Weather and Climate

Located in the eastern part of the Himalayas, Bhutan experiences five distinct climatic seasons – winter, spring, summer, monsoon and autumn.

The central districts of Punakha, Wangdue Phodrang, Mongar, Trashigang and Lhuntse enjoy a semi tropical climate with very cool winters, and warm summers. Thimphu, Paro, Trongsa and Bumthang have pleasant summers, but cold and freezing winters. The southern part of Bhutan is usually tropical, with hot humid summers and cool winters.

Spring is perhaps one of the most beautiful seasons, where flowers bloom and the cold subsides. The annual monsoon season is from June to August.

Late September sees the advent of autumn, which is a good season for trekking till November before the winter cold sets in. Winter months of November through February are generally dry with daytime temperatures sometimes falling below zero degrees Celsius. Occasionally, the valleys will experience strong winds which will also affect the temperatures. In general, the eastern and central Bhutan is warmer and drier than the western Bhutan.

Best Time to Visit Bhutan

The most popular periods to visit Bhutan are between March to May, and September to November, where the days are generally warmer with little rain. The clear skies will allow the best views of the Himalayas Mountains.

Daytime temperature ranges between 62 to 82 Fahrenheit or 20 to 30 Degrees Celsius. Besides, there will be a lot of interesting and traditional festivals during these 2 seasons.
