Welcome to Samdrup Jongkhar Dzongkhag
Entering the country at the border crossing with India at Samdrup Jongkhar offers quick access to the east from India's Assam state. In the other direction, the only reason to make the tortuous drive into southeastern Bhutan is to leave it via this border crossing. Political tensions and strikes (bandhs) in Assam can make transport options uncertain, though these have become infrequent in recent years. Your Bhutanese agent will be able to make enquiries as to the current situation, but you should be prepared for last-minute delays.
