The monopoly pricing policy of BUTAN
make the cost of travel extremely high.
Great destination with state-controlled excursion cost
with the ultimate goal of minimizing tourists in Bhutan.
Deterrent trip due to the high cost of the trip. The best time for this trip is mainly in the autumn when temperatures are good and favorable for travelers.
