When to go to Nepal

Nepal is a world-renowned destination for hiking and climbing, but it’s also an excellent travel destination for nature lovers and those who appreciate medieval architecture. The country is home to towering mountains, flowing rivers, stunning villages, and ancient Buddhist monasteries.

Here are some tips on when to go to Nepal:

If you’re looking for trails that will take you into the heart of the Himalayas, visit during the spring or autumn months. April through October is considered the best time to see Nepal’s spectacular peaks and valleys. However, weather conditions can change rapidly in this region, so be prepared for anything! November through March is also a good time to visit as temperatures remain comfortable throughout the day. If you want to avoid crowds while enjoying Nepali countryside, consider visiting in late winter or early spring when tourist numbers are lower.

If you’re interested in experiencing more of Nepali culture without having to hike too much or venture out into potentially dangerous terrain, consider choosing one of the many popular destinations located near Kathmandu. These destinations include Chitwan National Park and Lumbini Wildlife Sanctuary. Both offer wonderful opportunities to see monkeys and tigers in their natural habitats as well as explore charming colonial towns filled with vendors selling handcrafted goods. Travelers who don’t feel up for long hikes can instead take guided tours throughout these towns which run from around US$25 per person.

Getting around in Nepal

Getting around in Nepal can be a bit tricky if you aren’t familiar with the local geography. The country is very mountainous, so getting from one point to another can be a long and arduous journey. There are also few paved roads, so transportation tends to be by bus, taxi or bicycle.

The best way to get around is to purchase a Nepali Rupee card (Nepali currency) which will give you 10, 20 or 50 rupees for each use. You can also buy travel passes for popular tourist destinations such as Pokhara and Kathmandu. It’s always important to have some cash on hand in case of emergencies, since there isn’t much commercial activity outside of major tourist destinations.

Finally, it’s important to remember that Nepali drivers are notoriously reckless and it’s not uncommon for them to drive at speeds well over the limit. It’s also important to avoid traveling alone outside of major tourist destinations, since mugging and robbery are rampant in rural areas.

Nepal accommodation

Nepal accommodation is a huge topic. There are so many places to stay and so much information available on the internet that it can be hard to know where to start. This guide will help you find the perfect place to stay in Nepal, based on your needs and budget.

If you’re looking for budget accommodations, consider staying in a guesthouse or bed and breakfast. These options are typically cheap, but they may not have all the amenities of a hotel. Be sure to ask about included services, like breakfast or laundry service.

If money is no object, consider checking out one of Nepal’s top luxury resorts. These lodges usually offer great facilities and excellent service at a price that most travelers can afford. However, make sure to book well in advance as these places tend to fill up quickly!

Finally, don’t forget about Airbnb! Nepalese homeowners often rent out rooms or entire homes through this site, which can be an affordable option if you’re looking for something more spacious than a guesthouse or hotel room. Just be sure to read the reviews first before booking – sometimes people report bad experiences that didn’t happen to them, so it’s important to do your research!

Nepal food & drink

Nepali cuisine is a mix of indigenous and Central Asian influences. There are plenty of dishes to try, but some of our favorites include momos (dumplings), bhajias (rice and lentil curry), masala dosa (savory crepes with spiced potatoes), chow mein, naan bread and tandoori chicken. There are also lots of fruit juices, lassi (sweet yogurt drink) and chai teas available. Nepalese wines are especially good, with a range from dry to sweet. Be warned: Nepali food can be quite spicy!

If you’re looking for something alcoholic to quench your thirst, then Nepal has you covered too. Popular drinks include chai tea, mint tea, thukpa (a kind of cold drink made from maize flour and milk) and lassi. And if you’re really thirsty, there’s always sangria or flip flops!

Health & safety in Nepal

In addition to the health and safety concerns that visitors to any country must take into account, travelers in Nepal should be aware of local health and safety practices. For example, avoid walking around town at night; always use common sense when dealing with food or drink; and be cautious about camping or hiking in remote areas. The Nepalese government has taken measures to make travel in the country as safe as possible, but accidents can still occur (particularly in rural areas). Always contact your tour operator or hotel before departing for Nepal to get recommendations on specific health and safety precautions that you should take.
