Best Season for 11 Days Nepal Bhutan Tour
Both Nepal and Bhutan experience four seasons a year. Visits to these two Himalayan countries can be made at any time of the year depending upon the preferences of the travelers. However, spring and autumn are the peak seasons for any activities in these countries.
The days of spring are clear and warm and there is little prospect of rain until the monsoons arrive in June or July. The valleys are covered in fresh new growth and bright green grass in the spring. The laps of the mighty Himalayas are covered with lovely Rhododendrons blossom, lending more color to the pristine landscapes of the gorgeous landlocked countries.
Autumn is the topmost time for exploring these Himalayan Nations because the weather is pleasant with the clear blue sky being crisp and the temperature-to-visibility ratio being good. Autumn also holds some of the country's most important festivals. Every year in October and November, the biggest festivals of Nepal, Dashain, and Tihar take place and in September, the Thimphu Tsechu, one of the most prominent Tsechus, takes place in Bhutan.
In both Nepal and Bhutan, the months of June, July, and August are known as the summer months with hot, humid weather with gloomy skies and rain. Wildflowers and lush foliage abound in these two South Asian countries. While trekking is not possible in most regions, summer is an excellent season to learn about Nepal’s and Bhutan's culture and visit the country's old historical monuments.
Winter offers chilly, dry weather with snow in the mountains in both Nepal and Bhutan. Typically, the sky is blue with no or few clouds. You would get more gorgeous and bright days in the winter than you would in the spring or fall!
