumalya Ghosh and the entire team at Naturewings!!! 👍
I visited Bhutan along with my wife from 9th to 13th Nov'17. The entire package was arranged by NatureWings. It may not be exaggerating to say that Nature wings is one of the finest tour operators i have come across so far. I was totally impressed by their quick and courteous response. They were continuously monitoring our stay in Bhutan. Particularly the response and attentiveness of Mr Suman and Soumalya is appreciable. Even the driver provided was so friendly and so was the vehicle. Coming to Bhutan it is really the land of happiness. We were totally mesmerized by the stunning beauty and ambience. In total it was pleasant trip of happiness altogether. I already referred Nature wings to my friends and for my future trips to Northeast India i prefer Nature wings. Keep it up guys. All the best.
I was searching a destination for Honeymoon and after scanning through a lot of available options we zeroed in on Bhutan the 1st country on Happiness index. Then the search began for popular travels conducting tours to Bhutan and to my shock I found that not many popular players conduct tours to Bhutan. Once while I was scanning through the internet i came across the site of "Naturewings" and sent an inquiry for one of the tour packages and I got a call from the director Mr. Sandip Raha the same evening. He gave me all the detailed information about packages and the options available, it was very much informative and all tour the information was in much detail. After a series of discussions emails, travel options hotel options, options of places to visit we finally choose the itinerary which suited us the best. And all through these communications Mr. Sandip Raha and his team was very patient in understanding our requirement and more than willing to help us in customizing the package. Our Bhutan package included the Popular destinations of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha. During our entire stay at Bhutan Naturewings team remained in good contact from time to time which is a rare quality with other tour operators. All the hotels were chosen personally by Mr. Sandip Raha and all of them were really fantastic especially the hotel @ Paro. All in all i would say the experience with "Naturewings" was very good and I must say they have very strong network in this region and you can trust them. Once you have shared with them your requirement rest assured that Naturewings will come up with the best package and trust me they keep all there promises.
We just completed our butan trip arranged by NatureWings. well it was amazing, all the arrangements made by Mr Suman were good all hotel bookings and vechile provided were good. our tour destination for the first two days was changed at the last moment due to Bhutan govt holidays so we visited two days at jaldapara at West Bengal which was also an amazing experience with jungle safari. I would like to especially mention about our driver who was there through out the Bhutan trip Mr. Drupa, he was an excellent driver and an excellent person, very much devoted to his work thanks to nature wings for providing us such a nice driver. Actually my daughter Miss Saloni had searched nature wings through Google but we r happy with it Bhutan is such a wonderful place. Would love to visit eastern Bhutan too.
Thanks once again NatureWings & Specially Mr Suman.
