The Weather on tours
Generally, bad weather does not affect your travel to visit different cities in Nepal. You can visit the heritage sites at any time during the year but going to the Nagarkot and Sarangkot hill stations requires good weather to see Mountain’s vista. Nepal welcomes beautiful clear skies and sunny, fresh air, and incredible views.
January, February, March, April, May, September, October, November, and December are perfect months to discover the town. They are the best months to visit multiple sites tours as dry days make city tours easier and offer good visibility.
Likewise, you can also tour on monsoon days but whether often gets cloudy and rains, therefore, we recommend you to go with a raincoat or umbrella.
