No Royalty of $65 in Eastern Region : Mongar, Trashigang, Trashiyangtse, Lhuentse, Samdrup Jongkhar and Pemagatshel
Eastern Bhutanese, called Sharchops,is one of the least explored regions of the kingdom and offers one of most authentic experiences for adventure-oriented tourists. The entire region is awash in unspoiled natural beauty, towering cliffs and pristine forests with great variations in altitude and climatic conditions.
in order to promote tourism in the east, the government is set to waive off the daily royalty of USD 65 a day for the tourist during their stay in the eastern dzongkhags / Districts. The royalty, now known as sustainable development fee, is levied in addition to the minimum daily tariff of USD 200 during lean season and USD 250 during the peak season. The royalty exemption will be valid for three years until December 2020.
