Best Time To Visit Kathmandu, Nepal

Best Time To Go To Kathmandu

  • Avoid: Although Kathmandu has a pleasant climate all year long, the winters are chilly and the rains are consistent enough to hinder the travelling which makes spring and summer the best time to visit Kathmandu.
  • Tourist season: March to May is the summer season and the temperature rarely rises above 34°C and it hardly rains, so this is the most sought after tourist season of Kathmandu. The months September to November are also a good option as the weather is pleasant and there are many festivities that you can experience.

The typical Kathmandu weather is warm and the nights and mornings are cooler paving a way for a comfortable voyage.  The rains and winters although best avoided add a unique charm to the place.
