    Essential Information

    When is the ideal time to visit Bhutan, and what is the weather like there?

    Bhutan can be visited all year long. Summer (June, July, and August), autumn (September, October, and November), winter (December, January, and February), and spring is the four seasons (March, April, and May). However, the country has a wide range of altitudes, and the north Indian monsoons significantly impact the climate.

    Temperatures in the southern hemisphere typically range from 15°C to 30°C year-round in a humid, subtropical climate. Warm summers and chilly, dry winters characterize the climate in central Bhutan, which features softwoods. Winter temperatures in the north are substantially lower. Mountain summits are always covered in snow due to their high height, and the lower regions are kept cool in the summer.

    The Indian monsoon season primarily affects the southern regions and lasts from late June or July until late September during the summer. Summer is the primary farming season because crops grow in lush surroundings.

    The wet season is followed by autumn, which lasts from late September or early October through late November. Bright, sunny days and perhaps early snowfall at higher elevations are its defining features. As farmers enjoy the rewards of their labor, this is the time of year for celebrations and feasts.

    The winter arrives in late November and lasts until March. Most of the country experiences frost, and snowfall is frequent above elevations of 3,000 meters. Bhutan’s official language, Dzongkha, translates Drukyul as “Land of the Thunder Dragon” and describes the region as having gale-force winds at the highest elevations and via high mountain passes. The winter northeast monsoon causes this phenomenon.

    Bhutan’s typically dry spring season begins in early March and lasts through mid-April. With nature in its prime, it is a botanist’s dream. With sporadic showers, summer weather starts mid-April and lasts until late June.
