Climate and Average Weather in Bhutan

Bhutan is a country in Asia that lies entirely in the Himalayas. The difference in height causes different climate zones. This means the weather in Bhutan is quite unpredictable and can vary greatly by location and from day to day. On some locations the mountains prevent precipitation from reaching the valleys, while in another location, disruptions can remain in one place for a long time and can therefore cause huge amounts of precipitation. The country generally has a very mild climate with pleasant summers and cool winters.

The south of Bhutan has a tropical climate with a monsoon season. The rainy season lasts from June to about mid-September. In some places there can be quite a lot of rainfall. In the subtropical south it can be humid warm during this season, in the north the temperature is quite pleasant. The north generally has a harsher climate, with monsoon rains in summer and snow in winter, blocking all roads to the center of the country. Winter is from December until March.
