2.4 Bhutan Railway Assessment


Bhutan has no railway system and it is highly unlikely that any railways system would be constructed in Bhutan due to the highly mountainous nature of the topography and instability of the terrain due to frequent mud slides and the risks of earthquakes.

There are proposals to link the Indian railway network from Hasimara to Phuentsholing – a distance of some 17 km – though this is not expected to materialise in the near future.
