Private bus services run from Phuntsholing to Thimphu, Thimphu to Bumthang, and Bumthang to Tashigang, Tashigang to Samdrup Jongkar and from Tongsa to Gaylegphug. Indian nationals and government project workers must use public transport. Mountain biking is a good way to see the Thimphu and Paro valleys; but you must bring your own bike.
International Driving Permit: The International Drivers Permit is required.
What is an International Driving Permit? The 1949 (IDP) is a special licence for tourists, authorised by a UN treaty among nations of the world, for the purpose of allowing motorists to drive vehicles in international traffic without further tests or applications. It is proof that the holder possesses a valid driver's licence issued by a competent authority in their country of residence.
How do I obtain one? You can obtain an application by either contacting your local Automobile Association office to pick-up or have an application mailed to you. Links to the Automobile Association sites for the following countries are provided below.
