You are able to probe into primitive Himalayan scenery, featured traditional architectures, antique Buddhist sites, happiest local people, spectacular festivals, etc.

1. Tourists have to visit Bhutan with a guided tour and only the licensed travel agency (like us) approved by Bhutan Tourism Council can apply for the visa for tourists. But it doesn't mean the lessening of flexibility of your trip. You can still choose the places to go, pace of itinerary, types of hotels, tour guide, restaurants.
2. In order to protect Bhutan's original heritages and control number of tourists, Bhutan government operates a strict "high value, low impact" policy that each traveler has to pay a minimum charge (Daily Fee) of USD250 in peak season and USD200 in off season per day. This charge would cover most expenses in your Bhutan trip, such as hotel, food, tour guide, transfer, etc. As a good result, you don't have to worry about your Bhutan vacation being distroyed by bustle and hustle and low quality of hotels, food, transfer and other tour services.
