Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

The best time to travel to Bhutan is October through April. From October through December expect pleasant weather with clear skies. Winter is a quiet time offering dry crisp weather and the chance to see the rare black-necked crane (November through February). Late spring sees the spectacular bloom of the rhododendron.
