What is the best time to visit Nepal?

Despite very low temperatures and snowfall, winter is the best season to visit and enjoy Nepal in all its spirit. Being a Himalayan country, Nepal during this time is serene and beautiful.

December - March (Winter)

Winters in Nepal can get really cold. Trekkers need to be well prepared, as snow can be encountered on high-altitude treks. Visiting the Everest Base Camp during this time is an experience that will resonate. However, due to snowfall, certain regions in the high altitude regions may be closed or inaccessible.

The monsoon clouds cover most of the Himalayan ranges and thus the scenic of the beauty of the place cannot be enjoyed at this time. It may not rain throughout the day, but it rains almost everyday leaving the roads muddy and damp. Landslides are very common during these months and thus caution is advised.

Summers in Nepal, just like the rest of the subcontinent, are very hot and exhausting. However, due to altitude and proximity to the mountain ranges, these months are not as humid here as they are in the rest of the subcontinent.
