The process, in reality, requires first to look for options then choose a getaway based on the size of the hole it will burn in your pocket.

If you drive from India to Bhutan, you get an entry for 7 days without a passport and if you fly to the place, you get an entry for 1 month. Both of them are extendable, though.
