Best Time to Visit Nepal Tour with Kids

Planning a Nepal tour with kids requires considering the best time to visit, ensuring that the weather conditions are favorable for the various activities you intend to partake in. Nepal experiences four main seasons, each offering unique experiences. However, for families travelling with children, the spring and autumn seasons are generally the most recommended times to visit due to their mild weather and clear skies. Relax Getaways emphasises the importance of choosing the right season for your family's adventure in Nepal, making your experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

Spring (March to May)

  • Considerations: As it's peak season, some popular destinations can be crowded. Booking accommodations and activities in advance is advisable.

Autumn (September to November)

  • Weather: Autumn is another peak season for visiting Nepal. The post-monsoon period leaves the countryside fresh and green, with clear skies and pleasant temperatures.

  • Activities: It's an excellent time for trekking, wildlife safaris in Chitwan National Park, and participating in cultural festivals like Dashain and Tihar, offering families a deeper insight into Nepali culture.

  • Considerations: Similar to spring, popular trekking routes and tourist sites can be busy during this season, so early planning is crucial.

Summer/Monsoon (June to August)

  • Weather: The monsoon season brings heavy rains, resulting in lush landscapes but also causing landslides and travel disruptions. Humidity levels rise, and temperatures can be hot, especially in the Terai region.

  • Activities: It's a good time for cultural tours in the Kathmandu Valley, as the rain is usually limited to late afternoon or evening showers. However, outdoor activities might be limited.

  • Considerations: If traveling during this season, pack waterproof gear and be flexible with your travel plans due to potential weather-related disruptions.

Winter (December to February)

  • Weather: Winters can be cold, especially in the mountains, with snowfall at higher altitudes. However, the lower regions and the Kathmandu Valley remain relatively mild.

  • Activities: Winter is suitable for sightseeing and cultural tours in the Kathmandu Valley and other lower altitude areas. It's also a quiet season for those looking to avoid crowds.

  • Considerations: If planning treks or high-altitude activities, ensure you're well-prepared for cold conditions. Many higher altitude trekking routes may be inaccessible due to snow.
