Weather and Climate

Get to know about the climate and weather of Nepal.

In the climate of northern Nepal, summers are cool and winters are extreme, while in the south summers are blistering while winters are gentle to cold. Nepal has five seasons: spring, summer, storm, pre-winter, and winter.

While the climate of southern Nepal (Terai), summer temperatures surpass 40° C and are higher in certain territories, while winter temperatures run from 7°C to 23°C. In bumpy or mountainous districts, slopes, and valleys, summers are mild while winter temperatures can dive to below zero. The Kathmandu Valley has a charming atmosphere with normal summer temperatures of 20°C – 35°C and 2°C – 12°C in winter.

Normal temperatures in Nepal drop 6°C for each 1,000 m you gain in elevation.

The Himalayas go about as an obstruction to the virus winds blowing from Central Asia in winter and structure the northern limit for rainstorm downpours, leaving a few spots like Manang and Mustang rainfall free. 80% of the entire rainfall in Nepal is gotten during the rainstorm (June-September). Winter downpours are progressively articulated on the western slopes. The normal yearly precipitation is 1,600 mm; however, it shifts by eco-climatic zones, for example, 3,345 mm in Pokhara and beneath 300 mm in Mustang.

There is no occasional imperative on going in and through Nepal. Indeed, even in December and January, when winter is at its severest, there are remunerating splendid sun and splendid perspectives. Likewise, with a large portion of the trekking zones in Nepal, the best time to visit is during spring and pre-winter. Spring is the ideal opportunity for rhododendrons o sprout while the clearest skies are found after the rainstorm in October and November. In any case, Nepal can be visited for the entire year.
