Best Time To Visit Bhutan

The best time or season to visit Bhutan are between March and May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn).  However it is still possible to visit Bhutan throughout the year though for some months, you might not be able to catch the perfect glimpse of mountain peaks. Bhutan is a deeply religious place so its calendar is filled with colorful festivals that take place all around the year in every part of the country. There may be some humidity in the months between June and August. If you want to see the famed black necked cranes, then the best time is in winter, from November to February. To offer the best of the country we have outlined four main seasons. Each season has its own impressions and the country offers different attractions. Bhutan, though relatively small, enjoys different climatic conditions and its terrain ranges from the plains to very alpine regions. So each season presents a different side of Bhutan and so does its geography.

5 Books to Read before Traveling to Tibet

No, we aren’t talking about guidebooks! Although we don’t deny the importance of guidebooks in a new place and while traveling for the first time, we also recommend books that have personal experiences in them; those that speak about more than just places and how to get there. We want to recommend books that don’t only contain historical details but those which can say a great deal about both the destination that it describes and the culture in which it is produced, as well as the morals of a society from personal observation. It must be understood that a book must also serve the purpose of aiding tourists during their travel. But we want you to have more than an impersonal, systematic approach to travel that guidebooks can offer. A trip is about creating a travel experience by addressing certain needs, values or underlying dimensions of destinations and also about understanding systems and values, cultures and perspectives. The books we suggest represent the indication of personal travel experience and have been created out of personal observations through travel. These books take you on a journey, within and without, investigating places and people while familiarizing you with identities through cultural resources.
