TravelPod Member ReviewsNamgey Hotel Phuntsholing
Hotel Namgyal cost us Rs. 1300 plus tax. Was not a great place to be- with dark dingy rooms, but seemed fairly clean. It was very well located though- 2 min walk from both the permit office as well as the 2 best restaurants in town- Kizom café and Zen restaurant. You could check other options in Phuntsholing- we are not aware of what other options are available. Our taxi driver (based in Phuntsholing) whom we had called earlier had booked the hotel for us.

They use the cliffs and the rocks to make sign posts. Always interesting.
I am very glad that I went - in Phuntsholing, I found time early this morning to take some pictures of a local temple and the gate to china.
Enjoy Mary ann
... It's the sort of place you can wander along the railway tracks with the locals and people are excited to see tourists rather than view us as piggy banks to be rattled and raided!We had booked a Jeep for ourselves in the afternoon rather than share with up to four other passengers. This was more costly but still only £15 and hopefully would mean we had a bit more control over the trip; i.e. we could get the driver to stop and look at birds or, God forbid, look at the rhinos for more ...
... did not take to! It was hard, dry and tasteless but Rinzin and Namgay relished it!
We then went looking for a suitable spot by the Haa River (the Haa Chu!) for our planned picnic but didn't find one, so we ventured further afield and found a fantastic spot on a hill with a great view of the fabled 'Three Ridges of Haa'. Needless to say, once again ...
... We had some traditional bengali food before leaving India for the next 8 days or so by paying off around Rs 350 for 3 people we headed off for Phuntshoiling, Bhutan.
It took us around 3 hours time to reach a place called JAYGAON. JAY GAON is the border town between the two countries. It has a gate colored in blackish red and protected by black cat army, and Indian army on one side and the Bhutan army on the other side. Jaygaon is a very familiar old dirty Indian ...
