Bhutan tourist tariff is fixed by the Royal Government of Bhutan and its mandatory for all tour operators in Bhutan to charge the minimum rates fixed by the Government of Bhutan. At no point can a tour operator legally lower the rate fixed by the Government of Bhutan. It is the daily rate that a tourist must pay for the services given to them. The rate might look little high but actually with everything included in the tour package and with the additional Bhutan Government royalty included, its a very reasonable price. This daily tour package rate or the minimum daily rate payable by tourists for visiting Bhutan cannot in any way be fixed by individual tour operators in Bhutan.

This Bhutan tourist tariff or the daily tour package rates do not entitle four or five star hotels. If you opt for five star accommodation you will have to pay extra for these hotels.
Usually almost 35% of what you pay goes directly to Government coffers as royalty. Bhutan being a landlocked country with very little natural resources we are heavily dependent on tourist money for the socio-economic development of our country. All schools and hospitals run on the revenue generated through tourism and hydro power in the country.
