Bringing comfortable cloths for Bhutan visit is very important. The clothing also depend on the season you are visiting Bhutan. If you take Spring and Autumn tours than simple warm jackets,a pair of long pants,sun cap,long sleeve shirts to visit monastery and Dzongs and comfortable shoes will be fine. The temperature ranges from 15 degree lowest to 23 degree during day time. Winter can be cold and warm jackets which can bear the temperature below 0 degree will be comfortable.

Of course all hotels have heating system inside but remember the 3 star Hotel heating system will not be enough as all hotels are built in such a way that outside air come inside which makes the room more colder.
