  4. Best time to visit Nepal

    Best time to go:

    In general, there are the two most favorable seasons of year to visit Nepal, that is during the pre-monsoon season (March, April, May, Mid June) and post-monsoon season (Mid-September, October, November). Both tend to be fairly fine weather, and to provide pleasant conditions for trekking, rafting and sightseeing in Nepal.

    But for trekking in Nepal, it is still possible during the monsoon months (mid-June, July, August, mid-September) the rain-shadow areas of the upper Marsyandi and Kali Gandakivalleys, and Dolpo receive far less rain than the Khumbu or Annapurna areas.

    During the winter conditions can also be good although much colder, but be aware that on occasions in January, February and March the higher passes and valleys are sometimes unreachable owing to snow fall.
