Useful Info

5 Nights 6 Days Bhutan Tour Package Best Time

Your interests and choices will determine the best time to visit Bhutan. Bhutan has four distinct seasons just like Nepal, each with advantages and disadvantages of its own:

  • Spring (March-May): Spring is an excellent season to visit Bhutan when the weather is nice and the scenery is full of rhododendron, cherry blossoms, and other wildflowers. Moreover, this is a well-liked time for celebrations that let visitors fully experience Bhutanese culture.
  • Summer (June - August): Bhutan experiences its heaviest rainfall and landslides during the summer. But this is also the season when the countryside is verdant, and the monsoon clouds provide stunning views of the mountains. This is a great time to go hiking because the trails have less traffic.
  • Autumn (September-November): Autumn is a popular season to visit Bhutan because of the country's dry, temperate weather and brilliant skies, which offer breathtaking views of the Himalayas. It's also a great opportunity to take in the many activities held during this season and to witness the breathtaking fall colors of Bhutan's forests.
  • Winter (December - February): The driest season in Bhutan is winter, which features chilly evenings and clear blue skies during the day. Since many migratory species come during this season, if you enjoy bird watching, this is a great time to visit Bhutan. For an uncrowded view of Bhutan's historic temples and monasteries, winter is a great time of year.

Your interests and choices will determine the best time to visit Bhutan. If you want to go trekking, the summer might be the best time of year to visit; however, if you want to attend festivals, autumn or spring might be preferable. If you want to enjoy pleasant weather and bright skies, autumn might be the ideal time of year to come.

Accommodation, Foods, and Drinks on 5 Nights 6 Days Bhutan Tour

Conventional lodgings that have been recognized by the Department of Tourism often provide electricity, hot and cold running water, and sometimes room phones. However, guests may have to make international calls through reception. There are a few upscale hotels, although they are not inexpensive. Green Valley Nepal treks will make reservations for your lodging. Upmarket resorts may charge more than the base rate, so be prepared for that. Additionally, keep in mind that hotels are often booked far in advance during festival season, so be prepared to be adaptable.

While there is a large selection of restaurants in Paro and Thimphu, most visitors prefer to dine at the hotels, where the food is prepared to a Western palate's preference and sanitary is good. The main food is rice, which is occasionally spiced with saffron or red rice. However, in central Bhutan, rice farming is challenging due to the high altitude. Here, buckwheat is more prevalent. There are many apple orchards, rice paddies, and wild asparagus growing throughout the nation. Additionally, there are over 400 different kinds of mushrooms, including orchid mushrooms.

Bhutan’s Specialties:

  • Cow's milk cheese, or dautse, is occasionally served with red chilies (ema datshi).
  • Curry, or tshoem, is typically served with rice.
  • Bhutan is home to nutty-flavored eue chum, or pink rice.

Regional Drinks: Tea, either sweet or Tibetan style with butter and salt, is the most popular beverage. Rice is used to distill ara, a spirit. Chang is a type of beer that is typically made at home using grain.

Note: Most meals are vegetarian and are served buffet style. Nowadays, Bhutanese Hindus from Nepal are allowed to kill animals, and meat and fish are imported from neighboring India. Take the usual safety measures.

5 Nights 6 Days Bhutan Tour Difficulties

Like any destination, travelers may face certain difficulties even if a 5 Nights 6 Days Bhutan Tour promises an unforgettable and rewarding experience. To guarantee a seamless and pleasurable trip, it is necessary to be aware of these possible challenges:

  • Altitude Sensitivity: Bhutan is known for its varied elevations, and tourists may suffer from the symptoms of altitude sickness, particularly on higher-elevation trips. It's important to gradually acclimate, drink enough of water, and discuss preventative steps with your healthcare physician.
  • Limited Internet Connectivity: Internet connectivity could be unreliable in certain isolated places. Visitors ought to prepare for communication requirements and be ready for sporadic difficulties when using online services.
  • Varied Weather Conditions: The weather in Bhutan varies according to altitude and season, making it somewhat unpredictable. Particularly during the monsoon season, travelers should pack appropriately, including layers for changing temperatures and rain gear.
  • Road Conditions: Although Bhutan's road system is constantly being improved, certain regions may have difficult or twisting routes. Prepare yourself for beautiful, but occasionally slow, travel hours between destinations.
  • Cultural Etiquette: Respecting and being aware of Bhutanese cultural standards is crucial. Travelers who unintentionally violate local customs may encounter difficulties. A favorable connection can be ensured by making small gestures, such as asking permission before taking pictures in certain areas or dressing appropriately when visiting places of worship.
  • Limited Tourist Infrastructure in Remote Areas: Compared to metropolitan areas, the infrastructure for tourists may be less developed in more rural areas. Although this enhances the experience's authenticity, guests should be ready for basic facilities and services.
  • Restricted Access to Certain Areas: Access to some areas of Bhutan may be restricted in order to preserve the natural environment and cultural landmarks. If there are any restrictions, visitors should be aware of them and adjust their itinerary appropriately. They can also ask local advisors about other choices.
  • Language Barrier: Although most people speak English, especially in tourist destinations, visitors may run into linguistic obstacles in more rural places. The native language, Dzongkha, has a few fundamental words that can be learned to improve communication and cross-cultural exchanges.
  • Limited Currency Exchange Options: Even though major towns offer currency conversion services, travelers should be ready to pay with the local currency (Ngultrum) in more isolated locations as credit card acceptance may be restricted.
  • Wildlife Encounters: Wildlife encounters are possible in some natural places. Especially when going on walks and engaging in outdoor activities, visitors should exercise caution and adhere to safety regulations.
  • Time Constraints: With only five nights and six days, travelers might feel strained for time to properly take in all that Bhutan has to offer. Making the most of the little time can be achieved by ranking the must-see sights and activities.

Many travelers discover that the remarkable cultural experiences, stunning scenery, and friendly hospitality of the Bhutanese people greatly exceed whatever difficulties they may encounter throughout their 5-night, 6-day tour of the country. Being aware and ready makes this exciting adventure even more enjoyable overall.

If something goes wrong while you're traveling, Bhutan trip insurance might be a very helpful tool.

  • It is accurate to say that Bhutan costs more than Nepal and India. To make tours to Bhutan appear more expensive, the government of Bhutan has implemented an all-inclusive overnight pricing structure for all visitors. As a consistent tour operator in Bhutan for ten years, we have heard from recurring customers that they truly obtain value for their money. In light of the tour, each visitor gets access to a private guide, car, and driver. The package also includes all meals, lodging, sightseeing, entrance fees, transfers, taxes, and government royalties. Bhutan is a truly delightful country to visit, and it offers fantastic value for the money.

  • Not at all! Without a prearranged land trip plan with a licensed and approved tour operator and payment of the required nightly all-inclusive government tariff, it is not feasible to obtain an entry visa to visit Bhutan. The government of Bhutan steers clear of independent tourists in order to preserve its rigid cultural norms and natural values. On the other hand, you have a lot of freedom to explore the area, visit towns and marketplaces, and engage with the people as you like. You are free to plan your own private tour; you are not required to go with another group; it only needs to be scheduled and paid for in advance.

  • A staff member from Green Valley Nepal Treks will indeed be waiting to welcome you outside the terminal building. He'll be holding up your name card. You'll be taken to a hotel after that.
