The best season to visit Bhutan is spring (March, April, and May) and Autumn (September, October, and November). The significant Bhutanese festivals are held in these seasons, making travel throughout the country ideal and enjoyable providing one of the astonishing views of the valley, Himalayan Mountains, with perfect weather.
Paro Tshechu usually happens in March and Thimphu Tshechu in September, attracting many foreign visitors and locals. Tshechu is a religious festival of Drukpa Buddhism, consisting of sacred mask dances, cultural programs, and unfurling thongdrel or Thangka.
Nevertheless, Bhutan has four seasons. There are different appeals and attractions in each season with its charm. During the summer (June, July, August), they have their event to celebrates. Although there will be a short period of rainfall, it is manageable with adequate planning and equipment provided by the Tour Operators/ Travel Agents like us.
