Bhutan Minimum Daily Tour Tariff Increasing January 1, 2012

Jump to last reply

As some of you know, I've been working on a Himalayan adventure for October 2012. Originally I was considering Sikkim (India) but my wife Jeane has been prodding me to look again at Bhutan. So I re-read Robbietravels' awesome trip report over the weekend and am now seriously researching Bhutan.

Unfortunately I just learned that on the first of next year, the per person daily minimum is increasing from $200 to $250 (+$30 per person surcharge for 2 travelers). While I don't think that will hold us back, I wish our timing had been better. I guess I am just going to have to accept that the price of EVERYTHING goes up eventually. Anyway, we are looking at an 11 nights with Snow White Tours which will include a couple of festivals. The more I learn about Bhutan, the more pumped I get about this trip. Needless to say, Jeane is excited too...

As for Sikkim, it will have to wait. Perhaps as a result of the recent earthquake, it will be better to allow some time for things to return to normal...
