Useful Information


Autumn (October to December) is the best seasons for the Bhutan Cultural Tour – 15 Days. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. During winter (Dec., Jan. and Feb.) could also be an option but from April the climate remains dry and pleasant. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Tour in the Monsoon seasons (June to Aug.) will be affected by rain. If you’re interested in seeing the rare black – necked cranes, we recommend visiting the Phobjikha Vally between late October and mid-February.
