Nepal is known for trekking, and the best time to explore this country is usually considered spring and autumn. Well, that is not wrong. Given the perfect weather conditions and climate, these two seasons are the best time to visit Nepal. But that doesn't mean you cannot travel to Nepal in the winter or summer seasons.

We have come up with this special summer tour package that anyone can join to have a very fun and adventurous trip in Nepal in the summer. The tour is well-managed and operated by our expert team, so you will not have any issues. As we have monsoon and summer hand in hand, we have made sure the itinerary fits the possible change in weather.

Kathmandu is a valley, so summer in this city is not as scorching as it is in the Terai part (plains) of the country. The temperature stays under 30° C-32° C on very hot days. However, in Terai, the temperature goes above 40° C, which makes it unbearable to be in that part of the country.

During the tour, we have a jungle safari in Chitwan National Park, part of the Terai region. You will get to experience the hot climate to some extent. Trust us, your time in Chitwan will be the most thrilling and unique one in the entire trip.

In Kathmandu, we have a full-day guided tour during which you will explore monuments like Monkey Temple, Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa, and Kathmandu Durbar Square. We then have a short two and half day trek to Chisapani that goes to Nagarkot and ends at the ancient Changu Narayan temple.

This short trek is known as the Chisapani Nagarkot trek and is quite famous as a short trek around Kathmandu. The trek is easy and has a gentle pace, therefore anyone can join it. The altitude gain is also very minimal, so there is no concern about altitude sickness.

The 9 days Nepal summer tour is an ideal trip to explore this beautiful country during this time of the year. You do not have to cancel your trip to Nepal anymore just because you can make it in the summer easily. Apart from this package, we have many other tours and trekking packages that are doable in the summer season.
