Frequently asked questions about this trip

Can I visit Bhutan myself?

No, you can only tour Bhutan through a licensed tour agency that must be registered with the Bhutan Tourism Council. All tourists visiting Bhutan must book a trip to Bhutan through a tour operator such as Odyssey Treks.

How and where to apply for a Bhutan visa?

Tourists are not allowed to apply for their own visas and visa application services are not available at Bhutanese embassies. So, you can apply for a Bhutanese visa only through the official and registered travel agent and Odyssey Treks will handle the whole process for you.

Is altitude sickness common in Bhutan?
