Bhutan is best known to
the world today as the last Shangrila. The few
visitors who make the rare journey into this
extraordinary kingdom will discover that there is no
other destination like this land of pure and exotic
mysticism. In this country known as Druk Yul, or the
‘Land of the Peaceful Dragon’, the fortunate visitor
will find a rare combination of harmony and accord,
amidst a landscape of incredible natural beauty.
The Royal Government of Bhutan recognizes that
tourism is a world-wide phenomenon and an important
means of achieving socioeconomic development
particularly for developing countries like Bhutan.
It also recognizes that tourism, in affording the
opportunity to travel, can help in promoting
understanding among peoples and building closer ties
of friendship based on appreciation and respect for
different cultures and lifestyles.
Towards achieving this objective, the Royal
Government, since inception of tourism in the year
1974, has adopted a very cautious approach to growth
and development of the tourism.. The Bhutanese
tourism industry is based on principle of
sustainability that is ‘tourism must be
environmentally and ecologically friendly, socially
and culturally acceptable and economically viable’.
As per Royal Government of Bhutan tourism policy,
all tours to the country are in form of pre-planned,
prepaid guided package tours for which tariff is set
by the Government. Independent travel is not
possible and tours need to be booked in advance
through local Bhutanese tour operator like us and we
take care of all travel arrangements like hotel,
transport, guide, and visa. However, there is no
restriction on number of persons travelling and even
single person is welcomed.
