October is the perfect month to visit Nepal with pure, clear air and the best views of the great Himalayan range as a backdrop to the rest of the country.

Nepal offers so much more than just superb walking terrain. Explore the spectacular scenery, glacier-fed rivers and isolated villages but also spend time searching for wildlife. Four of the big five can be seen in Nepal; rhino, tiger, leopard and elephant in the lush jungles.

For timeless cultural and artistic heritage see Pokhara, the old city of Kathmandu and the hilltop stupa of Swayambunath.

Where to stay in October?

Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge is in a gorgeous location, on hilltop ridge more than 1,000 feet above the Pokhara Valley. It is the essence of tranquility and ideal for treks, community visits and bird viewing. Be sure to enjoy the infinity pool with its surreal view of the Annapurna and Machapuchare range.
