Nepal Tourism and Travel Guide

Crammed between India and Tibet, Nepal is a country that packs in enough to keep travellers busy and on their toes. This adventure nirvana is home to the famous Annapurna trek, the Everest Basecamp trek and many other accessible trails in the Himalayas. Away from trekking, you can kayak, bungee jump, paraglide, go on a mountain biking escapade and indulge in canyoning, all against some dramatic mountain scenery. But that’s not all you can do on your Nepal trip. There is a lot for culture buffs, who will enjoy the country’s synchronicity with its traditions and roots. Walking around Kathmandu’s medieval city squares will bring you face to face with the city’s fabulous palaces, temples, stupas and shrines. And the best part – Nepal tourism is backpacker-friendly, meaning that whatever you do, it will be easy to stay within budget.

Best Time to Visit Nepal

Peak Season to visit Nepal is from late September to late November, when the weather is dry and clear, and it is neither too cold or hot.

Shoulder Season: March to April, spring season, sees warm weather and rhododendrons flowering in the hills. It is a good time to see Nepal and its wildlife, and also trek on its trails.

Off-season: Monsoon season, from June to September, brings with it heavy clouds that limit mountain views and landslides that block trails and paths. If your flight isn’t cancelled and you manage to make it inside the country, then you are rewarded with massive discounts on hotels and accommodation.
