How to travel to Bhutan from Malaysia?

I would say – fly to Nepal, transit in Nepal, spend a night or several nights in Nepal, then fly to Bhutan, spend a few days in Bhutan, then fly back to Nepal, spend a night again or a few nights, then fly back to Malaysia.

There is no direct flight from Malaysia to Bhutan. Only two airlines operate flights to and from Bhutan. Druk Air(the national airline) and Bhutan Airlines operate inbound flights from various cities within the region. There are direct flights to Paro, Bhutan from Singapore, Bangkok, Dhaka, Calcutta, Kathmandu, Bagdora, Guwahati and New Delhi. Therefore Malaysians looking to visit Bhutan must first travel to any of the aforementioned cities and catch a flight on either of the airlines to Bhutan.

Why  Kathmandu? not Bangkok, Singapore, New Delhi etc? 

  • Flight tickets from Malaysia to Nepal then to Bhutan is cheaper compare to other routes.
  • You can visit Nepal before traveling to Bhutan. Nepal has a lot to offer. Mount Everest and Lumbini – Birthplace of Lord Buddha will be the reasons to convince you to spend the transits in Nepal, and not in Bangkok, Singapore or India.

Below is the suggested itinerary for Nepal Bhutan Tour from Malaysia 6 days 5 nights.

  • Day 1: Malaysia to Kathmandu, Nepal.
  • Day 2: Nepal to Bhutan to Thimphu – International Flight from Nepal to Bhutan using Drukair!
  • Day 3: Thimphu Sightseeing | Travel from Thimphu to Paro | Paro Sightseeing
  • Day 4: Paro – Tiger’s Nest
  • Day 5: Bhutan to Nepal – Flight from Bhutan to Nepal
  • Day 6: Nepal to Malaysia

Above is the itinerary for those who want to travel to Bhutan via Nepal. I guess you will be wondering how much to travel from Malaysia to Bhutan via Nepal? 

If to follow the above itinerary, and you are traveling in a group of 2 person (2 to go), you will need to pay

Total you will spend only USD 500 + USD 1200 + USD 100 + USD 30 = USD 1830

If you are traveling from Malaysia to Bangkok then from Bangkok to Bhutan = you will need to pay much more as flight tickets from Bangkok to Bhutan will cost USD 800 ++ per person.
