My wife and I (from Calcutta, India) are thinking of holidaying in Bhutan for about 10 days in the second half of December, 2006. We plan to drive up from Calcutta and visit Thimpu, Paro, Punakha and the Bhumthan. Could anybody give me information about driving times between these places, whether the roads will be motorable in December and whether Indian citizens require any permit to enter Bhutan. I'd also be grateful for recommendations regarding standard hotels in these towns.

Hi Rohan,
Thanks for the info.
