IMG_1936BHUTAN: Facts for the traveler

Visas: Your visa will be stamped at your arrival at the airport. Your tour agency will be in charge of the application. They will send you a copy that you will present to immigration upon your arrival
How to get there: Druk Air –which is actually very good – is the only airline that flies to and from Bhutan. There are flights from Nepal (Kathmandu), Bangladesh (Dakar), India (Delhi and Kolkata) and Thailand (Bangkok).
Money: There is a fixed rate starting 200US$ per day, and this includes accommodation, meals, transportation, guide, and driver. Although it may sound like a lot of money for an independent traveler, it is really a good deal. Also, 30% of the money is used for development projects in Bhutan.
Tour agency: Bridge to Bhutan. I am not font of tour agencies, but I have to say that I was thrilled with this tour company. It is run by two Bhutanese brothers, who have studied abroad and speak English fluently. You just need to tell them your needs and interests, and they will tailor a special itinerary to make sure you get the most of your visit to Bhutan. The service was impeccable. The accommodation, food, and transportation were excellent. My guide was more than a just a person who took me from site to site; he was the perfect host! Not only did he speak perfect English, he had a vast knowledge of the country and the sights. I strongly recommend Bridge to Bhutan for an unforgettable experience, and deep understanding of the Bhutanese culture.

Tour Company Website: http://bridgetobhutan.bt
Contacts: Lotay Rinchen (lotayrinchen@gmail.com) or Phuntsho (Fin) Norbu (finxon@gmail.com )

Where to stay:
o Paro: Tashi Namgay Resort
o Thimphu: Pamtsho Guesthouse
o Punakha Valley: Dragon’s Nest Resort

Special Recommendations:
o You don’t have anything to worry about when you are in Bhutan. You will be treated like a VIP guest and all what you need is included in the price of your tour.
o I would strongly recommend staying at least 10 days in Bhutan, and adding a trek in your itinerary.

  1. i am a Bhutanese currently studying in Australia…thank you for your wonderful comments for Bhutan….thank you especially for the details about the tourist tariff rate…most of the tourist are of the notion that they would have to pay extra for accommodation, fooding stufs like that….thank you..

    I also want to add upon you remarks that if you have a friend in Bhutan who have lived outside Bhutan for more than a year…than he/she might be able to invite 2 person in a year without having to pay the tourist rates….just around $60 for visa…so go find ur self a Bhutanese friend if you wanna visit….just kidding…cheers..

  2. I really enjoyed my visit to Bhutan. It is an extraordinary country. I hope more people visit and experience its wonders. Thanks for the info. I am sure it would be helpful for fellow travelers =)
