Beware, you'll have to pay 100$ per day , so a visit to Bhutan is only for the weatlthy. Kudos to them if it allows them to avoid mass tourism and its nuisances!

I thought it was actually $250 per day ($200 per day for the low season), but that includes guide, land transport, meals and three-star accommodation. While it is obviously not cheap, I guess compare it to an all-inclusive resort. At least it's not $250/$200 per day in addition to your food/transport/hotels/guides.

I knew a former coworker from Antarctica that went to Bhutan, I think for 5 days, this was back in March 2010 I believe, after she finished her Antarctic summer contract, I don't remember the company she went with, but she did enjoy/love the experience. It's one of those bucket list places.

It is actually $250 per night. Airfare is not included and can be very expensive.

Obviously airfare wouldn't be included, and yes it can be expensive to get there, but that depends on where you are starting from. My former coworker from Antarctica was able to fly from Australia, so it wasn't too bad.

When you work in the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) and work in either McMurdo or South Pole you fly from LAX to Australia, then onto New Zealand, from there you fly to the Ice. When you're done with your Ice contract, they fly you back home for free, but you can get a layover in either Australia or New Zealand for a few months, so she just bought her own ticket from Australia to Bhutan via India, I believe.

I'm flying to Bhutan in just over a week, and have used a company called Blue Poppies. So far they've been very good to deal with, emails answered promptly and knowledgeably . I wont know much more until I'm on the ground but the reviews of them have been decent and so far so good.

Just be prepared Bhutan is not the pure "paradise" many expect it to be. Just like in other places, the tourist industry there is very greedy and cares about nothing but money. Don't assume everyone is decent and honest.
