The central valley of Punakha, Wangdue, Mongar, Trashigang and Lhuntsi are semi tropical, with cool winters. Thimphu, Trongsa, Paro, Bumthang have pleasant summers and very cold winters with occasional snowfall blocking the passes leading into central Bhutan. The monsoon usually arrives in mid June till the end of August. From mid September, after the last rains, autumn arrives and is a best time for trekking, which last till end of November.

Recommended Packing List

During your visits monasteries, Dzongs and other religious institutions please do not wear shorts or hats.

Usually Bhutanese delicacies are rich in spicy chilies and cheese but prepared in a mild way for tourist. Other choices like Continental and Indian cuisine is also served. During treks, well-trained cooks prepare dishes suitable to western tastes from continental, Indian and Bhutanese.
