Anywhere from 10-12 hours

2. How far is Tiger's Nest from Phuentsholing? Any other place of interest?
Tiger's Nest is some 20 kms from Paro, which is 200 kms from Phuntsoling. Paro is a beautiful valley with the National Musuem, Paro Dzong & the Drukyel Dzong which is beyond the Tiger's Nest.

3. Would you happen to the road condition to Tezpur?
All roads leading to Tezpur from Guwahati & Jorhat side are fine.

Yes provided you are lucky enough to navigate the horrendous jams running a KM or so near Dalkola and Kishanganj next to the railway station. ( I had given up almost ..) Thanks to HVK advice on tackling this kind of Jams to reach up to the railway barrier by passing 2 km almost jam at the railway crossing at dalkola. Not only that but at border crossings as well.

After that it was a free spirited run aka @100-120KMPH from Kishanganj all the way down sevoke and to Binagudi .

Sigh feels just like yesterday
