Cost & Pricing

The Mandated Cost

The government gives more importance to the welfare of it’s people and care for the environment. Thus, the tourism policy is “High Value, Low Impact” and the government has set a mandatory minimum daily tariff , preventing it from being overwhelmed by mass tourism. 35% of the mandatory tariff directly goes to the government and is used for free education and free healthcare.
