Here are the best seasons to visit Nepal:

01

Winter in Nepal

Winter in Nepal is usually dry and comes with a great drop in the temperatures. Owing to the high altitude, the months of December till late February experience really pleasant and cozy days but extremely cold nights. These cold months experience an average of 15mm rainfall, so occasional pour downs are a part and parcel of life in Nepal during winters.

One great reason to choose the winter time to explore Nepal is that you will find the places and treks less crowded. During this time, you can go to explore the amazing wildlife of Nepal in Chitwan and Bardia National Parks. Apart from these, must visit places in Nepal with a different wintery charm are Mustang Valley, Ilam, Nagarkot etc., with the inclusion of experiences like Mardi Himal Trek and jungle safaris.

With the beginning of the months of June, summer in Nepal arrives with the monsoon in tow. In Nepal, it does not rain the entire day in Monsoon, but it does pour down at least once in a day, and it most probably happens in the night time because of the altitude and topography. Shrouding the view of the high mountains by clouds, the summer season stays in the country from the end of May towards the end of August.

With temperatures going as high as 30 degrees, a good portion of this time remains warm, wet and humid because of the rains. The best time to do a lot of things, a Nepal honeymoon tour experience forms a good excuse to explore this place when the sun is out in this Himalayan country.

With the days longer and pleasant, spring in Nepal is a rather bright set of months. With many flowers blooming and meadows gaining a wide variety of color, the months between March and May are the most perfect months for witnessing the beauty of Nepal and have experiences like trekking. The rains are not here yet during these months, but with the onset of monsoon, the region does experience quite a good amount of rainfall towards the end of May.

Considered to be the best season for the great Everest base camp trek, spring months are also the best season to visit the Mustang Valley, Kathmandu, Pokhara and Nagarkot.

Monsoon in Nepal

Monsoon in Nepal

Monsoon in Nepal means rains, not necessarily heavily but pleasantly. Making up for about 60% of the rainfall in the entire year, monsoons are considered to be not a suitable time to explore the treks of Nepal, but is one of the best time for sightseeing in the countryside and the major cities.

Because of it being off-season, the months from June to a majority of August experience less tourism in the area, meaning you can easily get a quieter and more fun time exploring the country. The hills become greener, and with all the dust washed away, the mornings become clearer and thus perfect for sightseeing.

During these times, alongside the beauty of the cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara, great experiences like the Upper Mustang Valley, Dolpa Circuit, Rara Lake, Lumbini, Bardiya and Langtang are great places and treks to explore.
