Nepal is home to 8 out of 10 of the world’s highest peaks including Mount Everest, so it is perfect for those who like climbing, walking, cycling and hiking. You can take trips through all the scenic routes and take in its steep history. Tourists and travellers head to Nepal throughout the year but the best time to go is in October when it is in the dry season, where the temperature during the day is warm, making it perfect for hiking and walking, while the evening temperature is a little cooler and comfortable for sleeping.
