    Seasons in Bhutan

    Bhutan considers itself to the mythical paradise on earth and therefore it is called - Shangri La. It means a Hidden Paradise. It is hidden because Bhutan remained cut-off from other parts of the world for many centuries. It is a paradise because no adverse natural calamities like - floods, storms, earthquake, landslides have ever occurred in Bhutan. Famous for its forest cover, the natural biodiversity is always a delight to any botanist or nature lover with the sheer variety of flora and shades of green.

    Bhutan is climatically divided by four equal seasons and each season brings their own beauties making the country exotic destination to visit any season. However, the rush seasons for the International Tourists are Spring & Autumn as most of the local festivals take place during these two seasons for practical reasons:

    The Spring Season months are March, April & May. One of the best times to visit Bhutan is in Spring. During the season, splashes of colors rival the multicolored prayer flags on high passes. As elsewhere, the mother-nature comes into full life with flowers in bloom wherever the journey take place. Most major festivals take place during the spring.

    The Summer Season months are June, July & August. One of the most pleasant times to be in Bhutan is in summer. Rains fall during the summer season and it is considered wettest season, but the annual rainfalls are tolerable. Being a mountainous country, sometimes incessant rainfall over a week cause minor landslides but cause no major road blocks. There are few Summer Festivals & events.

    The Autumn Season months are September, October & November. Autumn season is most pleasant with favorable weather and crispy cool Himalayan breeze sweeping throughout the country. It is also the end of farming season, thus, freeing the rural population to participate in the annual festivals and community events.

    The Winter Season month are December, January & February. Winter months are comparatively cold but not severe and fierce winters. While Bhutan has high mountains under perpetual snow cover, the snow fall in the river basins are rare where most settlements exist. Thimphu, the capital city at 2822m hardly receives one or two light snow falls during the winter. There are few Winter Festivals.
