Tourist tariffs and discounts are regulated by the Royal Government of Bhutan and are applicable per person per night halt within Bhutan. Tour operators are strictly guided and monitored by the Government to ensure that the national policy of “High value, Low Impact” is effectively followed and implemented. There is no restriction on the number of visitors as misunderstood by many travel enthusiasts around the world. However, there is an all-inclusive minimum daily tariff fixed by the government for all tour packages as listed below:
On the day of your departure, our service obligation is to provide only breakfast and transportation to the airport.
(The Base Price will be the cost for a single person traveling solo)
We offer the following discounts which are automatically applied depending on your group size.
Important Note: CHILDREN below 5 years of age will not be eligible for GROUP SIZE DISCOUNT. STUDENTS below the age of 18 years and CHILDREN must be accompanied by at least one adult traveler to avail discounts. Discounts cannot be applied to surcharges, fees and single supplements.
We strongly recommend reviewing our cancellation and refund schedule below to avoid any confusion should you decide to cancel your reserved trip. All your deposits and any payment less administrative fees of US$100 per person will be refunded if you notify us at least 30 days prior to your arrival date.

In the case of trekking, no refund is permitted if the trek could not be completed due to inclement weather conditions or illness. However, accommodation and meals will be provided as required under the minimum daily tariff.
In case the trip is cut short or duration lost due to unforeseen reasons after arrival in Bhutan, no refund is available as the payment would have been already made to hotels and other logistics.
There shall be no charges for the number of days of delay either during arrivals or departures or both, due to weather conditions, communication problems, cancellation or delay in Bhutanese airline flights, sickness or any other legitimate reason as Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB) may deem reasonable. However, the Tourist will be charged on the actual expenses on accommodation, food, transport and any other services provided.
It is mandatory that all tourists visit Bhutan through government licensed local tour operators after paying a visa fee of US$40 and the cost of the trip, a minimum daily tariff which is set and regulated by the Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB).
We offer two options to make the payment; either pay online using your credit/debit card or wire the payment to our bank account. For more details, please check https://www.bhutanacorn.com/paying-the-cost-of-the-trip/.
