It is then followed by summer with occasional showers until late September. Trekking is not favorable during this part of the year. However, if you are looking forward to being in Bhutan during a less touristic month , summer is the best but monsoon can get on the way.

Autumn follows until late November, characterized by sunny days. There are many Bhutan Festivals during Autumn. The weather is good and just like spring the weather is a favorable time to venture into  trekking. 

Winter until the middle of March is marked by  snowfall for regions above 2,500mts. The country landscape looks amazing with snow capped mountains, something that photographers may look forward to. The only issue could be unexpected road blocks due to heavy snowfall.
