Reassurance of Your Tour Payments

There are also instances of clients feeling apprehensive about transferring the tour payments in advance. In fact, your bookings are confirmed or visa is issued only upon received of all your tour payments. Without the tour payments, your visa will be not issued at any cost.

However, all the tour payments wire transferred will directly deposit to Tourism Council of Bhutan’s Account in favor the company. Not to the company’s account directly.

The company will receive the payment in our local currency only upon the completion of your tour and provisions of the invoices after deducting the government Sustainable Development Fee and taxes at the sources. Hence it is very safe to wire transfer the payment to Bhutan, provided if it is to the company account and not to the personal account. Never send the payment to personal account.

Your tour payments are very safe and guarantee all the agreed services to you. If there are any problems after remitting the tour payment, you can always write to Tourism Council of Bhutan for solutions at info@tourism.gov.bt or visit at www.tourism.gov.bt. All the tour operators are governed by the regulation of Tourism Council of Bhutan. Tourism Council of Bhutan will deal legally with the defaulters.

Plan Your Bhutan Tours

1. When and how to visit Bhutan?

Choose your traveling date like Arrival/Departure date. You also need to choose entry/depart Bhutan via AIR or LAND.

By Air:

There are flights to destinations that include Bangkok, Delhi, Kolkata, Bagdogra, Bodh Gaya, Dhaka, Kathmandu, Guwahati, Singapore and Mumbai.

Paro airport is daylight restricted, and the flights are totally dependent on the weather. As a result, sometimes flights are delayed. It is therefore a good idea to keep at least 24 hours of transit time for connecting flights out of Paro. You might also want to consider traveling on a non-restricted ticket so that if you miss a connecting flight, you can be rerouted or seated on the first available carrier.

Sometimes flights into Paro are disrupted because of unfavorable weather conditions. If this occurs, the flight will stop for the night at the transit airport. To be prepared, you may want to carry your essential personal items in your carry-on luggage.

By Land:

Phuentsholing, Gelephu and Samdrup Jongkhar are the only land border areas open to tourists. The town of Phuentsholing in southwest is located approximately 170 km east of the Indian national airport at Bagdogra. After crossing Phuentsholing, you begin your journey to Thimphu, the capital city with travel time of about six hours for the 170 km stretch.

Gelephu in south-central Bhutan is another entry point to Bhutan. It is approximately 250 kms from Thimphu and the journey will take you through the sub-tropical areas of Bhutan before entering the alpine zone and then finally into Thimphu. One will have to traverse across three districts and the travel time will be about ten hours.

The district of Samdrup Jongkhar in southeast Bhutan borders the Indian district of Darranga, Assam and is approximately 150 kms away from Guwahati, the capital city of Assam. The journey from Guwahati is about three hours. Tourists entering Bhutan through Samdrup Jongkhar will take you to Trashigang, and from there over the lateral route to Monggar, Bumthang, Trongsa, Wangdue Phodrang and then finally into capital, Thimphu. The distance is about 700 kms and will take you a minimum of three days to reach Thimphu.
