Best Time to Visit Bhutan
The Spring Season months are March, April & May. One of the best times to visit Bhutan is in Spring. During the season, splashes of colors rival the multicolored prayer flags on high passes. As elsewhere, the mother-nature comes into full life with flowers in bloom wherever the journey take place. Most major festivals take place during the spring.
The Autumn Season months are September, October & November. Autumn season is most pleasant with favourable weather and crispy cool Himalayan breeze sweeping throughout the country. It is also the end of farming season, thus, freeing the rural population to participate in the annual festivals and community events.
The Summer Season months are June, July & August. One of the most pleasant times to be in Bhutan is in summer. Rains fall during the summer season and it is considered wettest season, but the annual rainfalls are tolerable. Being a mountainous country, sometimes incessant rainfall over a week cause minor landslides but cause no major road blocks. There are few Summer Festivals & events.
The Winter Season month are December, January & February. Winter months are comparatively cold but not severe and fierce winters. While Bhutan has high mountains under perpetual snow cover, the snow fall in the river basins are rare where most settlements exist. Thimphu, the capital city at 2822m
hardly receives one or two light snow falls during the winter. There are few Winter Festivals.
