BEST TIME TO VISIT:

The best seasons to visit Bhutan are Spring and Autumn. During the months of March till May, the Kingdom enjoys beautiful days and moderately cold nights. Flowers are in full bloom and it is also a perfect time to go trekking. The months of September till the end of November are equally sunbathed. The autumn light is particularly clear compared to the Spring and provides a photographer’s paradise! Autumn and Spring are also the festival seasons where you can coincide your trip with one of them. See our festival page here for dates.
