How to get to Bhutan?

Travelers to Bhutan have two ways to get into the country. They can either book a flight from one of the five countries that are served by the Bhutanese airlines or travel by land.


After June 2022, the government has increased the Sustainable Development Fee (SDF) of USD65 per person per night per tourist to USD200, which will go towards activities that promote carbon-neutral tourism and building a more sustainable tourism sector. This includes offsetting the carbon footprint of tourists and upskilling workers in the sector.

The Package Rate that will be provided by us will be exclusive of the SDF and will be charged based on your customized needs. Please contact us for further details
