If you are planning to visit Bhutan in the fall, October through November is the best time to visit. The weather is the mild and you will see the valleys hued in autumn shades and the fields ready to harvest showing the hard works of the farmers.

As the sky is clear and fresh, it favours the photo session too. Moreover, it is the time to witness the rare Black-Necked Cranes in Phobjikha Valley. One interesting fact is that, the cranes arrival from the Tibetan Plateau marks the end of the harvest season.
