What does the minimum tariff mean?
The minimum tariff is a tourism regulation established by the Royal Government of Bhutan. To promote quality, sustainable tourism with little negative impact, all tourists visiting the country will be charged an all-inclusive daily rate. The daily rate is $ 250 per person per night during high season (March, April, May, September, October and November) and $ 200 per person per night during low season (Dec, Jan, Feb, April, July, August) ,
When is the best time to visit Bhutan?
Most tourists travel to Bhutan in the spring months of March, April and May, and in the fall months of September, October and November, during which many large festivals are celebrated. Therefore, these months are considered peak season and a daily rate of $ 250 per person per night will be charged. However, if you are not particularly interested in the festivals, we recommend that you plan your trip during the off-season. The minimum daily rate is then only US $ 200 per person per night.
