Bhutan's mountainous geography varies greatly in temperature. In the north where it is higher in altitude, weather conditions resemble the arctic. Looking southwards where it is closer to sea level, the weather is hot and humid in the summer and cool in the winter.
Traveling to Bhutan is best when it is warm, dry and sunny, specifically during the spring (March - May) and the fall (September - November).
