When to Visit Bhutan - Climate & Seasons

In a land where lush tropical forests roll into soaring mountains, and crisscross into a matrix of tumbling rivers, Bhutan is home to a richly diverse climate. Elevation varies from 200 meters above sea level in the southern foothills to over 7,000m / 22,000 feet in the high northern mountains.
