After all the excitement built up for the last two months the D day had arrived, all 24 riders, 18 from Bangalore and 6 from 4 different sub chapters were looking forward to this first ever ride in a different country. Two riders had reached Bagdogra the previous day itself and the rest 22 had gathered at the Bangalore airport on Thursday early morning. All were greeted by Ride Captain Ajit and Tour Captain Prashanth Babu, all were handed over various goodies by Prashanth Babu at the airport. Many group pictures were taken and all were in the same aircraft to Bagdogra from Bangalore.
All landed at Bagdogra on time, one of the busiest airports in the country at 11 am. We were connected to our bus operators and after checkout all boarded two mini buses for Phuetsholing, the first entry city to Bhutan. After two stops for lunch and tea we were in Phuetsholing by 5.30 pm. A stark difference between India border town of Jaigaon and Bhutan’s Phuetsholing. A neat and clean city, well mannered people. The tour operator from the Bhutan side welcomed us and took us through the small immigration pass for tonight’s stay in Phuetsholing.
All walked up to the hotel from the immigration office and settled down to the allotted rooms for rest and break. All gathered at the dining area for tour brief and tomorrow’s paper work at immigration office for the 7 days permit. All joined and listened patiently to our leader Budha, tour guide. Handed over our passports and SDF fees to him. After which all joined for the grand dinner. Ride Captain Ajit gave his instructions for tomorrow’s ride. All slowly retired to their respective rooms. Few ventured out of the hotel to see the night life of Bhutan. A wonderful day came to an end.
