Weather
The difficulty with trekking here, aside from the high cost, is the weather. Unlike Nepal and Ladakh, the windows for good high-altitude trekking in Bhutan are short: about 3 weeks in April and 3-4 weeks in October. Although the official season extends longer, you have the best chances of clear weather and little snow in the second half of April or the first three weeks of October. There are several low-altitude "winter treks" however, which can be walked in other seasons.

Difficulty
The Jhomolhari trek is a strenuous trek and not for the faint-hearted.  It is best suited for seasoned trekkers with good physical fitness and exposure to high altitude trekking. To be able to enjoy the trek, participants are strongly encouraged to train for the trek at least 8 weeks before departure. The coldest temperature encountered on trek can be -10C or colder so good weather gear is required.  If you have saved up some money, in good shape, and well-prepared, you will have one of the best experiences imaginable.
