Fequenty Asked Questions (FAQs)

What makes visiting Bhutan tour costly?

 

It's undeniable that traveling to Bhutan tends to be pricier compared to neighboring Nepal and India. This is primarily due to the Bhutanese government's implementation of an all-inclusive nightly tariff structure for all tourists, which can give the impression of higher costs for Bhutan tours. However, having been a tour operator in Bhutan for the past decade, we consistently hear positive feedback from returning clients who attest to the genuine value they receive for their money.

Every visitor to Bhutan is provided with a comprehensive package that includes a private guide, vehicle, driver, as well as covering all meals, accommodation, sightseeing, entry fees, transfers, taxes, Government Royalties, and visa fees. This inclusive approach ensures that travelers experience the full breadth of Bhutan's offerings without worrying about additional expenses cropping up along the way. Despite the initial investment, many find that this all-encompassing package actually represents excellent value for money. Moreover, the unparalleled beauty and cultural richness of Bhutan make it a destination well worth the cost.

Is it possible to explore Bhutan on my own, without relying on guided tours or assistance?

Absolutely not! You cannot obtain an entry visa to Bhutan unless you have pre-arranged a land tour itinerary with a licensed and approved tour operator, and have paid the requisite nightly all-inclusive government tariff. The Bhutanese government restricts independent visitors to uphold its stringent cultural and ecological values. However, once in Bhutan, you can still enjoy a considerable degree of flexibility during hikes, visits to local markets and villages, and interactions with locals. You have the option to arrange your own private tour without joining a group, but it must be prepaid and pre-arranged.

How can I expect the weather to be in Bhutan?

Bhutan, similar to Nepal and various other countries worldwide, is witnessing the effects of climate change. Summers (June to mid-September) tend to be warm, humid, and rainy. Winters (December to early March) are characterized by cold and dry conditions. While winter nights are chilly, the days are typically clear and sunny. The western valleys experience an average of only two snowfalls per year. The wettest period occurs from August to early September.

How can one reach Bhutan?

There are two ways to reach Bhutan: either overland from India or by flight from Nepal, India, or Thailand. The flight from Kathmandu is particularly breathtaking, offering spectacular views of Everest, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and thousands of other Himalayan peaks.

How do I acquire a Bhutan Visa?

At Life Dream Adventure, we assist you with the visa process. Visa applications must be submitted to the Bhutanese government at least one week before your departure. You will receive a paper visa, and upon arrival in Paro, it will be stamped into your passport. To process the visa application, we require a clear scanned copy of your passport.

What is the optimal time to travel to Bhutan?

October to December emerges as the prime time to explore Bhutan, characterized by clear, fresh weather and sunny skies. January and February usher in colder temperatures. From March to May, the climate remains dry and pleasant, with the end of spring marked by spectacular rhododendron blooms, adorning the hills with vibrant colors. May to June sees a slight increase in heat and humidity. Finally, from June to September, the monsoon rains blanket the mountains.

Are there any issues related to altitude in Bhutan?

The majority of visitors to Bhutan do not experience altitude-related issues. Our cultural tour itineraries typically do not exceed altitudes of 3500 meters above sea level. However, if you are engaging in trekking activities in Bhutan, it's important to be mindful of altitude considerations.

What items should I pack for a tour of Bhutan?

The packing list varies depending on the season of travel in Bhutan. For the colder seasons, such as winter, it's advisable to pack warm clothing like down jackets and sweaters. Conversely, for the warmer seasons like summer, lighter materials such as cotton and lightweight woolens are more suitable.

Will there be someone available to pick me up at the airport when I arrive?

Yes, Life Dream Adventure representative will be there to greet you outside of Terminal Hall. He will be displaying you name card. After that you will be transferred to hotel.
