Bhutan charges a minimum $200 per person, per night in the winter months and $250 during the summer month. Sounds expensive right! Yet, the tourism authority of the country claims to provide a free trip across the country at this rate! Doesn’t it sound somewhat like the term – oxymoron? Well initially, even I thought so, but when I scratched the outer layer, what I found was actually priceless. Let me show you how…
Bhutan is known for its culture to preserve nature in the most pristine form. The government levies the said amount from the tourists to preserve the sanctity of the environment and keep it absolutely unadulterated. Bhutan is the only country in the entire world that makes it be their national priority to preserve nature and environment to its best. Apart from this, they use a majority of the revenue earned from tourism to provide free education, developmental activities and poverty elevation.
