Bhutan is ideal for year-round travel and provides something different to visitors depending on the season. Bhutan is best visited during the spring months of October to December and February to April when the valleys bloom with flowers. Its vibrant blue sky and flowering flora and fauna, or amazing snowfall are indeed reasons to travel. Bhutan assures that you have a wonderful time surrounded by nature and all of its lovely creatures and that you bring back a memory that you will cherish.

Accommodation And Food

There are standard hotel facilities in Bhutan. However, you will have respectable accommodation and food services. There are various ethnic foods to try in Bhutan. Rice is the mainstay of most Bhutanese meals.  It is served with one or two meat or vegetable side dishes. Pork, beef, and chicken are the most renowned meats.  Popular vegetables include spinach, pumpkins, turnips, radishes, tomatoes, river weed, onions, and green beans. Rice, buckwheat, and barley are also grown in different parts of the country based on their climate.

Homegrown foods such as Ema Datshi, Momos, Phaksana Paa, Jasha Maru, etc., are served for your different experiences during the trip to Bhutan. 

Bhutan Entry Permit Fees

Bhutan is a relatively more expensive country than Nepal. The services and amenities given are expensive, and the entry permit fees are also expensive. 

The Winter season(Dec-Feb) and Monsoon( Jun- Aug) are considered the low season due to the low arrival of foreigners. The permit during this season is a bit cheaper standing at $200 per day for each foreigner visiting. But in the high seasons like Autumn(September- October) and Spring(March-May), a visitor has to pay $250 per day for entry fees. Solo travelers have to pay as much as $290 per day. So, it is recommended to travel in groups where you can be benefitted from discounts. 

For individuals traveling from India, the Maldives, or Bangladesh, the hefty prices are not necessary. These citizens might expect to pay as little as $25 per person per day.

Despite the high prices, you will get tour guides, basic accommodation, food service, travel royalty fees, and more that will be subsidized for you from the permit. These services will not apply to Indians, Bangladeshi and Maldivian tourists.


  • Bhutan is comparatively pricey because the fees cover a variety of expenses. The daily rate includes everything from standard lodging and meals to internal taxes and tourism royalty fees.

    Fantastic Everest trek and visit of Bhutan

    First, how to choose a company, out of hundreds? We wanted a trekking experience and a tour to Bhutan. We contacted about 10 companies and in the end Nepal Nirvana Trails became our choice, why? Some companies didn’t respond, others didn’t answered our questions properly etc. KP at Nepal Nirvana Trails always answered within hours and gave comprehensive answers.He also included, air tickets, Visa costs etc in the package price. This made us choose Nirvana for our trip to Nepal/ Bhutan. During the Trekking trip Jami Rai was our guide and we were very happy with him, he arranged extras for us, like free hot showers, free charging etc, in the end we felt that we got more than expected. A trip to Bhutan is little bit different, the Nepal company buy a package from Bhutan so they have no influence over who will become your guide or driver, but they book air tickets and arrange with the Bhutan Visa. We were lucky and had a very knowledgeable guide (Mr Karma). KP also included all airport transports (total 6) and the hotel (Kathmandu Guest House) in our package. Kathmandu Guest House is very nice with a nice and tranquil garden/ yard in the middle of Kathmandu and also 50 meters from Nepal Nirvana Trails office, perfect. KP also offered us a nice dinner including food and drinks, very nice gesture. We can really recommend this family run company and we will use them at our next visit to Nepal.

    Dear Hans, Namaste!
    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for the Everest Panorama Trek and the 4N 5d Bhutan Tour. We’re very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the trek with our Guide, Jami at the Everest Trek and Karma at the Bhutan Tour. We appreciate your recommendation to book a trip with us, and we hope many more people will have an equally positive experience! Wish to see you again for trekking in other regions of Nepal.
    Best Regards,
    Kp Dhital and Nepal Nirvana Trails Team.
