Following the instructions of a Nepalese tourist guide, you will be able to discover sublime landscapes through trekking tours, but also canyoning or rafting. A trip to Nepal is also about discovering Buddhist culture, including the site of Swayambhunath and its famous stupa in the Kathmandu Valley, one of the oldest Buddhist temples in the country. Going to Nepal also means meeting seventy people who live in the Himalayan mountains and warmly welcome visitors. Whether it is the Newar, Sherpa, Parbatya, Gurung, Tamang, Limbu, Magar peoples, they will offer you their hospitality and smiles, plunge you into the beauty of their landscapes and reveal their ancestral mystique. Nepal is indeed lived at the rhythm of contacts with its population and this is also what makes this country so endearing

When to go to Nepal?

The high tourist season in Nepal extends from October to April, when the climate is dry and sunny. During the high season, the best time to travel to Nepal is October and November (autumn) and March and April (spring). The low season therefore extends from the end of April to the beginning of September in Nepal: it is the monsoon season. If this weather is not a particular obstacle to activities, your view of the mountains may be reduced because of the accumulation of clouds
