Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions about Bhutan and our tours to Bhutan.

Q. Do I need insurance for this tour?

A. We highly recommend evacuation insurance for this and all WanderTours. World Nomads is our recommended insurance. They have a wide range of options, good customer service, an easy to navigate website and they offer numerous affordable options including travel, medical and evacuation insurance.

Q. Do you know if I can bring hiking poles in my carry-on bag?

A. It seems as though security at the airport does not like hiking poles in your carry-on. We do know people who have been able to bring them through with no problem but you may not want to risk it. Even though we do not recommend checking bags, if you’re going to bring poles, this may be your only option.

Q. Do I need a walking stick?

A. It depends on your athleticism and your balance.

Usually only those on the treks have a need for walking sticks but you might decide you want one for the day hikes. If you’re in generally good shape, one would be good but we could always find you a sturdy stick along the way. There’s usually a man at the base of the Tiger’s Nest hike that “rents” them and sometimes the hotels have them.

If you’re relatively steady and have good walking shoes, you may not need to bring one or two walking sticks with you.

Q. I was wondering if there is a need for altitude or malaria meds? I’m assuming that we will be at an altitude over 8,000 feet for a short enough period that it won’t be a problem but just wanted to ask and make sure.

A. We’re not comfortable with making a suggestion on what meds you might bring. However, on occasion people have had an issue with the altitude but it’s such a personal thing that it’s hard to tell who it’s going to be a problem for.

We suggest chatting with your doctor on both of these issues.

Q. For the treks over multiple days, I’m trying to keep my day pack as small as possible. I have room for water, snacks and jacket in my camera backpack, but will I need room for my lunch?

A. On the treks, lunch will be carried by the porters, so you don’t need to worry about that. Just a daybag with your personal items and perhaps some snacks like protein bars.

Q. I was thinking of buying a digital book reader for the trip, can you recommend one?

A. It seems that both the Kindle and the Barnes and Noble Nook are popular options. Both are pretty user-friendly. The Kindle is easier when it comes to downloading books.

The Sony eReader is another option.

Q. How should I dress based on the weather in the spring or fall?

A. You might consider either a fleece and/or light rain jacket for your outer layer. Then a button up shirt underneath and a t-shirt as a bottom layer.

Evenings will be cool – possibly freezing – and days will can get up to the low 70′s if it’s sunny.

Q. Will I be able to take a yoga class?

A. Depending on the tour, there may be the opportunity to take a yoga class.

Q. Will the hotels have a laundry service so that I can pack light?

A. They definitely have laundry service at a reasonable rate. You’ll want to consider having it done at one of the hotels where the group is staying for more than one night as it will be difficult for your clothes to dry in that climate. Also, be sure that you bring quick-drying clothes made for this purpose.

Q. When I arrive in Bangkok (or Delhi) before the tour, do you think a print-out of the hotel’s name and address, in English, will be sufficient for the taxi driver?

A. In all likelihood the taxi driver will speak English and he’ll understand but having it on paper is a great idea.

Q. Are there hair dryers at the hotels?

A. Sometimes but don’t count on it. As mentioned above, there will be power at all hotels. Just remember that no one’s going to be looking their finest, so if you don’t have to have the hair dryer, consider leaving it at home

Q. Will I need a swimsuit?

A. No swimsuit for Bhutan but your hotel in Bangkok or Delhi might have a small pool – check their website (and the weather) to determine whether you should bring a swimsuit.

Q. Can I wear shorts?

A. It’s not recommended to wear them in Bhutan as it’s disrespectful to the locals. You definitely can’t wear them to the monasteries. Capris are preferable and we’ve even heard that some guides bristle at these when going to a festival or monastery.

Q. Do I need any dressy clothes?

A. Nope.

Q. What kind of shoes should I hike in?

A. It depends on how much ankle support you need. Hiking boots may not be necessary, unless you are doing one of the treks. Consider light hikers or even something like Keen or Teva sandals that have a grip on the bottom.

Q. I have been researching new luggage and took to heart your message of going LIGHT.  With the caveat to go light not matter what, I’m looking at carry-on wheeled options. Is it safe to assume we are going to be responsible for moving our luggage around every day, and also that in Bhutan we may be needing to pick it up more than wheel it, due to fairly uneven and unpaved terrain?

A. You’ll have very little interaction with your luggage as the guides and hotel staff help with moving it from the van/bus to your room. You might consider a small rolly bag that is carry-on size (under 22″).

Q. Do you recommend taking a drivers license with you on trips where you aren’t planning on driving? Or just rely on your passport, or get an International Drivers License as another form of ID?

A. You definitely won’t need your drivers license but if you feel more comfortable carrying it, by all means, do. Your passport is really the most important ID you’ll need.

Q. Will we be restricted to only one bottle of water a day, or can we assume we can have as much as we like for drinking, brushing teeth, etc. 

A. Oh – they will ply you with tons of water. You’ll need it for the altitude. There’ll be more than enough.

Q. Will you be sending an updated itinerary with our overnight accommodations so we can leave it with folks at home?

A. You’ll receive the hotel information 1 or 2 weeks before departure.

Q. Will we have internet access?

A. As of 2012, hotels are now required to provide either WiFi service or computers to guests. Sometimes the service is free, sometimes it’s not. Note that some computers can very extremely slow, infected with a virus or just not working. Having said that, it’s likely that you’ll have access to the internet in most locations (except when trekking) but know that there will be times when it goes down in the whole country.

Q. What about gifts and tips for the guides?

A. We recommended about $5-10/day for the guide and $3-5/day for the driver(s). Your tour leader will collect all the tips (US dollars are preferred) and put them in one envelope so they are given as one tip.

You will likely have a dinner at the end of the trip when it will be appropriate to give a gift to your guides. We recommend something from your home town. Gifts that people have given on previous tours range from Maple Candy from Vermont, baseball caps and shirts from the NY Mets and vacuum-packed salmon from Seattle. These are meant to be small gifts of appreciation so please don’t spend a bundle on these.

Q. Do you recommend bringing small gifts for the children we will encounter?

A. No, it’s best not to bring gifts such as candy, chocolate etc. If you want to interact with the children you could consider bringing a bottle of bubble liquid and you can entertain them by blowing bubbles for them. Remember to put in your checked luggage, though.

Q. What’s the emergency contact info that I can give my family?

A. You will be given a cell phone number for your guide, the hotels and your tour leader. All of this will be provide shortly before departure.
