Here are our tips for the best time to visit both Nepal and Tibet:

The Best Time to Visit Nepal

The climate in Nepal ranges from tropical to alpine, depending on the region. It's hot and humid in the southern regions, very pleasant in the Midlands, and extremely cold in the northern regions in winter, given that the altitudes go above 3300 meters.

Nepal has mildly warm temperatures in spring when the site of blossoms can make your experience truly charming. Try to avoid visiting in the summertime since this time is monsoon season in Nepal, so you can expect to experience a lot of rain and thunderstorms.

The best time to visit Nepal is definitely autumn . That's when all the rains have cleared, and the weather gets very pleasant. You can enjoy spectacular views of the mountains, especially if you want to engage in hiking and trekking.

Winters are not so bad either . They're mostly cool, but the days can be warm when it's sunny. It can get pretty cold in the northern regions, but everywhere else is pleasant.

If you're looking for a memorable trekking experience, and you don't mind cold weather, visiting Nepal in winter is your way to go. There are no rains, and there's very little snow, so nothing can prevent you from having a great visit.

The Best Time to Tour Tibet

The best time to travel to Tibet is spring . That's when the weather is the most comfortable, and the skies are completely clear, so you can marvel at all the natural beauties and enjoy the stunning mountain views. That's also the best time to book a tour to Mount Everest  and relish in all its glory.

Summer is the peak tourist season in Tibet, so you can't go wrong with that time of year as well. The weather is the warmest then, but it isn't without rain and clouds.

If you tour Tibet in the summer, you can expect rain a few days a week, but you can still engage in unforgettable trekking. However, thick clouds may prevent you from enjoying all the mesmerizing views of the mountains.

Autumns are charming in Tibet , as the greenery is still lush, and the clouds have cleared. Also, when the leaves start turning gold and red in October, the Tibetan Plateau transforms into a magical land straight out of a fairy-tale.

Traveling to Tibet in winter won't make your trip any less enjoyable if you don't mind cold weather, but it may prevent you from getting to every area you may want to visit. This is simply because the roads and tracks can be blocked from heavy snow.

Dear Ms. Pa***,

Thanks very much for your inquiry. From your travel time, here we recommend one 6 days Exploration of Legendary Ancient Cities group tour to you, and we currently have one departure date on 14th of November. Taking train from Lanzhou to Lhasa will cost you about 24 hours, and we are happy to help you book train ticket. Please kindly note that there is no "permit-only" or "accommodation-only" service, foreign tourists are not allowed to travel Tibet alone, you have to book a pre-organized tour including guide, car, and hotel as well. As you are only one person, joining a group tour is the most economical way. We will prepare guide, car, accommodation, Tibet permit for you. Applying for Tibet Permit requires copy of your passport and Chinese visa, and it usually takes about 15-20 days, if you want to join our tour, please send copy of your passport and visa to us quickly. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Best regards.
