Also known as the 'Roof of the World', Nepal is a lovely Himalayan country where the snow-capped mountains disappear into the clouds like stairways to heaven. Apart from the mountain peaks, Nepal is also a major religious hub, housing pilgrimage sites for followers of Buddhism and Hinduism. The crime rate is also very low, making it a very safe travel destination.
Generally speaking, Nepal is divided into 11 states and 5 development regions. However, the basic divisions are dependent on the regional elevation. These are: Himalayas, Kathmandu Valley, Middle hills, Western Tarai and Eastern Tarai.
September - Late November is the best time to visit Nepal
The best time to visit Nepal is from late September to late November. However, it also depends a lot on the kind of activity or the places within the country that one hopes to explore. The autumn season is touted as the best time for trekkers who are rewarded with clear skies and breathtaking views. The next best time to visit Nepal is in the spring season from March-April. The rhododendrons are in bloom and the temperatures warm, yet not scorching hot. The Terai or southern region of the country offers a splendid display of flourishing wildlife and vegetation and trekking remains a favourite activity during spring. For trekkers’ autumn and spring, seasons work best, whereas, for those wishing a vacation in Kathmandu and low-lying areas the winter months are ideal. Nepal has four distinct seasons, and though it is a comparatively small country, it experiences extreme variation in temperature and climate across its various elevations.
