Question: Things to Know before coming to Bhutan.
Answer: When to Travel
The southern part of Bhutan is tropical and in general the eastern part of the country is warmer than the central valleys.  The higher the altitude, the cooler the weather, and with winds blowing off the mountains the valleys can become chilly.  The valleys of Punakha, Wangeduephodrang, Mongar, Trashigang and Lhuentse enjoy a semi tropical climate with cool winters, while Paro, Thimpu, Trongsa and Bumthang have a much harsher climate with summer monsoon rains and winter snowfalls. Winter in Bhutan (mid November to mid March) is dry and sunny for the most part with temperatures of 16 to 18 C.  The spring season (mid March to mid June) offers warmer temperatures rising to 27 to 29C.  The monsoon arrives in mid June. At the end of September autumn suddenly arrives and is a great time for trekking till November.

May to September are the best months to travel.

Bhutan is 6 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time.

The Ngultrum is fixed to the Indian rupee. 100 Chetrum=1 Ngultrum.  Tourists are advised to carry travellers cheques, preferably in US dollars. Credit cards are accepted in some places but there are NO ATM machines in Bhutan.  There are however banks in all major cities.

As for India

Due to the wide range of temperature and climatic conditions it is advisable to dress in layers.  Clothes should preferably be made from natural fibres, e.g. silk, wool and cotton. If you are going on a trek you will need to pack really warm tops, a hat, gloves and proper thermal undergarments as well as thick socks and hiking boots. As with India and Sri Lanka modest dressing is essential throughout Bhutan.
