When to travel

With two distinct seasons, dry and wet, Nepal is at its best from October through to December. This is when the monsoon, which runs from June to September, come to an end and the dry season begins, leaving the countryside green, lush and bursting with life. Mountain views are clear and crisp across the Himalayans.

Visitors going to Nepal in January and February should expect freezing temperatures in the evening but with this brings fewer crowds arguably making it a perfect time to discover the country. March, April and May see the temperatures begin to climb and the humidity reaching its height before the monsoon rains arrive. The springtime is warmer but cloud build-up over the Himalayan peaks occurs.
