Best Time To Visit Nepal
Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination
The best time to visit Nepal is during the months of October, November and December. During this time, the rains disappear from the sky and leave it all clear and brilliant blue. This weather in Nepal is perfect for outdoor sightseeing, trekking and adventure sports like paragliding or bungee jumping and for photography sessions as well. The visibility allows transportation between cities across mountainous terrains much easier too, and the risks of landslides recede significantly. Nepal experiences five different climatic zones across its land area. The difference is mostly influenced by altitude since the latitudinal expanse of the country is not much.
Go through this below guide basis month to figure out the best time to visit Nepal.
During March to May, Nepal experiences spring in its air. And, as the spring rolls into summer, temperature in the plains and the valleys get really hot, with temperature often reaching to almost 40°C. The chill goes away one day at a time. However, in the lowlands of Kathmandu valley, weather in May is mildly warm. And, as one goes up the mountains, the heat is replaced by colder winds.
As the hills are covered with rhododendrons, orchids and other flowers during the spring season, this is the best time of the year to cherish nature along with wildlife.
June to August is the monsoon season in Nepal. This is not a very good time to visit Nepal as temperature goes up to 30 degree celsius filled with humidity. Accompanied with everyday rains and occasional thunderstorms in the valley, sightseeing tours are washed away in the rain, and trekking and hiking routes are too dangerous to travel on.
From September to November, Nepal experiences autumn season with an average temperature of 15 degree celsius. The rains leave the valleys lush green and the skies brilliant blue. As a result, the landscape of Nepal gets a complete makeover after being roasted in the summer heat. This is the best season to visit Nepal, not only for the weather but for festivities as well.
Get on an excursion to Chitwan and Bardia to explore the wildlife of Nepal during this period.
From December to February, there is winter in Nepal. At the higher altitudes, it is really cold. The temperature gets below 0°C and snowfall occurs as well. The temperature in the lower plains is comfortably cooler. If you are visiting the lower points in Nepal, then winter too is perfect for visiting. Short, low elevation treks can be done without any problem.
Best time to visit Nepal for festivals:
September-October is already the best months to visit Nepal because of the climatic conditions. As an added bonus, Nepal celebrates Durga Puja during this time. The tenth day, known as Vijaya Dashami in Bengal, Dussehra in the rest of India and Dashain in Nepal is a huge festival over there. The festival of Diwali or Tihar follows closely behind, making the month of autumn very auspicious in the whole country.
Climate in Nepal
Summer Season in Nepal
Summer begins in the lower altitudes as mild and pleasant, with a temperature of around 22-25°C. But as days pass, it keeps getting hotter. Nepal weather in April is the last when it stays ideal for a visit. After that one should consider visiting in the autumn only.
Monsoon Season in Nepal
In Nepal, monsoon follows the hot summer months as a respite to the residents but is a source of worry to the travellers. From June to August and early September, clouds hover over the valley and bring rainfall in heavy showers all over.
Winter Season in Nepal
Up above in the high mountains, Nepal weather in December and January is about snowfall and occasional blizzards. But down in the valley, the trip can be enjoyed with some heavy jackets and scarves.

Trip to NepalKathmandu drivers kept on changing and car was small and last day it was so hot and a/c was not working
Trip to Tamil NaduWe went on 5day/4night trip to Nepal. The trips were well arranged - hotels, cab driver, etc. Can't make any complaints.
Trip to NepalThank you ashirvad travels for putting up so much effort to make my nepal trip memorable . It was my first trip with my fiance outside india and we had a great time in nepal . I had a tough time while returning when our car broke down but u guys did a awesome job arranging a alternate vehicle in a very small time . The driver deepak was very nice and guided us throughout the trip . Special thanks to SUMIT MISHRA to take care of all our need before , and throughout the journey ,you are a big asset to the company ,keep up the good work bro . Breakfast in the hotels was a bit disappointing but rest was excellent. Once again thank you ashirvaad travels and the team .
Trip to NepalIt was such an amazing experience. Our driver Pravin was very kind, helpful and keep us safe during the tour. The staff of our hotels was so kind, welcoming, cheerful and respectful. Vikram, Suyog, and the rest of the team in Hotel Temple Inn in Kathmandu were so helpful, full of energy. Bravo to them
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeelingoverall good experience but in Darjeeling hotel service is not good. visit Nepal border.
Trip to Nepaltrip was good. the trip was good.all the arrangements were fine. but I think the chitwan hotel Royal Safari was way too expensive. I could have better options at their in that price also they charged too much for cultural program.
Trip to NepalThe overall experience of booking through Travel Triangle was quite good . The concept is effective , as one gets directed to specialists for region one is travelling to . The initial interactions with the portal are quite professional and transparent in that it provides one with several independant quotes to choose from . However , in our case the travel partner that we chose , M/s.TripMasters , could do with a little more expertise with respect to i) Knowledge about various tariiffs involved etc. In our case we ended up paying approx. extra 10 % for the Hotel at the last stage as one us was an NRI . The travel partner cannot say this was unknown to them as thte flight tickets booked by them was basis IDs which clearly indicated nationalities . ii) The travel partner should update themselves with local holidays & events etc. at the destination .In our case due to elections in Nepal we lost a whole day and paid extra on travel alterations. iii) It would also do well to employ drivers who spend long durations in transit with the travellers to be a little more knowledgeable about local culture etc. if not to the extent of being a tour guide . The choice of hotels was quite satisfactory and itinerary very well explained and adhered to except for the above , in this case . We realised that one need not be a professional mountaineer to experience the mountains . While in Nepal one should not return without experiencing the mountains.There are options that one can choose to experience mountain trekking . Travel Traingle provides ample travel options to choose from and one can tailor one's requirements to needs and be assured of reasonable charges according to ones need. .
Trip to NepalThough initially unhappy it was all well in the end. Mr. Amit and mr. Roshan made our trip memorable. They were very helpful and cooperative. I have no hesitation in recommending others to choose this organization for their travel needs. N. Chandrasekhar. Travel organization and weather God made our trip truly enjoyable. N. Chandrasekhar.
Trip to Nepalvisit was good & quite exiting.journey was comfortable with enowa car except poor road conditions in almost all part of NEPAL. VISIT TO MANOKAMNA TEMPLE ON CABLE CAR WAS EXCELLENT.ACCOMODATION OK EXCEPT AT LUMBINI BORDER WHICH WAS MUCH BELOW OUR EXPECTATIONS COMPARED TO POKHERA AND KATHMANDU.MY ADVISE TO OTHERS IS STAY AT LUMBINI OR IN BHARAHWA MARKET NOT ON BORDER.. VISIT TO MANOKAMNA TEMPLE AND MARKETING IN POKHERA
Trip to NepalVery good experience except one hotel Temple Inn. Have not got AC room. As per itinerary. Had good time with family.
