As per the Tourism Council of Bhutan, tourists travelling in a group of two (2) persons or less are subject to a surcharge -USD 40/30 per day, in addition to the minimum daily package rates – USD 250/200 per day.
Our set departure packages are especially designed to offer an alternate option to our clients with a budget constraint and a perfect solution to skip this additional surcharge. You can enjoy the cost savings from travelling in larger groups when opting for set departure tours.
The groups can vary from 3 – 16 persons. There are no differences in amenities other than having to travel with new friends. We are now in the process of adding at least one set departure trip for every month of the year.
Recommendation: If you have flexibility with your travel dates we recommend to join our set departure tours during low season (December, January, February, June, July and August). You will be able to save both on surcharges and the lower seasonal tariffs.
