Nepal

Introduction

Nepal is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of bio-diversity due to its unique geographical position and altitudinal variation. The elevation of the country ranges from 60m at sea level to the highest point on earth, Mt. Everest at 8,848 m. all within a distance of 150 km ( 94 miles ) resulting into climatic conditions from Sub-tropical to Arctic.

With its diverse and rich natural beauty, Nepal, a tiny country in the Himalaya has a lot to offer.  Whether you are looking to indulge yourself in an adrenaline adventure, enjoy the world’s most dramatic landscapes, immerse yourself in the rich history and culture or just want to touch the soul of the Himalayas, Nepal has something for everyone.

Nepal is nirvana for mountain lovers as this tiny nation offers a wide range of iconic trekking trails to Everest, the Annapurnas and beyond. Each trekking route offers you a hot meal and a cozy lodge at different places in the trail, so that you can enjoy the challenges of trek as well as have a nice meal and warm sleep at the end of the day.

Climate & Weather

Nepal’s climate varies with its topography. It ranges from tropical to arctic depending upon the altitude. The Terai region, which lies in the tropical southern part of the country, for instance, has a hot, humid climate. The mid-land regions are pleasant almost all year around, although winter morning and nights are cool. The northern mountain region, around an altitude above 3,353 meters has an alpine climate with a considerably lower temperature and thin air in winter as can be expected. 

Nepal has four major seasons, namely,

  • Winter – December to February
  • Spring – March to May
  • Summer – June to August
  • Autumn – September to November
