As of now there are no domestic flights in Bhutan, so the best way to explore the country is either by road or on foot. However, three domestic airports are coming up in central (Bumthang) eastern ( Trashigang) and southern (Gelephu) Bhutan. The central and eastern Bhutan domestic airports will be operational by 2012. This makes possible for visitors to explore western, central & eastern in limited time.

Many of the rural areas are still not accessible by road and therefore have to be reached only by foot or on horseback.
