New Destination, New Ways
Nepal is an adventure hotspot, however, sacred sites and rich forest life also comb its way here. The country of the Everest, Nepal is where the adventurists quench the thirst of thrill and experience the real adrenaline rush. The best thing about Nepal is that the adventure never ends here; although trekking and hiking do make the main attractions here, we cannot overlook the options of other adventure activities like rafting in a Nepali river; bungee jumping into a bottomless Himalayan gorge; canyoning, climbing, kayaking, paragliding and mountain biking.
Nepal Tours & Travel
Best Time To Visit
Between October and December is the best time to visit Nepal as the skies are generally clear and the views spectacular. The weather remains dry until about April. January and February can be very cold, especially at night, but will reward you with incredible panoramas and quieter trekking trails as there are fewer visitors. Late spring is a beautiful time to travel as the rhododendrons burst into bloom. From May, heat and humidity levels build until the monsoon rains arrive in June and the clouds obscure the glorious mountain views. Nepal celebrates festivals all year, so there is often a festival or pilgrimage taking place - ask your specialist for more details as the dates often change from year to year.
From late December to February, Nepal's weather is pleasant during the day but temperatures drop dramatically at night time; especially in the mountains. January is the coldest month.
In March, temperatures increase and the rhododendrons bloom. These months are ideal for trekking. May is one of the warmest months of the year.
The monsoon season occurs from June and ends in August. Days are quite warm (up to 30°C), wet and with high humidity. Due to Nepal’s topography, rains often occur at night, resulting in beautiful morning views.
As the monsoon ends in September, Nepal is adorned with beautiful clear skies, fresh air and incredible views. October and November are ideal months for trekking. The lush green landscapes following the rains are perfect for photography.

Nepal Travel Tips
- It is advised to always trek in groups or at lease with a partner. There are online forums where travelers can look for fellow-trekkers. This applies to everyone but especially women that are travelling single.
- Do not touch someone’s head or sit showing the bottom of your feet towards them as it is considered rude.
- Bring a universal plug and voltage adapter kit for your Electronics. Nepal uses 220V.
- It is likely that there may be an entrance fee to some of the common temples and public areas applicable only to foreigners ranging anywhere from 250R's – 700R's.
- There are daily scheduled power outages. Therefore, it is wise to bring flashlight along with you.
- Dress appropriately to the temples and avoid short clothes (especially ladies) all through the trip.
