Climate
The central valleys of Punakha, Wangdiphodrang, Mongar, Trashigang and Lhuntsi enjoy a semi tropical climate with very cool winters, while Thimphu, Trongsa and Bumthang have a much harsher climate, with heavy monsoon rains in the summer and heavy snow-fall in the winter, which often blocks the passes leading into the central valleys.

Winter in Bhutan is from mid-November until mid-March, and at this time of the year the climate is dry, with daytime temperatures sometimes falling below zero Celsius. The monsoon usually arrives in mid-June, with the rain falling mainly in the afternoons and evenings.

At the end of September, after the last of the big rains, autumn suddenly arrives, and is a magnificent season for trekking until November.

The southern part of Bhutan is tropical, and in general the east of Bhutan is warmer than the west of the country.
