Health and Vaccination
Although there are no statutory vaccination requirements for visiting Nepal, but we recommend protection against Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Tetanus and Polio. There was an outbreak of Meningitis in Kathmandu a few years ago, and although the risk is now officially stated to be very low, you may also like to be protected against this. Nepal, and Terai in particular, is in a malarial area, and you should take an appropriate prophylaxis.
Please consult your doctor or vaccination centre for up to date information. Once you are in Kathmandu we recommend CIWEC Clinic near Indian Embassy in Lainchaur. Visit www.ciwec-clinic.com.

Weather in Nepal
The best time to visit Nepal is from October to mid May when daytime temperatures at most altitudes are generally warm, the sky is clear much of the time and rain is an occasional occurrence. We reckon that from the middle of October to December is the best time for clarity of the air and mountain views.
January and February can be cooler with some early morning mists although daytime temperatures can be pleasant. March is much hotter with temperatures rising through. April and there can be cloud build up in the afternoon and occasional rainy days can be expected but this is more than compensated for by the flowers which bloom in spring. In autumn daytime temperatures will vary from 20ºC to 35ºC in the Kathmandu Valley and on the trip. In the early morning, evening and at night the temperatures will be cooler. In general, spring temperatures are about 5ºC higher than those in autumn are. Chitwan and the Terai are at much lower altitudes and temperatures are usually hot in the daytime especially in spring but pleasantly cool at night.Weather in Nepal
It’s hard to generalize about the climate of a country ranging in elevation from near sea level to the 8848m peak Mount Everest. About the only thing that can be said is that all but a few parts of Nepal are governed by the same monsoon pattern, with temperatures varying according to elevation.
Five Seasons prevail in Nepal, but whenever you n choose to go, you’ll have to weigh to other factors; most visitor want good mountain visibility but don’t forget about festivals and wildlife- or crowds and disease.
Around half of all tourists visit Nepal in the autumn (late September to late November) and for good reason. The weather is clear and dry, and temperatures aren’t too cold in the high country, not too hot in the Tarai, with the pollution and dust washed away by the monsoon rains, the mountain are at their most visible, making this the most popular time for trekking. Two major festivals, Dashain and Tihar, also fall during this season. The downside, however is that the tourist quarters are heaving, prices are higher and it may be hard to find a decent room.
Winter (December and January) weather is mostly part clear and stable. It isn’t especially cold at lower elevations – it never snows in Kathmandu, and afternoon temperatures are balmy- but the “mists of Indra” can make mornings dank and chilly (especially in unheated budget lodging). Most travelers head down into India, leaving the tourist areas fairly quiet-too quiet, sometimes especially on trekking areas. this is an excellent time to visit the Tarai, where temperature are relatively mild.
Spring (February to mid April) brings steadily warmer weather and longer days, plus weddings, and more festivals. Rhododendrons are in bloom in the hills towards the end of this period, and as the tarsi’s long grasses have been cut, spring is the best time for viewing wildlife despite the increasing heat. All these pluses bring another tourist influx, albeit not as heavy as in the autumn. The one factor that keeps people away is a disappointing haze that obscures the mountains from lower elevations, though its usually possible to trek above it. Alongside the pre-monsoon, spring is also the season when you’re more likely to pick up a stomach bug.
During the Pre-monsoon (mid April to early June) the heat grows progressively more stifling at lower elevations. Afternoon clouds and increasingly frequent showers help moderate temperature a bit after mid- or late May, but this is offset by rising humidity. People get a little edgy with the heat; the pre-monsoon is known as the time for popular unrest, but also for the Kathmandu Valley’s great rain making festival Trek high where the temperatures are more tolerable.
Nepal is welcome the monsoon, the timing of which may vary by few weeks every year but typically lasts from mid–June to mid–September. The rains break the every enervating monotony of the previous months, and make the Fields come alive with rushing water and green shoots. This can be a fascinating time to visit, when Nepal is at its most Nepali the air is clean flowers are in bloom everywhere and fresh fruit and vegetables are particularly abundant. But there are also drawbacks; mountain views are rare leeches come out in force along the mid-elevation trekking routes, roads may be blocked by landslides, and flights may be cancelled.
