It is constantly advisable to reserve your tour several months in advance to assure efficient preparation for both travel agent and visitors. Tourism in Bhutan is relatively untried and the tourist infrastructure is still to be bloomed and is still confined. Moreover, the flights coming in and proscribed in our land are somewhat limited especially during peak seasons can be rather fussy. Hence, it is always safer if your booking is done in advance.

Delay Arrivals

There is no charge for delays in arrival and departure because of weather conditions disrupting flights or road blocks. The tourist must, however bear the cost of food, accommodation, transportation, and other services required.

It is highly recommended that you purchase travel insurance prior to travel from the insurance company in Bhutan.

Payment shortfalls

This is for the guests who wish to send currency other than US$, if there is any payment shortfall due to intermediary banks deduct charges en route or because your bank will work out the other currency equivalent of the dollar amount on sending, but the money is converted on arrival in Bhutan at the prevailing dollar rate, this may create some different. Therefore, if there is any shortfall we will confirm you the exact amount received and also request you to make up for the shortfall in US$ cash on arrival.

Security

There is a security after your trip payment is made to us because the TCB (Tourism Council of Bhutan) will hold the money which you have sent for your tour until your trip has taken place in Bhutan. The Money will not be released to BhutanYoedzer Travel until you have left the country on your return flight. This ensures you with the security of your money and it is safe until your Bhutan tour takes place. On the other hand, if for any reason the trip doesn’t take place, then the government will not give your money to our company instead return but that is all subject to any cancellation charges.

Accommodation and food in Bhutan

The food and accommodation for tourists visiting in Bhutan especially places like Thimphu, Paro, Punakha, Bumthang is normally conformable and spacious and most of the hotels are tourist standard one. Hotels have rooms with private bathrooms, hot water, stream bathes, telephone connections, internet and electricity. However, if you travel towards the east, hotels have not as spacious as like above places offer but can be fairly basic.

Moreover, if you want to stay in a luxury type hotels in Bhutan (5 star hotels), we have hotels like Taj Tashi in Thimphu, Amankora( in Paro, Ounakha, Thimphu, Gangtey and Bumthang), Uma in Paro and Punakha, Hotle Zhiwaling in Paro. All offer something quite different from any local accommodation – but definitely one must be prepared to pay for the privilege.

Tourist hotels throughout the country tend to provide meals buffet-style, which gives you the opportunity to try a variety of Bhutanese dishes. Many restaurants, especially in Thimphu and Paro, also offer Chinese, Thai, Indian or Nepalese dishes other than Bhutanese dishes.

You can also try local food if you wish and ask to your guide to take you to a local restaurant, or to be served the food that is served to guides and drivers when you stop on the road. As you go further east you should be prepared for less choice and variety, but just see it as a chance to sample the local cuisine and enjoy with it.

Tashi Delak!
