Good to Know
When to go
October to November is a good time to visit Nepal, when the air is crisp and clear, and the country is lush and green following the monsoon.
February to April is also a good time of the year, when the weather is warming and many flowers are in bloom. Some haze does set in by April obscuring mountain views.
The weather is clear but chilly in December and January.
May and early June are the warmest months, and the monsoon is prevalent from the middle of June to September. At 4000′ the Kathmandu Valley is relatively temperate. Chitwan in the Terai region is warm and can get quite hot by April.
What to Wear
If you want to keep yourself cool in the Indian sun, a good supply of cotton clothing is essential along with a comfortable pair of open sandals. An effective pair of sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat will protect you against the strong rays, and it is advisable to use a high factor sun cream. In the cooler months, you will require some warm clothes such as light sweaters, jackets or shawls for the evenings. If your tour takes you to the mountain regions, then you will require warmer clothes. As it can sometimes warm up during the days, layers are always a good option along with comfortable walking shoes. For visits to the Game Parks, we recommend wearing light woollens and a windcheater as the early morning excursions can be quite chilly, with heavier clothing during the winter months of November to February. Khakis, browns or olive greens are best for blending into the environment.
When visiting places of worship and mausoleums there are certain religious customs to be observed. As a token of respect, it is customary to remove your footwear before entering all temples (a pair of light socks is useful if you prefer not to go barefoot), and dress should be fairly conservative, i.e. shorts are not really acceptable. In Jain and Hindu temples leather goods such as belts, shoes and bags will not be permitted.
