When is the best time to visit Bhutan?
If you are asking WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT BHUTAN then we would suggest that spring and autumn are definitely the best time to visit Bhutan. At the same time summer and winter have their own draws and attractions.
Spring (March, April & May) is considered the most striking time of the year, dazzling and blazing with a remarkable display of bright colors. This is the time when the valleys are green with fresh vegetation and fruit trees are blossoming ,the time when locals are naturally mirthful and cheery, when visitors are most welcome.
Monsoon (June, July & August):Magnificent skies and warm weather is a pleasant time to devote visiting places of cultural and historical interest though this season is not the best time for trekking. Enjoy watching the rainfall from your hotel window. Or if you possess an adventurous spirit, take a through the town!
Autumn (September, October & November) is lovely with clear and crisp blue skies, providing a grand view of some of the tallest unclimbed mountains in the world. It is the best time for trekking and traveling. The climate is cool and temperate and you can get lovely photography opportunities of willows shedding their golden brown leaves, the solitude of parks and somber views of dzongs and monasteries.
Winter (December, January & February) is sunny, cool and agreeable to say the least. Much of the east-west highway remains snowbound during winter. One of the chief attractions in winter is the beautiful Gangtey (Phobjikha) valley where you can expect to see a wide expanse of rolling plain with bamboo shrubs. The graceful Black-Necked Cranes come to roost at the plain from the Tibetan plateau during this time of the year offering you wild-life picture opportunities.It is the best time to tour the western districts of Paro, Wangdue, Punakha,Thimphu and Haa. At the Dochula Pass en route to Punkaha, you can view the Himalayan peaks including the highest mountain peak in Bhutan – Gangkar Puensum when the weather is clear and sunny as it is during most winter days.
