    Important Notes

    Some important things to know before you go
    • Visa & Passport Information

      All foreign nationals are required to obtain a visa in order to enter Bhutan. A Bhutanese Visa must be obtained prior to your arrival i.e. before entering in Bhutan because Druk Air allows boarding only after your visa clearance from Bhutan government. Since, no embassy abroad or foreign mission can grant a tourist visa, your visa needs to be processed by local tour operator, thus we will be assisting you to obtain tourist visa. Your passport must be at least 6 months valid after you leave Bhutan. Please send us a copy of your passport in order for us proceed to apply for the visa. Also, bring at least 3 recent passport photos (for your Bhutan Visa, Entry permit, etc.)

    • When is the best time to visit Bhutan for hiking and sightseeing?

      Spring and Autumn are the most popular time to visit Bhutan. During Spring, one can experience cultural Bhutanese festivals, especially during April and May. It is also warmer and skies are clearer for amazing sightseeing tour. The climate is also favorable during Autumn (September and October) for a perfect hiking holiday exploring ancient fortress of Bhutan.

    • Is it possible to travel Bhutan during Summer and Winter?

      Yes, of course you can visit Bhutan during Summer/Monsoon (June to August) and Winter (December to February). You can enjoy the hiking tour with less crowd but the climatic conditions are not quite favorable during these seasons. Summer and Monsoon will be wet and the winter has very cold weather, thus you may not experience the best holidays in Bhutan during these seasons.

    • What are the documents that I need take with me to Bhutan?

      Visa confirmation letter is the first important document, so keep it with you all the time and make a copy of it too. We shall help in your visa processing for Bhutan prior to the start of your trip.

      Yes, definitely. We can arrange you a private tour too as per your demand and flexibility but under Bhutanese state laws.

    • What shall I eat on Bhutan tour with day hikes?

      Meals are included on your trip cost. You can enjoy a
      variety of exotic food in the land of Thunder Dragon. Hotels serve Indian,

      will be served in all the meals. You may ask the hotel/restaurant for better
      suggestions regarding seasonal food.

    • What are the provisions for drinking water on the trip?

      It is better to purchase mineral water which is readily
      available all along the Bhutan tour. Choose the recognized brand rather than
      the local brands and avoid the tap water which is not quite safe.

    • Can there be altitude sickness on Bhutan tour?

      Many people do not have altitude sickness problem though the
      altitude in Bhutan is higher. But this may be a problem to few ones. Altitude
      sickness can be avoided if you make some preparations before you arrive in
      Bhutan. Being physically fit and in good shape helps a lot. It is also advised
      that you consult your local doctor regarding AMS and medicines in case of
      emergencies.
