The five main meteorological seasons of spring, summer, monsoon, autumn, and winter may all be experienced throughout the year in Nepal, which has a generally moderate climate structure. Nepal doesn't experience harsh weather, therefore you may vacation there year-round. The fall is one of the greatest times to visit Nepal, though, because it allows visitors to see the country's true character. Typically, the weather begins to clear up, the atmosphere becomes chillier, green valleys and woods appear more natural, and the sights are breathtaking when the monsoon season finishes in the first week of September. Around Nepal, fall typically begins in the middle of September and lasts until November. A little cold, bright skies at night, and a mild climate.

There are several benefits to trekking and visiting Nepal in the autumn. Here, we've made an effort to include a few of the main attractions that will entice you to visit Nepal in the fall.

Clear Weather & Nice Visibility 

After the rainy season, neither the relentless rain nor the sweltering heat affects you. The air is cleaner, the sky is starting to emerge bluer, and you are feeling more passionate. Visibility is key to enjoying many of the country's beauty since it is full of tall mountains and breathtaking vistas. When hiking in the high mountains, you can always count on good weather, excellent visibility, and a warm forecast to make your hike memorable and pleasurable. Trekking in high mountains is usually a challenging endeavor because it is not pleasant for the tour if the weather is not cooperative. Therefore, selecting Nepal as your holiday location is excellent during the autumn season.

Greenery & Rich Biodiversity

Autumn causes woodlands to appear greener and denser, and the trekking track reflects this. Since many attractive hiking routes in Nepal travel through a verdant forest on their way to an alpine forest high in the mountains. The off-the-beaten-path hiking routes include stunning green pasture and grassland plants, spectacular green forests and vibrant flowers, and clear green far vistas on a lovely bright day with a blue sky.

Season of Festivals in Nepal 

The biggest and most important events are easily accessible in the autumn. Fall is when Nepal mostly celebrates holidays like Dashain, Tihar, Chhat Puja, Mani Rimdu, Indra Jatra, and other numerous little celebrations. As a result, tourists now have more opportunities to get a close-up look at Nepal's culture, traditions, and festivals as well as to take part in them. So, trekking and exploring Nepal during the autumn season is another good reason for those who love to experience the diverse culture and festivals of Nepal

Low risk of disaster and unfortunate incidents 

Every year, a significant number of hikers and climbers perish as a result of poor scheduling for such climbing and trekking activities. But for any trekking or adventurous activity, fall is frequently regarded as the finest and least dangerous season. Neither a lot of snow nor a lot of rainfall in the autumn. A nice, warm day with a clear, blue sky dominates the scene. Floods, landslides, significant snowfall, storms, avalanches, and other unforeseen disasters are less likely to occur. Most of the time, climates are predictable and assumed. Only in the fall can we primarily chase the sunset on the snow-capped peak.
