Best time to be there
Bhutan offers warm days and cool nights all year round. October and November are arguably the best months, when the monsoon has passed and the skies are clear for mountain photography. The spring months of March, April and May are best for the flora, but it can be stormy as the monsoon builds up for July-September.

Bhutan with A&KVisit Bhutan and you'll find a country unlike anywhere else on earth. It has the only capital city without traffic lights, measures gross national happiness to help policy making - returning clients tell us it's very high - and boasts archery as a national sport, with traditional matches lasting several days, and ridiculing your opponents a legal tactic.
While embracing tourism over the last decade or so, notably for trekking along magnificent valleys offering memorable Himalayan views, it remains an exclusive non-budget destination - and now has Aman and Como Hotels. But to get the most from this unique country, with its monasteries and incredibly hospitable people, you still need an experienced, well-connected operator.
A&K's large team of highly qualified staff have provided premium travel across the region for over quarter of a century. With longstanding partners in Bhutan, the best senior guides including cultural and conservation experts, and personal tour consultant who know the country inside out, we offer seamless travel connections and remarkable experiences off the mainstream travel radar.
