This tiny Buddhist country has a wide range of elevation which varies from 250m upto 7314m, making Bhutan as all round year destination. We enjoy four beautiful seasons- Spring(March to May), Summers(June to August), Autumn(September to November) and Winters(December to February). Spring and Autumn are the best time to visit Bhutan. Having said so, summer and winter have their own draws and attractions.

Spring(March to May): This is the most popular time to visit Bhutan. Temperatures are pleasant. Nature lovers who are keen on local flora should consider being here at the end of April or in May. The trek routes are very nicely doable: Jomolhari Trek & Drukpath Trek from mid-april til end-May. Early April witnesses the Paro Tshechu. This is the best chance to meet the King of Bhutan as he often makes his way to the festivities between the 3rd and last day. Also at this time, Paro is overwhelmed with loads of travelers. If you plan to fly in, the air tickets get sold out by January. So book ahead to get the best accommodation and flights.

Summers(June to August): Consider early June if you wish to avoid higher tarrifs and cold temperatures. Monsoons start downpouring by July. Even in monsoons, Bhutan experiences relatively light rain with most rainfall confined to the late afternoon and does not affect most travellers’ itinerary.

Autumn/Fall (September to November): Autumn/ Fall is a high and crowded time for Bhutan. The mild weather in this time period makes it just a perfect kind of holiday. Thimphu Festival usually takes places at the end of September or early October. Its a grand affair and requires advance booking since nicer hotels and flights get sold  out very soon.

Winters(December to February): Bhutan is a luring destination in December due to less crowd, still not that cold a month and beautiful landscapes with clear skies. January or February are the months of cold, great time to experience snow fall.

So pick up that time of the year that looks great to your kind of travel and hit this road to the land of happiness.
