Program / reservation

Early reservation is advisable to secure flight bookings or hotel rooms. Booking arrangements must be completed 6 weeks in advance, but for cultural tours during festivals, arrangements must be completed 8 weeks in advance. The spring and autumn festivals are our peak times for tourism, and without early reservations it can be difficult to confirm flights and hotels. For trekking groups, booking arrangements should be completed at least 8 weeks in advance, as this activity requires detailed forward planning.

We will design Bhutan private itinerary, suggest you overnight stay and places to be visited within your time frame. We need your feedback on places to be visited and interest on Bhutan to be executed in the final itinerary for your Bhutan program.
