Nepal Tours Travel Tips

  • If you're planning to visit Nepal for hiking, be sure to have the appropriate climbing permits. Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in the world – most climbers only trek to the Everest base camps. Additional permits and experience are necessary for climbing up into the higher elevations.
  • Expect daily rain showers during the monsoon season, but if you're patient, the weather will clear up to explore the local attractions.
  • Many of the Nepal temples and shrines, especially in the Kathmandu Valley, were damaged during a devastating 2015 earthquake. Many of the sites are still rebuilding today.
  • There is a lot of traffic in Kathmandu. If you hire a taxi or tour guide, plan accordingly when traveling between landmarks.
  • Many local attractions are religious sites, so proper attire and behavior are necessary when visiting. Be sure to abide by all rules so that you can enjoy the sites respectfully.
  • Nepalese people are very friendly and welcoming to tourists. They love to talk and share about their culture, especially in the presence of foreigners.

Quick Facts

Nepal experiences all four seasons in addition to having a monsoon season. Planning a trip to the country means that you'll have a lot to consider when finding the best time to visit. Nepal's high season lasts from October to December, which overlaps two seasons.

  • Autumn – September to November – High Season

    Nepal weather is ideal during the Autumn months. Monsoon season is over, so it has a much drier climate. The moderate weather is also perfect for hiking – it's cool enough to endure a long day of climbing and warm enough to avoid extreme weather in the high elevations. The sky conditions are clearer for incredible views.

  • Winter – December to February – Low Season

    Winter is the coldest season, and the country receives significantly fewer travelers. One thing to note is that early December is still a great time to visit just before the cold weather arrives.

  • Spring – March to May – Good Season

    Springtime in Nepal has similar weather to the autumn, so it's one of the best alternative times to visit. Nepal has beautiful natural settings outside of the city, so visitors can experience when the flora blooms.

  • Summer – June to August – Low Season

    Many people avoid visiting Nepal in the summer because it coincides with the monsoon season. During these months, Nepal gets a lot of daily precipitation, lasting a few hours. One advantage of visiting during the summer is that it's more budget-friendly because of the low season.
