Best Time to Visit

March to May Spring is the favourite time to visit Bhutan. Nature lovers who are keen on local flora should consider visiting Bhutan end of April or in May. Flowers would be in full bloom then.

Moderate Month

September to November Fall is another high and crowded season. Though Bhutan does not offer browning forest nor Maples, the mild weather in autumn makes it a perfect time to visit Bhutan.

Other Suitable Months

June to August and December to February If you like to avoid the higher tariff and the cold of winter, consider visiting Bhutan early June. Monsoon will be in its earnest in July. To catch Himalayan blue sky without paying the additional tariff, consider visiting in December. The temperature will not be too cold yet as lowest temperature usually takes places near the end of January. In January or February, Paro and Thimphu may experience a one-day snow.
