Best time to visit Nepal

Some told me that, the best time to visit Nepal is just in Spring and Autumn; however, just like in Bhutan, there is actually no best time to travel to such the nation as it is extraordinary all year round and each year has its own unique beauty, I believe. In fact, the traveling season in Nepal is divided into two parts which are peak-season (spring and autumn) and low-season (summer and winter). In Spring and Autumn when the weather is dry and the sky is clear, thousands of visitors across the world excitingly travel to Nepal to high on life, but in summer and winter when the temperature is high and low (respectively), Nepal will see a drop in visitors, I mean why don’t you take this opportunity to plan a Nepal tour itinerary heading to this incredible country when it is less crowded than it used to be in Spring and Autumn. Generally, all I want to say is that Nepal worth to visit all year round.

Peak Season to Visit Nepal

Spring in Nepal

Spring begins in Nepal from March to May and it is the second best time for a tour itinerary to Nepal. During this time, the weather is warmer and Rhododendron starts to bloom making a good condition for a trekking trip. Besides, the valleys in spring are incredibly beautiful, especially after the ice has thawed. However, a drawback of spring is that the trekking trails are constantly busy, which means you will bump into lots of people around the world. It sounds great for some but bothers those preferring to have nature to themselves. Spring is also the time of the festival, so do not miss an opportunity to enjoy Holi festival, celebrated across every cities and town of Nepal in March as well as Nepalese New Year in April and Rhododendron festival. spring - best time to visit nepal

Autumn in Nepal

Autumn in Nepal begins from September to November and this time is considered as the best time to have a tour itinerary to Nepal, especially trekking. It will be your opportunity to experience the manifold of festivals and nature with vibrant colors of the vegetation that has strongly grown up through the monsoon season. If you travel to Nepal in October, do not forget to get into Nepal’s biggest festivals, Dashain and Tihaar falling during this period. What’s more, in this time of the year, the popular trails will be crowded, so if you want to enjoy tranquility and serenity, choose off the beaten path treks. autumn - best time visit nepal tour itinerary

Low Season to Visit Nepal

Summer in Nepal

Summer in Nepal begins from June to September. Normally, summer would be the peak-traveling season; however, in the monsoon season in Nepal, it is not ideal to have a tour to this country as it starts rain within 1 – 2 hours a day at night, especially if there is the worst day, it can rain all day. However, if it rains at night, you will have a chance to experience the stunning view in the day after. It is not great to go trekking in summer, but Everest Base Camp trek is still available; however, please expect rain in the first few days. Besides this drawback, there is an advantage for you that sightseeing in Nepal during this period is great as it offers a quieter ambiance than peak seasons and the Marsyangai Valley and Tilicho Lake are incredibly gorgeous this time with their lush greenery and great views. summer - best time visit nepal tour itinerary packages

Winter in Nepal

Winter begins in Nepal from December to February and it brings cold, dry weather and occasional snow in the mountains. The skies are clear and there is little to no rain, then I am sure that for those loving adventure, this is the best time to enjoy trekking to the Himalaya, Annapurna mountain ranges and exploring Nepal’s beautiful culture at the high altitude. Step by step toward the slope, feel the cold creeping into your warm body, marvel at the stunning view of the mountain ranges, then your Nepal tours would be the most memorable experience that you have ever had in your life. To enjoy a Nepal tour itinerary in winter, you should bring warm layers and jackets as well as sleeping bags if you go trekking.

Perhaps, there is no rule in there as you can easily experience the chaotic traffic occurring every day, especially in the weekend on the Winding Hilly Road as people drive by the way they want. In my tour itinerary in Nepal, I rarely saw if there was the police. Generally, it is true that if you can drive in Nepal, you can drive anywhere in the world. traffic in nepal tours
