Bhutan is otherworldly. It’s the last Buddhist Kingdom, shrouded in mystery and magic, where traditional culture carefully embraces global developments. This is a country where the rice is red and where chilies aren’t just a seasoning but the main ingredient.
Yet while it proudly prioritises its Buddhist traditions, Bhutan is not isolated in time, famously preferring GNP (Gross National Happiness) over GDP. The Bhutanese people are well-educated, vivacious and very well informed about the world around them. It’s this amalgam of the ancient and modern that makes Bhutan endlessly fascinating.
Bhutan’s topography is comprised of the sweeping eastern Himalayan landscape, where snow-capped peaks rise above ancient forests and beautiful traditional villages. To this picture-book landscape add majestic fortress-like dzongs and monasteries, many of which act as a stage for spectacular dance festivals attended by an almost medieval-looking audience.
Then there are the textiles and handicrafts, unusual archery competitions, high-altitude trekking trails, and stunning flora and fauna. This is as close to ‘Shangri-La’ as one could get.

The best time to visit Bhutan is during the spring (March to May) and fall (September to November) when temperatures are moderate, skies are clear, and the popular festivals occur.
Thimphu and Paro in the western region experience temperatures ranging from 10°C to 27°C in spring and fall. Punakha in the central region is warmer with temperatures from 17°C to 28°C during these periods.
Springtime in Bhutan is an ideal period for trekking, thanks to landscapes beautifully adorned by blooming rhododendrons. The fall season provides unobstructed, clear views of the grand Himalayas.
During the winter months of December to February, fewer tourists visit, making it an appealing time for those seeking tranquility, although temperatures can dip quite low, especially in northern areas. The monsoon season, spanning from June to August, sees less popularity due to frequent rainfall, but this period also showcases a lush, verdant landscape, adding a unique charm to Bhutan's scenery.
A trip to Bhutan can range from a week to 10 days for a comprehensive overview of the country. With one week, you can comfortably explore the main destinations like Thimphu, Paro, and Punakha, delving into their rich culture and history.
To fully immerse yourself in the unique Bhutanese heritage, enjoy leisurely hikes, and possibly visit less-traveled regions, a 10-day trip would be more suitable. However, the duration of your stay ultimately depends on your interests and the pace at which you wish to travel.
Traveling to Bhutan independently is not permitted. All foreign visitors are required to book their trip through a registered Bhutanese tour company or an international travel agent affiliated with one.
This regulation is part of Bhutan's approach to sustainable tourism, helping ensure that visitors receive a rich and well-organized experience of the country's unique culture and natural beauty while preserving Bhutan's traditions and environment. So, for your Bhutan adventure, it's essential to plan with a recognized travel professional such as Indotrek.
