When To Go To Bhutan
In most parts of Bhutan you will experience cold European-like weather.
Spring - March to May
The spring months of March, April and May are best for the flora. Towards the end of the season, flowers would be in full bloom.
It can be stormy as the monsoon builds up for July-September.
Spring has longer days, great flowers of the Rhododendrons but visibility is less because of the rain.
Summer - June to September
If the monsoon is late, the whole of June will be great for traveling.
Monsoon will be in its strongest in July, and will bring afternoon light showers once every 2 to 3 days.
Gangtey should be avoided as the country road can be swollen with mud. Flowers and rice fields are of a vibrant green and you will still get clear blue skies after the rain.
Autumn - October to November
October and November are arguably the best months, when the monsoon has passed and the skies are clear and the fall colours very beautiful.
Also many festivals are taking place during these months. This is the high season, and it might be difficult to get seats on the flights. Thimphu Festival usually takes places at the end of September or early October.
Winter - December to February
In December, the Himalayan sky is blue and temperatures 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. Extreme weather and heavy snowfall may make the roads to central & eastern Bhutan inaccessible.
