Luxury holidays in Gangtey

When to go

October to December are often considered the best months to visit, bringing clear skies and plenty sunshine. From May, things get more hot and humid; monsoons arrive from June to September, often hiding the mountains from sight. If you want to see the black-necked cranes, go between the end of October and early February.

Getting there

  • Planes

    You’ll fly into Paro, a five-hour drive from Gangtey. Most people reach it via Delhi, Calcutta, Bangkok or Singapore. The Smith24 team can arrange your flights and transfers; call anytime, day or night.
  • Automobiles

    Tourists need to pre-arrange their transport with a tour operator, so it’s unlikely you’ll need to do any of the driving yourself. Bhutan’s roads pass through soaring mountain ranges, meaning they’re often tight, winding and flanked by steep drops – best left to local drivers, we think.
