The basic rule about what can and can't we do in Bhutan

Face masks are no longer required to be worn at any venue or at any time in Bhutan, except in hospitals and health centres. However, travellers can choose to wear face masks at their convenience should they wish. Also, it may be mandated by the government that face mask needs to be worn in the future if the number of COVID-19 cases go up, therefore it is recommended that guest always travel with a face mask in their luggage as a precaution.

On the 24th of June 2022, the National assembly passed the Tourism Levy Bill of 2022. With this new act, the sustainable development fee (SDF) of 65 USD per night has now been increased to 200 USD per night. Along with the increase in the SDF the minimum daily package rate (MDPR) has been removed as well.

But don't just take our word for it

Here are what our guests say about their Bhutan experience

We embarked on a remarkable 10-day journey in Bhutan with the invaluable assistance of Druk Asia, and our experience was elevated by the exceptional support provided by Sangay Dorji. Sangay's expertise and profound understanding of Bhutan surpassed our expectations as he diligently collaborated with us to craft a meticulously planned itinerary. His insights extended beyond the conventional, enlightening us on aspects we hadn't even considered prior to our adventure.

What an extraordinary trip. I have wanted to visit the himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan for many years. At last I made it there with the help of you and your wonderful team. From beginning to end it was wonderful. I was hoping to visit a land unspoilt by the rigours of the modern world, and the land of the Thunder Dragon did not disappoint. The scenery was awe inspiring from the dramatic himalayan mountains to the lush fertile valleys and everything in between. I loved the woodland hikes in Thimphu and Phobjikha. Truly Shangri-la.
