There are flights to Bhutan from major cities like Bangkok, Kathmandu, New Delhi, Kolkata, Singapore, Dhaka. The flights are scenic and are your ultimate mountain flights. So the visitors always rush for the best seats in the air craft. You can see the up-close view of the Mt. Everest and other Himalayan ranges. Yes, you heard it right.

The seats on the Bhutan flights are allocated on the “First come, first serve basis” at the check-in counter of the port of entry into Bhutan.

If you travel to Bhutan from Bangkok or Kolkata, request the ground staff at the check-in counter to issue the seat on the right. Those flying from Kathmandu or Delhi may request to assign the seats on the left, possibly by the window.

If you are travelling to Bhutan from New Delhi or Kathmandu, you will see a beautiful mountain panorama. You will see five mountain peaks all above 8000 m, Mt. Everest (8848 m), Mt. Makalu (8463 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8188 m), Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586 m), Mt. Lhotse (8516 m) and finally Mt. Jomolhari (7326 m). But if you travel to Bhutan from Kolkata, Bangkok or Singapore, then you will see the panoramic Mt. Kanchenjunga and Mt. Jomolhari.

The chances of seeing these scenic high points on the surface of the earth are even better if you travel in early spring or winter or in autumn. The morning flights are better as there will be less or no clouds to obstruct the mountain ranges.
