Getting into Bhutan is not easy but this simply adds to its charm, and keeps out the masses. The kingdom operates a ‘low volume, high quality’ policy as part of the aim to modernise and change slowly while continuing to protect the culture and environment.
There are only five airports from which you can fly into the country; you're obliged to use Druk Air, the national carrier which has a monopoly on all flights and a rather irregular schedule; you can't travel alone; and you must have a prepaid itinerary, which includes a daily tourist tariff and government development royalty. A visa is required and is issued in advance but is only authorised once you have booked and paid for your holiday in full.
We will deal with all of these issues for you, so let us know what type of things you would like to do and how long you would like to stay in Bhutan and we’ll take care of the rest.
