Monsoon/Summer (June to August) in Nepal experiences a hot and humid climate. It is a period of sweltering temperatures and heavy rainfall. The hot and wet conditions during this time can dull your tour experience. The frequent rainfall will lead to slippery roads and limited visibility in the surroundings. The possibility of floods and landslides also increases during this time, affecting the tour. The dark rain clouds in the sky will lead to a gloomy environment. As the rainfall is recurrent, you need to constantly shelter from the rain to remain unwet. Just imagine that you are on a boat ride in Phewa Lake, and will drenching in the rain or carrying an umbrella let you enjoy the tour to the fullest?

Chitwan is the lowland Terai region with extremely hot temperatures during summer. The intense sunrays and hotness will cause you to sweat a lot. Touring while drowning in sweat is definitely not a fulfilling experience. But, if you are fond of heat and love to travel on hotter days, a summer tour of Nepal will give you the best experience.

But December to February is still promising for a unique tour experience if you can keep yourself warm and comfortable.

To suggest, spring from March to May and autumn from September to November are the best times for 7 days Nepal Tour. These seasons offer pleasant environments and optimal conditions for enriching outdoor exploration. Spring and autumn are favorable periods to tour Nepal, with stable weather conditions and milder temperatures. The average temperature during these times will range around 20 to 25 degrees Celsius. This will not cause you to sweat from heat or freeze from cold.

While autumn brings several festivals, the rush and vibrancy add excitement to the tour. Autumn and spring are popular traveling seasons, with the flow of travelers presenting a vibrant atmosphere during the tour.
