BEST HOTELS IN Bhutan
BEST TIME TO VISIT BHUTAN
= Excellent: Spring & Autumn are easily the best times of the year to explore Bhutan. Spring (Mar-May) brings nature lovers close to the blossoming flora & fauna with incredible panoramic vistas of the valleys. Autumn (Sep-Nov) again brings pleasant climate, stunning views & ideal conditions for trekking. It even boasts of some of the most popular local festivals (such as Thimphu Tscechu). Advisable to book in advance (especially Oct) for these periods given the low availability & higher pricing across all the valleys.
= Good: During the Winters (Dec-Feb), Bhutan is as cold as it gets in the country. Snowfall generally occurs in Jan & Feb - only 3000m and above. The lower temperatures mean lesser tourists and better pricing across the country. Still a good time for trekking in the central highlands & south of the country. Also is a very good time to catch the endangered Black-neck Crane without hoards of crowds.
= Fair: The Summer in Bhutan brings the increased temperatures & higher rainfall to the country. Yet, protected by the mighty Himalayas, rain unlike most other parts of Asia is often intermittent and limited to late nights or early mornings. Not an ideal time for birdwatching or treks, this period is rewarding for those seeking to escape the crowds with attractive deals on offer at luxury lodges.
