Best Time to Visit Nepal

What is the best time to visit Nepal? Our destination experts share an overview. 

Nepal has a skyline dominated by some of the world’s highest mountain peaks. There is something magical and surreal about this country that has to be seen to be understood. At times both modern and ancient and filled with Himalayan allure and traditions, there is also a lush spread of jungles and forested plains, which are home to majestic tigers and one-horned rhinoceros. Draped majestically along the greatest heights of the Himalayas, Nepal is where the ice-cold of the mountains meets the steamy heat of the Indian plains. It’s a land of yaks and yetis, stupas (religious monuments), sherpas (Tibetan ethnic people). and some of the best trekking on earth. BBC Travel lists Nepal as one of the 50 places to visit before you die.

The best time to visit Nepal is during the months of October and November. The monsoon is just over, which creates magnificent green and lush vegetation as well as clean air – perfect to explore the country in all its beauty. This means, of course, that the view of the Himalaya peak at this time is almost perfect. Even the temperatures are still very mild.

The weather is very predictable. There are four seasons in Nepal:

  • Spring from March to May
  • Summer from June to August
  • Autumn from September to November
  • Winter from December to February. The monsoon season lasts from late June to mid September, while it is relatively dry the rest of the year.

Best travel time for Nepal travel:

  • Main season: February-April, mid-September-November
  • Low season: May
  • Not recommended: June-mid September
