weather in Nepal plays a significant role in how much you enjoy your trip. Especially in Nepal, it will determine your travel plans as roads can be blocked by landslides during the rainy season, and flights can be delayed or canceled due to bad weather. So, your travel plans should be designed keeping these obstacles in mind, with extra days built-in or alternate routes planned to combat them.
Heavy rains can cause floods and landslides, and heavy snow can get you stuck. Therefore, this is also a safety issue, and it is important to know when and what weather conditions are expected before starting your trip.
Nepal is best to be described as being temperate in general. There are four seasons, from hot and rainy summers to cool and dry winters.
Spring (March-May) is pleasant, and winter’s cool breeze meets the summer’s warm sunshine. The flowers bloom, and the skies are clear, making it perfect for exploring the countryside. The weather is excellent for all kinds of adventure outdoor activities. You can go for high-altitude trekking, Nepal City Tour, Sightseeing, and even mountaineering. In the Spring season, the Manaslu Circuit Trek is excellent for you to do adventure outdoor activities.
The average temperature is between 8° C and 28° C. There is almost no rainfall. The days are long, with an average of 13 hours of daylight.
Winter (December-February) is cool at low altitudes and may snow at high altitudes. In these places, streams and lakes are frozen most of the time, giving the trekking trails you can visit a pristine look. In this winter season, the Nepal City Tour is excellent for outdoor activities.
The sun loses most heat, but the sky is clear and blue. Average temperatures vary between 3°C and 19° C. You can expect an average of 10 to 11 hours of daylight in the shortest number of days. There is little rainfall in the Eastern regions, but it rains slightly more frequently in the country’s Western region, with an average rainfall of 5-20 mm.
Summer (June-September) is a hot and humid event unless timely monsoon rains cool down and deal with the humidity to some extent. However, it also means that there may be no clear blue sky between July and August in most cases.
The average temperature is between 19° C and 27° C. Average rainfall during this period fluctuates between 150 mm and 350 mm, with an average rainfall of up to 960 mm in some places. The days are also long, with 13 to 14 hours of sunshine.
Autumn (October-November) is the best time to Trekking in Nepal. The average temperature is between 18° C, and 22° C. Cool winds blow in the mornings and nights, and daytime trips are accompanied by warm sun and blue skies. It doesn’t rain much; the average rainfall is 7-50 mm. You can expect about 11 hours of sunlight.
Besides all the adventure, this is a perfect time to explore Nepal’s beautiful culture. Some major festivals of Nepal like Dashain, Tihar & Chhath lie in this season. Thus, you can tour in great weather and celebrate these wonderful festivities.
