When to go to Nepal, Best Time
Our evaluation by month
Nepal, located between India and China, is crossed by the imposing Himalayan range that includes the highest peaks in the world: Everest, K2 and more. Its territory is mainly mountainous but with very different slopes. It is rich in streams, fed by the abundant snow on the high mountain peaks and by the monsoons, which end their journey in the Indian river Ganges. Travel to Nepal is often combined with a tour of Tibet, the autonomous region of China.

Nepal's climateis divided into climatic zones according to altitude, with a subtropical climate in the flatter areas, a temperate climate in areas at altitudes between 1000 and 2500 meters. and a severe climate beyond these quotas.
There is a monsoon season that greatly influences the climate during the months between May and mid-October, rainfall falls more abundantly on the eastern side of Nepal and is concentrated throughout the country, especially in the months of July and August. The rainiest city is Pokhara due to its geographical position close to the mountain range. Temperatures in the flat areas are mild during the winter and very hot and humid during the summer. As altitude increases, temperatures decrease, but remain entirely acceptable in the intermediate zones around 1500 meters, as in Kathmandu, which has not excessively rigid winters and summers a little less hot than the plains. Above 2500 m. and on the peaks temperatures drop many degrees below zero, especially at night and during the winter.
The best time to travel to Nepal is from November to April to avoid the monsoon period; however, be aware of the high temperatures and the onset of heat in the months of March and April for those who particularly suffer from it.
