  1. Peak Season

    September to November

    While many destinations rely on summer to draw the crowds, travellers descend upon Nepal in the autumn season when the summer monsoon has pushed through and the weather is dry and pleasant. Most importantly for the trekkers and the photographers, it’s when the country is at its clearest, offering great visibility of and in the mountains. September through November are the ideal months, the high season at times extending through December when the skies are clear and the temperatures are cooler. Another busy season is spring, from March through May, when the temperatures have warmed up a bit and the landscape comes alive with wildflowers. 

  2. Low Season

    June to September

    Hot and very wet weather is what you have to contend with visiting Nepal in the summertime. It rains daily and thunderstorms make occasional appearances in the evening. It doesn’t make for great trekking weather because of the obvious wet conditions as well as landslides and obstructed mountain views. However, it’s a good time to explore the cities, which are quieter. It’s also when the scenery is at its most dramatic, the rains bringing it lush vegetation and clearing away any air pollution. Additionally, if you can withstand the cold and only tackle lower elevation treks, the winter season (December to February) might be an option.
