WHEN TO VISIT

Bhutan is magnificent at any time of the year with each season offering its own beauty, magic, and charm.

 

Spring and summer (March - August) bloom with the colors of mountain flora and emerald green rice terraces. Temperatures range between 20-30ºC (68-86 ºF), with sunny days and the potential for light rain later in the day and overnight.

Autumn and winter months (September - February) reveal brilliant skies by day and stunning starscapes by night punctuated by the crispest, cleanest mountain air. Temperatures range between 7-20ºC (45-68 ºF) by day, dropping to around freezing at night in the winter months – so guests can explore the landscape at leisure before returning to roaring fires, hot cider and spiced milk tea.
