Bhutan as written in "Lonely planet" - a
Bhutan, nestling in the heart of the great Himalaya, has
for centuries remained aloof from the rest of the world.
Since its doors were cautiously opened in 1974, visitors
have been mesmerised: the environment is pristine, the scenery
and architecture awesome and the people hospitable and charming.
Bhutan - When to go
The ideal time for trekking in Bhutan is late-September to late-November
when skies are generally clear and the high mountain peaks
rise to a vivid blue sky. March-May is recognised as the
second-best time to visit Bhutan for touring and trekking.
Though there are more clouds and rain, the magnificent wildflowers
are in bloom and birdlife is abundant. You're likely to
get wet no matter what the season, but avoid the monsoon,
June-August, when an average of 0.5m (1.5ft) of rain buckets
down in Thimphu and up to 1m (3ft) saturates the eastern
Winter is a good time for touring in western Bhutan, bird
watching in the subtropical jungles in the south, and white
water rafting. The days are sunny and cool but it's quite
cold once the sun sets. From December to February the road
from Thimphu to Bumthang and the east may be closed because
of snow for several days at a time. It would be best not
to plan to visit these regions at this time.
In recent years overcrowding has become an issue in Bhutan during
the major tsechus (Buddhist festivals) at Thimphu and Paro,
which coincide with the best seasons. You stand a much better
chance of getting flights, accommodation and probably a
more intimate and rewarding festival experience if you schedule
your trip around one of the other cultural events.
This is straight out of Lonely planet, thanks to the Lonely
We at Earthbound Expeditions generally don't suggest short
itinerary to Bhutan as it cost quite a lot to go there and
you have to enjoy the tour taking enough time to understand.
But sometimes while people have short time also they want
to go there here is some itinerary, which we offer regularly.
The Bhutan tour can be combined with Darjeeling, Sikkim,
Tibet Lhasa or Taj Mahal, Jaipur in India. Also can be combined
with Buddhist circuit tour like Lumbini, Boudhagaya,
Kushinagar, Sarnath. Let us know if you want to have further informations.
