BEST TIME TO VISIT BHUTAN

 

September to November: The month of September marks the beginning of autumn in Paro and is considered one of the best times to visit the city. Visitors are greeted with clear skies and pleasant weather. The maximum temperature during this time of the year rarely crosses 20 degrees Celsius and the minimum temperature is usually around 4 degrees Celsius. This is also a great time to enjoy adventure activities such as trekking. Rain showers are common during this time of the year, so it is advised to carry an umbrella along.

December to February: Winters in Paro are also a great time to visit the city as most tourists have left by this time. It is also easier to secure a great deal on hotels during this time of the year. Day are sunny, though evenings and nights can be very cold and so do remember to carry thick woollens along. This is a great time to adventure activities like white-water rafting and bird watching. The maximum temperature during this time of the year is 9 degrees Celsius and the minimum temperature drops down to -10 degrees Celsius.

March to May: Spring in Paro is another great time to visit the city. This time of the year is perfect to enjoy nature, since flowers are in full bloom. Bird watchers will also be able to spot the abundant bird life in the region. Enjoy an unobstructed view of the peaks and also the famous Paro Tsechu, a popular festival. Don’t forget to carry woollens along, as it can be pretty cold.

June to August: The beginning of summer in Paro brings with it heavy rains. The mountains are cloaked in clouds and look absolutely surreal! The maximum temperature goes up to 21 degrees Celsius and the minimum temperature drops to 7 degrees Celsius. Since this is the wettest time of the year in Paro, make sure you carry an umbrella along.
