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.
