The most popular times of travel are in autumn and spring. But actually for those who do not mind having some bit colder evening winter is the better option.
For good reasons:
– Off-season prices are by far more reasonable
– The view in the mountains is great
– Less tourists travel in winter time
Winter: December to february
The nights are – dependend on the elevation – already bit frosty. But on daytime you can expect sun and sometimes even above 20 degrees Celsius. It snows very rarely down to the valleys. Winter is a good time for hikings and cycling.
Spring: March to May
Those who love nature and flora will love travelling in spring. Everything is in blossom: rhododendron, Edelweiss, apple- and pear-trees. It is warm and moist, and sometimes it can be foggy. During spring time several festivals are held, which many travellers attend.
Summer: June to August
Everything is deep green and fertile. It is moist and hot, and it rains a lot. This is why not many people visit Bhutan in summer – but on the other hand the prices are much lower during that season and you will be treated like a king/queen.
Autumn: September to November
The sky becomes clearer and less rainfalls occur. During autumn a lot of festivals are held, which draws many visitors to Bhutan. Whoever wants to travel to Bhutan in autumn has to hurry – there are only limited seats on the planes and hotels are sold out quickly.
