If you're thinking about traveling to Nepal and Tibet, doing so at the right time of year will help you have a truly unforgettable experience. Of course, visiting these breath-taking destinations will leave you in absolute awe no matter the time of year, but you may want to avoid extremely cold temperatures or the monsoon season.
Here are our tips for the best time to visit both Nepal and Tibet:
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 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***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.
There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
