You can enter Bhutan by flights or by overland Journey from southern border. Bhutan being the mountainous country entering into Bhutan is either by flight or by land. The roads are well connected and country is bordered with INDIA in the south and Tibet and China in the North. Though China is our next neighbor in the north but we do not have any diplomatic relation with them and therefore no road or Flights operates from Bhutan to China. If you have onward journey to China from Bhutan you have to fly to Kathmandu Nepal or Bangkok Thailand.
There are three entry points from India to Bhutan and if you are planning to drive overland to Bhutan you have to come via INDIA. The first entry point is from Phuntsholing bordered with west Bengal. If you are planning tour in North east INDIA (Sikkim, Darjeeling and Kalimpong) the best route to enter Bhutan is via Phuntsholing and this is the main route used by most of the tourist. The journey time from each of this place will take 4 to 5 hours depending upon the traffic.
Second Entry point is from Samdrupjongkhar in the east near Guwahati. This is quite far from main touristic center but if you plan to explore East West Bhutan journey you have to enter by road from Guhati to Samdrupjongkhar.
Third entry is from Gaylegphu the southern District but this entry point is hardly used by the tourist due to unavailability of airport nearby the city.
