Travelling Tips

Here are some precautions that you have to take whenever you are planning to visit there.

  • Do not use local tap water. Use packaged mineral water, which is easily available in Bhutan.
  • The roads upto the high altitude is tortuous and treacherous, so make sure to take some medicine with you.
  • If you have any lung diseases such as asthma, it is advisable to talk to your doctor before travelling in the high altitude area, especially Punakha, Bumthang and Wangdi.
  • If you have high blood pressure, heart ailment or your age is greater than 60, contact your Doctor before coming to Bhutan. The doctor may/ may not approve your tour.

Bhutan is a sacred place for Buddhist people. So there are certain things you have to do or don’t have to do.

  • You can take picture of the courtyard infront of dzong and monasteries but you cannot click a single picture inside of the buildings to maintain peaceful and serene atmosphere.
  • Shorts or tank tops are a strict NO in the dzong, chorten and other religious places. You have to wear temple socks before going the sacred places and collared shirt in ParoDzong.
  • If you are a chain smoker, be prepared to pay more. You have to declare it in the airport, pay 200% tax on cigarettes and get a permit from the authority. If visitor is found to smoke without permit, it will consider illegal and additional action would be taken for him/her.
  • Smoking in a public area is strictly prohibited. To smoke with permit, you have to go to the designated places only meant for smoking. Smoking in a public area is strictly prohibited.

Do not argue with the authorities over the rules. As a sincere tourist you have to follow their rules.
