Nepal is a year-round destination, protected from the cold winter winds of Central Asia by the Himalayas. The monsoon season falls between June and September, which is when the country sees the vast majority of its annual rainfall.

The Kathmandu Valley enjoys a fairly temperate climate with temperatures averaging between 20°C and 35°C in the summer and between 2°C and 12°C in the winter months. The best times to fly to Nepal for hiking adventures are spring and autumn.

Reasons to visit Nepal

Experience one of the world’s most welcoming nations

You can’t miss the coloured flags strung up at peaks and elevations across Nepal. In fact, you may even see some as you begin your descent during your Nepal flight.

A long-held tradition among Tibetans and the Nepalese, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength and wisdom, with each colour representing a different sentiment.

This warmth of spirit is reflected in the country’s people, with Nepal known for its hospitality. You’ll be welcomed to the country with open arms and, quite possibly, an invitation to one of its many cosy teahouses.

Explore thousands of years of Asian history

Nepal’s Hindu and Buddhist temples are true masterpieces, their red colouring a striking feature of the skyline.

Durbar Square in Kathmandu has the best of the bunch. A collection of elevated, tiered temples which are positioned so they overlook the city. While Nepal’s best-preserved medieval town, Bhaktapur, offers the tallest temple in the country.

Those visiting Nepal’s oldest temple, the 1,500-year-old Changu Narayan Temple, will enjoy art through the ages from the Himalayan region. As this is a religious monument, remember to dress accordingly and cover your arms, shoulders, chest and legs.

Mount Everest is the highest peak of them all. It straddles the border between Nepal and Tibet and stands proud at 29,000 feet.

The third highest mountain in the world, Kangchenjunga, is around 80 miles away, and creates a stunning jagged line across the horizon.

Flying to Nepal: FAQs

Which airport will I fly to in Nepal?

Your Etihad flight to Nepal will land at Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) – the country’s main airport, about three miles outside of Kathmandu.

From Kathmandu, it’s possible to fly to Pokhara to visit some of the country’s main tourist sites. However, bus routes are the most common way to travel across the country.

What is the food like in Nepal?

You’ll find many Asian classic dishes on offer in Nepal, often with a Nepalese twist. Vegetables, lentils and spices are all key to this cuisine. Look out for the delicious dumplings called momo, served with a dipping sauce – usually a fresh tomato chutney.

How much time should I spend in Nepal?

The length of a stay in Nepal tends to depend on the nature of the trip. Travellers to the Kathmandu Valley can see the main attractions in two or three days. If you want to fit in a visit to Pokhara, then five to eight days is about right. For a trekking getaway in Nepal, people often visit for two or three weeks.
