Best time to go
The best time to visit Bhutan is from October to May as the climate is mostly dry and sunny. In December and January, snow may block some mountain passes causing restricted travel.
The capital Thimphu, with its stupas, dzongs and wealth of arts and crafts, is well worth discovering. Thimphu lies in a steep valley at an altitude of 2,350 metres.
