The best time to visit Bhutan is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. During these months, the weather is pleasant, and the skies are clear, making it ideal for sightseeing and trekking. However, if you want to witness the Black-necked Crane Festival, which is held in Phobjikha Valley every year in November, then autumn is the best time to visit.

The temperature ranges from 10 degree Celsius to 25 degrees Celsius during the day and drops to 5 degrees Celsius to 15 degrees Celsius at night. So, keep it in mind that weather can be unpredictable in Bhutan, so it’s always a good idea to check the weather forecast before planning your trip. Overall, it’s a beautiful place to explore for.
