Message from Director General regarding Cyclonic Storm FANI

Good evening from Tourism Council of Bhutan!

We hope that this email finds you well.

This is with regard to weather advisory for all with special attention to tourists already on trekking programme.

The Cyclonic Storm ‘FANI’ has made landfall over Odisha coast (India) on 3rd May around 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM. Bhutan is very likely to receive heavy to very heavy rainfall over the southern, eastern and isolated places of central parts of the country while the rest of the country is likely to receive moderate to heavy rain during next 48 hours. Gusty wind with isolated thunderstorms is also very likely over the country during this period.  The system is expected to dissipate from 6th May.

Therefore all Bhutanese tour operators having tourists in country or scheduled to arrive next two days are advised to be vigilant and inform the tourists to be careful and prepared for bad weather especially those on trekking.

Call TCB at toll free number 2300 and 17124546 for report or help.
