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 rainy season is gone and the weather becomes extremely pleasant. Temperature remains between 26 degrees celsius and 14 degrees mostly during the month of October, and during December, the temperature drops to 4 degrees Celsius. 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. This ensures a safe travel for visitors coming from across the world. Also, the popular Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival takes place in Nepal during the month of December. For nature-lovers, the best time to visit Nepal is during the months of March and April because during this season, rhododendrons are in full bloom and the entire valley looks absolutely stunning.
March-May (24°C to 12°C):
During March to May, Nepal experiences spring in its air. And, as the spring rolls into summer, the temperature in the plains and the valleys get really hot. 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-August (27°C to 18°C):
June to August is the monsoon season in Nepal. This is not a very good time to visit Nepal as the temperature is filled with humidity. Accompanied by 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.
September-November (25°C to 9°C):
From September to November, Nepal experiences the 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.
December-February (18°C to 2°C):
From December to February, there is winter in Nepal. At the higher altitudes, it is really cold. 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 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 NepalTravel Agent given good response. But cab provided for pokhara is not in good condition. Also driver is not cooperative, not understanding our communication which resulted we didn't satisfied that part of the tour which covers 60 percent of our tour, due to that particular cab and driver. The cab given troubles in between mid way of our journey which we feel bad. I suggest next pilgrims should check communication of cab driver and check condition of cab before starting long journeys. Rest travel agent is very cooperative and flexible. Agent is given good response and cooperation in every need. My family enjoyed with Everest mountains drive by flight round trip. It is worth seeing.
Trip to NepalThe whole trip was fantastic and I would surely recommend Sumit Keyal from Snowyoda to all my friends and family. The hotels, cab & driver and the selection of places to visit was awesome. We had an amazing trip and a memorable experience. 5 stars to Snowyoda.

Trip to NepalOverall a good experience, Sarankot..Himalaya view was the best thing of my Nepal visit
Trip to NepalOur travel was nice with Snowyoda. They were very helpful in whatever I had asked them to arrange during the trip. Good selection of hotels too. Just felt they could have directed us a little in a better way in terms of timings. For e.g. what time Pashupati temple is opened - first time we went it was closed already and the second time also it was closed, we waited for an hour for darshan. They need to prepare the itinerary in such a way so that we just don't touch the location but also view it properly. In the end also it got a little mismanaged as cab was not available and we had to go to airport on regular taxi (Snowyoda informed the hotel) wherein AC cab was promised throughout the trip.
Trip to NepalBest organized tour. Timely guidance by Roshan and always ready to help. When we replanned our tour Janakpur, he did so instantly. Praised. Due to bad weather, we couldn't travel to Muktinath. Rest was fine
