The land of legends   
Nepal is a small landlocked country with a diversity of natural and cultural wealth you will find in few places on earth. The land rises abruptly from the sweltering Terai plains in the south at 60 meters above sea level to the freezing heights of the Himalayan in the north well above 8000 meters culminating in the highest point on earth, Mt. Everest at 8848 meters - with lush sub- tropical forests, green hills and valleys in between - within a distance of a meter 200 km.

The tale of the country dates back to the time when the Gods and goddesses communed with the mortals. Religion and festivals are an integral part of every day life here. People still respect centuries old culture and tradition and history still lives on here among the numerous beautiful temples, monuments and palaces of exquisite art and architecture.  

This varied landscape offers a fascinating array of cultural experience, sightseeing and adventure opportunities.

CLIMATE

Nepal has four major seasons, namely:

1.   Winter: December February.  Feature: cold in the morning but sunny and pleasantly warm in the day with clear blue sky. Excellent season for a general Nepal tour, but it cam be quite cold during treks to Nepal Himalayas and even snow in areas of high altitude treks.

2.   Spring: March May. Feature: cool throughout the day.  Excellent season for trekking too. A great season for colorful flowers and birds.

3.   Summer: June August. Features: Gets warm in the daytime and monsoon rain starts from mid July till August. The monsoon rain help to cool the city during summer and the wet climate compensates for the beautiful greenery all around. 

4.   Autumn: September November. Features: cool breeze keeps the country cool throughout the day.  Post monsoon rains could last till late September. Probable the best season to visit Nepal for a general tour or even for a trek or rafting tour.       

In general the most preferred time for traveling in Nepal is from mid-September - right after the monsoon all the way through April. This does not mean that May through September is the wrong time to visit Nepal. During these seasons the beautiful scenery is further enhances by the greenery all around and Nepal also provides an ideal gate way to Tibet where these months are the most preferred time to travel there.
