Bhutan has four distinct seasons and each season has its own beauty and charm. Bhutan is an year-round destination. So, it is entirely up to you to decide your travel period. Two factors you may like to consider are weather and rates:
1. Spring (March, April & May)
Spring is a botanist’s delight as various flowers start to bloom and plants start budding after their long dormancy in winter. Flowers such as rhododendron, wild azaleas, and edelweiss cover the meadows like carpet and add a new sense of wonder to the Bhutan’s landscape.
2. Summer (June, July & August):
This season is a period of hot and wet climatic condition with high precipitation in most parts of the country. It is an abundant time of the year as flowers are in full bloom and valleys are covered in green.
3. Autumn (September, October & November)
This is the time when the entire landscape turns into golden color. The farmers harvesting their crops in the golden colored paddy fields under the crisp blue skies is just an amazing view of Bhutan’s landscape in the Autumn season.
4. Winter (December, January & February)
These months experience cold and dry climatic conditions. However, the chilly winter season in Bhutan gives one a clear view of the world’s highest Himalayan mountain ranges covered in snow.
You can visit Western Bhutan (Thimphu, Paro, Punukha and Wangduephodrang) anytime of the year. Avoid Central and Eastern Bhutan during the monsoon months of July – August when the weather is sometimes a little wet for sightseeing.
The minimum daily package for tourists travelling in a group of 3 persons or more is as follows:
- USD $200 per person per night for the months of January, February, June, July, August, and December.
- USD $250 per person per night for the months of March, April, May, September, October, and November.
