HOW TO GET TO BHUTAN
To obtain your tourist visa, you simply have to book through a local tour operator like Bhutan Homestay, approved and licensed by the Tourism Council of Bhutan.
All you have to do is send us an E-MAIL and tell us about your ideas and expectations. We will then sketch a draft with cost calculation. If you are happy with the suggestions and confirm your trip with Bhutan Homestay, we will develop a detailed itinerary together with you, carefully taking into account your desires and interests. We will invoice you for payment based on the tour costing and after the full tour payment is deposited with the Tourism Council, we will process your visa. You can get some ideas about the procedure by browsing through our Website.

Causes can range from heavy rain resulting in landslides, road blocks due to road works, to sudden events in the village homes where you were booked. We ask for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience that will be caused in such a scenario.
We book our guests into fine tourist standard and, on request,high end hotels. Additionally and over the years we have built a large network of farm/homestay-host relations for those of you who are more adventurous and interested in immersing into local culture. You can stay in farm/homestays all over the country. The homes are very diverse and range from previous noble family mansions, refurbished for the purpose of hosting foreign guests to charming and simple farmhouses in remote valleys.
