Earlier, Bhutan had distinctions, such as, Season and off-season, based mainly on the country’s rainfall pattern. However, with most tourists used to Bhutan’s climate and the rains no longer strong enough to derail Bhutan’s modern infrastructure, the Kingdom is now a year round destination. However, rains and the winter snow would not make trekkers very happy. For those on a cultural tour, Bhutan is a 12 month destination, unless you want to weave your cultural trip with religious events called Tsechus, performed in different parts of the country on varying dates.
Nonetheless, the country’s beauty is dependent on such geographical elements, and thus, Bhutan is best seen during spring and autumn; the months of March, April May, September, October and November, respectively. Both the seasons are termed “peak tourists arrival time,” officially.
The reasons are pleasant weather in the two seasons and the number of Tsechus observed, with major ones like the Paro, Thimphu and Wangduephodrang Tshechus, including the Naked Dance of Jambay Lhakhang in Bumthang. All kinds of Bhutan travel and holiday activities are favored during high season.
