Bhutan is very cautious of opening its doors to tourism since mass tourism has overrun the regional countries. Therefore, Bhutan rather follows a policy called “Low Volume, High Value” tourism where a standard set price is charge per night halt in Bhutan. As one journalist visiting Bhutan said “Bhutan doesn’t want to see tourists as plunderers but contributors to the country”, tourists tariff in Bhutan is on the higher side.

Travel to Bhutan is only possible with a pre-planned, pre-paid tour booked through a licensed tour operator in Bhutan like Alpine Bhutan Travel Service. However, you can decide on what you want to see and when you want to see it. We can tailor a tour plan to suit your individual needs.
