I will be trekking in Bhutan for a month (September 2016). Does anyone know if I can buy compressed gas (like this image: http://www.cyclocamping.com/articles/gas_canister.jpg) used for a portable cook stove in Thimphu or Paro? I've trekked before, and loved it. While reviewing my notes from my last trip a small cook stove for tea, rice, beans, etc. would be ideal.

I am currently in Bhutan for a research trip. Together with my assistant I will travel to my field research site starting tomorrow. As she has a car herself (Hyundai Tucson) I suggested that we use her car for our trip instead of renting one from a company. She agreed and is thinking about the price now.
