    I am from Delhi and I know that the distance between Delhi and Bhutan is a lot, plus the flights are very expensive.
    I will soon be visiting my cousins in Bhutan, and was wondering whether it would be a good idea to go to Bhutan from there!

    It would be great if someone can guide me on how to reach Bhutan from Guwahati?
