Although Bhutan is very small, it has a surprising range of climates. The very far north-western region (in the most mountainous region) has a polar climate, whereas the southern plains and foothills are subtropical.
The weather is best in spring (March to April) and again in autumn (September to November). The Himalayan views are considered best during the autumn months, particularly October. These months constitute the official high season.
Located close to Paro, where the international airport links to Bangkok, India and Singapore. Paro airport is a 10-minute drive from the resort.
