Best Season for Nepal Bhutan Tour

Nepal Bhutan Tour shares the same climatic and geographical conditions from the high Himalayas to the low sub-tropical plains. It is possible to carry out the Nepal Bhutan Tour throughout the year; however, spring (March, April, and May) and autumn (September, October, and November) are considered the best time for the Nepal Bhutan Tour.

During these seasons, skies are sunny, the air is fresh and clean, the temperature is warm and pleasant, and there is little or no chance of rainfall and snowfall. Also, the views are clear during this time.

Winter (November, December, and January) is the coldest season and there might be a high chance of problematic snowfall. Summer/monsoon (June, July, and August) receives high rainfall because of which roads and trails become slippery and the chance of landslides also increases. However, you can also travel Nepal Bhutan during this season with extra precautions. It is just the off-season, not the bad season.

To visit Nepal, you need to obtain a Nepal Visa. It is mandatory for every traveler from any country except India. This visa can be obtained after your arrival in Nepal. You just need to submit your passport which has at least 6 months of validity from the start date of the tour.
