The best season to travel to Bhutan is from March to June when spring and summer meet and September to October when autumn and winter meet. Although located in the subtropical zone, Bhutan has unique geographical and geological characteristics.

Coupled with the influence of the warm and humid monsoon airflow in the Indian Ocean, the climate varies greatly from place to place. At present, the main tourist areas are basically in areas with relatively low altitudes, so they are suitable for tourism throughout the year. In Bhutan, you can see different natural landscapes in the plateau cold zone, north temperate zone, subtropical and even tropical.
