    Getting Into Bhutan

    Getting into Bhutan, a small and secluded country located in the Eastern Himalayas, is a unique experience due to its strict tourism policies and limited accessibility. The government prioritizes preserving its cultural heritage, pristine environment, and Gross National Happiness. As a result, the process for entering Bhutan may be more regulated than in other countries. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you get into Bhutan:

    Plan your visit with a licensed tour operator

    Bhutan requires all tourists to book their trip through a licensed Bhutanese tour operator or their international partners. Independent travel is not allowed. You can find a list of licensed tour operators on the Tourism Council of Bhutan's website.

    Plan an itinerary and pay the daily tariff

    We will help you plan your itinerary. All tourists must pay a daily tariff, which covers accommodation, meals, transportation, a licensed tour guide, and entry fees for tourist sites. The daily tariff is set by the government and varies depending on the season and the size of your travel group.

    Book your flights

    Bhutan's national carrier, Drukair, and Bhutan Airlines operate flights to and from Paro International Airport, the country's only international airport. Flights are available from several cities, including Bangkok, Kathmandu, Singapore, and various cities in India. We will assist you with booking your flights.

    Get travel insurance

    It is highly recommended to obtain travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, as medical facilities in Bhutan may not be as advanced as those in your home country.

    Prepare for altitude

    As Bhutan is located in the Eastern Himalayas, some parts of the country are at high altitudes. If your itinerary includes high-altitude destinations, make sure to acclimatize properly and take the necessary precautions to prevent altitude sickness.
