Ideal Duration

Well, the duration of your stay primarily depends on how much time you have. Nevertheless, six days and seven nights are considered to be the ideal duration for a honeymoon at Nepal. Most of the travel agencies and resorts offer honeymoon packages comprising six days and seven nights, and therefore finding one with such duration will not be a difficulty. That said, it does not mean you cannot enjoy more of this tiny country's serenity and magic. You can definitely extend your stay as per your wishes.

Best Time to Honeymoon in Nepal

Nepal is a country which can be visited all the year round. The mountainous region experiences the influence of both maritime and continental factors, resulting in a climate which is soothing and enjoyable at all times of the year. The nation has five distinct seasons - summer, spring, rain, autumn and winter. The maximum temperature is usually 37 degrees Celcius whereas the minimum temperature is around 9 degrees Celcius. However, near the hills, the temperature even drops to below the freezing point at some places during winters.

With a temperature of around 22 degrees Celcius, spring strikes the country between March and May. Between June and September is the season of the summer monsoon, and the sky is usually overcast with dark grey clouds. The trees look lush green and attractive, and the rains are sometimes incessant. Next is the most awaited autumn when clear blue skies make for a stunning day. These are the months of October and November. Chilly gusts of wind are felt during December to February - the winter season in Nepal.
   
The best time to honeymoon in Nepal depends on what you are actually looking forward to. If you want to bask in the greenery of forests and get drenched in the monsoon rains, September is a good time. However, you might not get to view the mystic hills due to the incessant rain showers and would even need to drop the plan of trekking as the trails get covered with mud. That said, October and November are the best months to visit Nepal. The welcoming blue skies invite you to explore the mysteries of this place. Trekking is the most popular activity during this time of the year, and the majestic peaks of the mountain ranges can easily be spotted. March to April is also a nice time when the blooming of the Rhododendron flowers takes place - a perfect way to fall in love honeymooners!

Honeymooning in Nepal is as good as it gets since the packages here range from budget to economical to luxurious. You sure do not need to think much about your wallet because the activities are designed to suit every pocket. The hotel accommodation charges can be as low as NPR 2000 per night. For a more opulent stay, you can choose from a pool of various resorts - these have their accommodation charges starting from NPR 8000 per night. Moreover, during your stay, you also need to sort out expenses for multiple viewpoints and other attractions. The entry fee is usually in the range of NPR 100 - NPR 350. In case you have surplus money to spend, you can also include exciting excursions like mountain biking, trekking and canyoning. These generally come for about NPR 7000 to NPR 10,000 on a daily basis.
