Bring any required medications, such as sleeping pills (high altitude can make sleeping difficult), anti-nausea pills, anti-diarrhea pills, water purification tablets (if walking), oral rehydration packets, eye drops, antibiotic ointment, and anti-histamine ointment.

Most hotels, the currency exchange counter at Paro International Airport, and the Thimphu branch of the Bhutan National Bank accept US dollars as well as credit cards or cash traveler’s cheques if you plan to make a substantial purchase of things such as textiles or artwork.

Because your vacation to Bhutan is completely paid for, you shouldn’t need much money other than beverages, laundry, souvenirs, and gratuities.

VISA is the most generally recognized credit card.

It is suggested that you carry sufficient of film, memory cards, and batteries, as photo shops in Bhutan do not offer high-quality equipment or supplies.

When moving to higher heights, a shortage of oxygen causes acute mountain sickness. This is most common in those who have not had time to adapt to an altitude of more than 7,000 feet (2,100 m) before participating in strenuous activity. Individual tolerance varies, but symptoms normally manifest within a few hours, with individuals in the low physical condition being the most vulnerable.

Initial symptoms include headache, tiredness, shortness of breath, nausea, and loss of appetite. Sleep deprivation is another common complaint. Thinking and judgment may be compromised in more severe situations. High altitude pulmonary edema, caused by fluid build-up in the lungs, is a rare but potentially lethal condition.
