Bhutan travel visas are limited each year to protect the country's natural resources and cultural sustainable development. Therefore tour packages are the preferred means for foreign visitors to enjoy the depth of culture and Vajrayana Buddhist heritage that this unique Himalayan kingdom preserves so carefully.

The Sustainable Development Fund is a government tax on foreign travellers visiting Bhutan charged for each day within the country. Funds are applied to heritage and cultural presercation.
