From December to February, there is often snow in the higher regions and occasional snow in else where. Spring, from March to May, is recognized as the second best time to visit for trekking. June to August marks the monsoons. A major factor in choosing the best time to visit Bhutan, while overriding weather patterns is the festival schedule. They offer a first-hand glimpse of Bhutanese life and provide an opportunity to see the inside of the great dzongs.

The best time for Bhutan tours according to season:

  • Main season: February – May, October – November

Go to Bhutan now! We don’t believe it is really going to stay this way for long. And it really is unique right now. Building laws require that dwellings be built in the traditional fashion and this makes for the most beautiful and original vistas. No one goes to Bhutan for the cuisine.
