Our pricing module is 100% transparent,meaning that our trips are always at the government mandated minimum daily rate - no added premiums or hidden fees. Because you shouldn’t pay more for the same service.
All travelers must pay the government mandated minimum daily rate. The minimum rate ensures Bhutan’s policy of “high value, low impact tourism;” Bhutan is committed to preserving its culture and pristine environment. The rate includes a government mandated royalty (which goes towards health care, education and other welfare programs for Bhutanese), 3-star accommodations, meals, guides, and in-country transportation.
For a standard-level trip during peak season, international agencies charge an average of $635 per day; we charge $250 per day.
When adding items to your itinerary that require an additional fee, local agencies almost always add excessive premiums for arranging the request - these hidden fees are added by the local agencies when they purchase your airline ticket to Bhutan, upgrade to luxury hotels, and add activities like hot stone baths, water rafting, fishing, horseback riding, biking, etc. MyBhutan works directly with the provider for each specific service type across all districts, to assure that you are only paying for your added service and nothing else.
With no extra charge to you, every trip bought is a donation to the Bhutanese nonprofit, The Tarayana Foundation. A portion of all our profits goes to supporting their efforts in helping to empower rural communities in Bhutan.
Our team has traveled from Bhutan’s busiest cities to its most remote villages to collect more content on local businesses than any other party. We aim to support these locals because we believe in community based tourism.
