I want to visit Bhutan at the last week of this year.
Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan usually receives light snowfall in winter or early spring.
People would relate this phenomenon to global warming and its negative impacts. Bhutanese elders have a say that Thimphu was much colder in the past.
Average annual rainfall in thimphu
Children of this generation can only assume how much fun their elders must have had during their childhood days. We were told that they could make ice cubes just by keeping a container of water on a window sill. However, the March snowfall broke this trend. It has started in the early hours of 11th March.
Thimphu hotels and places to stay
When people woke up at dawn, they were surprised to see their city carpeted with clean white snow and muffled with fleecy clouds promising heavy snowfall. Consequently, places in lower altitudes got heavy rainfalls.
Bhutan people, who have been waiting for this, came out quickly to touch and feel delicately falling snowflakes. Ro in Bhutan, especially those passing through high altitude passes and hills like Dochula, Chelela, Pelela, and Yotongla remained closed for at least a day. People who were on the journey remained stuck in the middle.
Bhutanese could travel to see distant views of fresh white mountains and snow-filled valleys. Some Bhutanese remained inside their houses for the fear of getting caught up with cold having hot suja and other wintry Bhutan food. Prime Minister of Bhutan also advised all Bhutanese on Twitter to remain safe and warm during such weather.
I could see as many foreigners on various viewpoints as there were Bhutanese during the snowfall. Thimphu Sightseeing was unusually good.
Some Bhutanese photography enthusiasts were getting on higher gradient land to find the best views of Thimphu Bhutan points of interest. Some people were making short movies in their small cameras or mobile phones. Tourists were carrying their camera equipment and shooting photos in such Thimphu Bhutan weather. Some were making short movies. It appeared they were enjoying the different versions of Bhutan for a moment.
Great. you are now connected with druk trails!
Buddha Point, one of the main tourist attraction centers in Thimphu was beautiful during snowfall. Young people were seen making a snowman and some other small structures using snow. Some were fighting the game of snow-ball throws. In overall, Bhutan really celebrated heavy snowfall indespite being quite late.
For one week or so, almost all the profiles of Bhutanese were just about snowfall — starting from their selfies to short movies.

Some expressed their joys as heavy snowfall would help immensely in increasing electricity generation and thereby increasing revenue for the Royal Government of Bhutan. Well, your country is amazingly beautiful. Some of my friends have mentioned who had a chance to visit Bhutan about how impressed they were.

Thanks for expressing your love for Bhutan. Hope you visit Bhutan soon to test if those things you have heard and seen are true. Because I cannot say Bhutan is beautiful for sure. It varies from person to person.
