Day 1: Mumbai-Bagdogra-Phuentsholing
Our flight was from Mumbai-Kolkata-Bagdogra and we arrived at 6 PM. Lot of taxis are available for Phuentsholing (India-Bhutan Border). We bargained a bit and hired an Innova for Rs. 3200. The route was full of truck traffic and it took 5 hours to cover a distance of around 180 kms. We stopped at Pankhawala Dhaba (Maynaguri junction) for dinner. It was typical dhaba food and we hogged on Tawa rotis, Bhindi Pyaz, Dal butter fry, Kadi Pakoda, Papad and Bhurji. This is the best place to eat on this route. Sometimes it is good to trust the driver for places to eat.
We reached Jaigaon (Indian town border) for an overnight stay at Hotel Satyam. This hotel is located at a stone’s throw from Bhutan Border Gate and is a decent budget place for Rs. 900 a night with an in-house restaurant. You need to pre-book during peak tourist season.
