Best Time To Visit
Autumn (Sept to Nov) and spring (March to May) are the best seasons for Nepal World Heritage Site Tour. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding clear sky.
During winter (Dec, Jan, and Feb) could also be another great option. However, the temperature during winter could go down to 2 degree. Trekking in the summer or Monsoon seasons (June to Aug) will be affected by rain but the summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
You don’t need any special gear for touring around Nepal. Suitable attire for men would include long sleeved shirts and long trousers. Women should wear long skirts or a sari. Loose fitting trousers are becoming widely accepted too. Shoulders and chest areas should remain covered.
You may buy hiking gears for your friends and family while you are here in Kathmandu. Gears found here are locally manufactured (hence a lot cheaper) in some famous stores in Kathmandu.
