Phuntsholing Weather And Best Time To Visit Phuntsholing
Lying at the low lands, Phuntsholing’s climate differs greatly from the climate of Bhutan’s highland mountainous districts. When the highlands above 5000 m have snowstorm in winter, Phuntsholing’s winter is pleasant and placid. The northern areas do not have heavy summer rains, while Phuntsholing down south has abundant, torrential rainfall.
If you would overlook the muggy summer monsoon, Phuntsholing’s best time for a visit would be spring, autumn and winter seasons, when the weather is merciful and opportunities to explore abound.
Spring (March to May)
Spring, from March to May is quite warm, with occasional rains in the middle of the day. The weather is quite clear, with fields of blossoms on the surrounding mountain slopes and valleys brightening up the season. Spring is a good time to visit Phuntsholing. The average temperature moves from 12-21°C.
Summer (June to August)
Summer from June to August is very hot and sultry. The monsoon rains pour down along with the heat of the sun. There are landslides and muddy tracks in most monsoon hit areas and it’s hard to get around. It rains for about 12 to 19 days a month. Average temperatures are 19-26°C.
Autumn (September to November)
Autumn from September to November is fun. The skies are clear and you get a grand sight of the fluffy clouds sitting atop the mountain peaks, dotting the horizon. Good time to take out that camera and trek to the outskirts of Phuntsholing for a photo shoot. The maximum temperature is 26.3°C and minimum is 11.8°C.
Winter (December to February)
Winter from December-February is usually dry and mild, though nights may be colder and rains are relatively rare. Winter in Phuntsholing is a good time for tourism. The lowest temperature can get to about 10°C. Through January, which is the coldest month of the year, it may sometimes drop to 6.3°C. Maximum temperature is 19°C. There might be a very rare spell of rain and no prospects of snowfall in Phuntsholing.
