Climate in Bhutan


General days are normally warm. Nights can at times be very cool, and winter even below freezing. Monsoon showers occur in summer (Heaviest in July and August), and sometimes even in spring and autumn. The most visited months are March, April, May, September, October and November. During these months you may expect mostly warm days and cool/cold nights. Whereas rain or snow is not usual at these items, it is a possibility.


The population of Bhutan is estimated at 600000. As in most developing countries, the proportion of the population under 15 is as high as 43%. As this age group enters the reproductive period, the population growth rate is likely to rise above the current 3.1% unless family planning is more widely practised. With this in view, various family planning options with the latest techniques are made freely available, accompanied by a family planning information campaign.
