Planning on visiting Bhutan for your next holiday? If you are not a citizen of India, Bangladesh or Maldives, things aren’t as simple and booking your flight, hotel and applying for a visa.
Firstly, you can only visit Bhutan through a Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB) licensed tour operator. You will need to contact a tour operator to plan and discuss your tour itinerary. Good thing there are hundreds of tour operators to choose from. Once you have decided on your itinerary , you will be given a price quote by the tour operator. The price will take into account the minimum daily tariff set by the TCB (US$ 200 for off-peak season and US$250 for peak season, per person per day).
Although the minimum daily tariff seem straight forward, there are a lot of other factors such as surcharges, group discounts, duration discounts, child discounts, student discounts, visa waiver, etc that may change the final price.
To make it easier for visitors and tour operators alike, we have made a tool to calculate the tour cost when visiting Bhutan.
