So what's the deal? A DEL-PBH roundtrip is around US$700. On the other hand, flying from DEL to GAU and then returning from IXB to DEL using low-cost domestic airlines costs less than $200. This saves around $500, which allows tourists to spend two more days in Bhutan. The downside other than the long drives? The flight to Paro offers a chance of spectacular views of the Himalayas, and for many people this is the most memorable flight of their lives.
