Nepal Overview

Why Nepal: Set high in the Himalayas, with medieval cities and national parks teeming with rare animals, Nepal is renowned as much for its soaring mountains as it is for living history. Kathmandu and the surrounding valley brim with cultural and religious treasures, as well as vibrant markets and busy streets where traditional Nepalese life continues as it has for centuries.

When to Go: Nepal has two seasons: the dry season (from Oct – May) and the rainy, monsoon season (from Jun – Sep). Early spring (Mar – Apr) and late autumn (Oct – Nov) are the best times to visit, offering the clearest views and good weather for trekking. From Dec – Feb there is snow on the mountains with freezing temperatures at high altitudes, while the summer months of Jun – Aug can be uncomfortably hot.

Combine With: Neighbouring India or Bhutan, which both offer rich cultural experiences, stunning landscapes, trekking opportunities and wildlife viewing in national parks.

Getting There: Nepal tours begin in the capital, Kathmandu, which is served by the Tribhuvan International Airport, around 6 km from the city.
