Best Time To Visit Paro
May to September is the warmest time of year with temperatures generally above freezing at night and maximum temperatures between 10 and 14°C, however, the warmest months from June to September also see the most rain, peaking in July and August with over 4 inches. For this reason, spring from March to May and early autumn from September and October are the best times to visit Paro, with the Paro festival held in March. This is also the busiest time of the year to visit. The summer season from June to August sees afternoon downpours, but the countryside is lush and green. Mountain vistas are often obscured by clouds though. The Winter season from December to March sees only a dusting of snow.
