Climate

Climate: Nepals weather is generally predictable and pleasant. There are four climatic seasons: March-May (spring), June-August (summer), September-November (autumn) and December-February (winter). The monsoon is approximately from the end of June to the middle of September. About 80 per cent of the rain falls during that period, so the remainder of the year is dry. Spring and autumn are the most pleasant seasons; winter temperatures drop to freezing with a high level of snowfall in the mountains. Summer and late spring temperatures range from 28C (83F) in the hill regions to more than 40C (104F) in the Terai.

In winter, average maximum and minimum temperatures in the Terai range from a brisk 7C (45F) to a mild 23C (74F). The central valleys experience a minimum temperature often falling bellow freezing point and a chilly 12C (54F) maximum. Much colder temperatures prevail at higher elevations. The Kathmandu Valley, at an altitude of 1310m (4297ft), has a mild climate, ranging from 19-27C (67-81F) in summer, and 2-20C (36-68F) in winter.


Required clothing : Lightweight and tropical clothes with umbrella are advised for June to August. Between October and March, lightweight clothes are worn in Kathmandu, with a coat for evenings and warm clothing for the mountains.
