Flights to Bhutan
A small country in the Himalayas surrounded by Tibet, China and India, Bhutan is a unique destination for its beautiful geography and rich culture. The country is also well-known for its cultural sights with Jakar, Paro, Punakha and Thimphu just some of the more popular destinations. Bhutan is also a must-visit place for bird enthusiasts as it is considered to be a birders paradise with excellent wildlife to be seen.
Paro, located southwest of Bhutan, is a top destination that attracts many visitors thanks to its sacred sites and historic buildings. The most popular tourist spot in Paro, and considered to be an unofficial symbol of Bhutan, is the Taktsang Monastery. The monastery is unique for its location, perched on the edge of a 1,200 meter high cliff, making it an impressive sight to behold. It is also home to several dzongs or a distinctive type of fortress popular in Bhutan, namely the Rinpung Dzong and Drukgyel Dzong.
For another beautiful city to visit, head over to Jakar, which is located in the town of Bumthang at Bhutan’s northern region. Jakar is popular among travelers for its picturesque landscape thanks for its ideal location within the Choekor Valley. Also known as the “Little Switzerland” of Bhutan, Jakar is surrounded by tree covered mountains with numerous pilgrimage sites dotted throughout the area.
These are just a couple of the beautiful cities of Bhutan and there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy when vacationing in the country. However, before booking that flight to Bhutan, it is always good to know when the best time to visit the country is. Spring and fall seasons are generally considered to be the best time to visit Bhutan. Spring season falls during the months of March to May and is a beautiful time to visit thanks to the blooming local flora and fauna. Meanwhile, fall season happens between the months of September to October, with the rice crop valleys turning into beautiful shades of gold. However, it should be noted that fall is a peak and crowded time for Bhutan particularly in October.

Your holiday also needs to be booked by an official and licensed local tour operator. It is best to check with your local embassy for the latest visa rules and regulations for Bhutan.
