Bhutan in Summer

The long days of summer in Bhutan tend to be uncrowded, verdant, and less rainy than most visitors expect. Afternoon showers generally occur each day during the green season, with July and August receiving as much as 14 inches per month. However, heavy rains often fall during the night, so while low clouds may hang on the hills and sometimes obscure views by day, it is also common to experience long periods without rain. If you want to escape the crowds, capture some great deals, see the country at its most lush green or enjoy the uniquely intimate Gangtey festival, this is the time to travel to Bhutan. It’s also a nice season to spend time at a spa or in a meditation room if you opt to stay at Bhutan’s more luxurious hotels.
