March to May (Spring) and September to November (Autumn) is the best time to visit Bhutan. Due to its location, Bhutan is prone to varying climatic and altitude differences. It has distinct seasons namely, spring, summer, rainfall, autumn and winter. In spring, which falls from March-May, the weather is beautiful and pleasant. The flowers are in full bloom, and the scenery of the land is brilliant.
The country also hosts various festivals during the spring such as the Paro and Punakha Tshechu. Autumn, on the other hand, is from September - November which also boasts of affable and genial weather.
Summers are from June to August where temperatures reach 24-25 degree Celsius. From July onwards the southwest monsoons set in offsetting the heat but one has to carry a raincoat if out on a sightseeing.
Similarly the winter months of December -February witness the spell of the northeast monsoons. Snowfall is expected in late January and early February when the temperatures drop to the lowest.
