Mystical Nepal has long been the dream destination of intrepid travellers everywhere. With its rich cuisine, vibrant culture and rugged natural beauty, this landlocked Himalayan gem never disappoints – but to really get the most out of your trip, there are specific times of year that you should prioritise.
Depending on where you come from, there’s a high chance that the word “November” doesn’t conjure up thoughts of far-flung getaways and brilliant sunshine. In Nepal, however, that’s the best time to visit for a perfect combination of bright weather, reasonable temperatures and fantastic views. What’s not to love?

In Nepal, November is a valuable window of opportunity. With the treacherous monsoon season over but the bitter winter yet to strike, November is considered peak trekking season for very good reason. The sunny conditions and largely clear skies mean it’s an ideal time to appreciate the sheer beauty of some of our most popular trekking routes, like the Everest Base Camp and the week-long Poon Hill Multi Adventure. If you’ve always dreamed of ticking a Himalayan trek off your bucket list, these trips are for you. And if the exercise doesn’t take your breath away, the views certainly will.
If you’re looking for a Himalayan trek with a twist, there are plenty of alternative options for you.For those same spectacular November views, but with very few tourists, our Mardi Himal Base Camp trek is a firm favourite. It only lasts one week, but we’ll get you off the beaten tourist track and into the heart of the immense Himalayas before you know it. If you’re limited on time but want a real Himalayan experience, this is a great option for you.
For all the hard-core adrenaline junkies out there, our Break to the Border adventure is the trip you’ve been waiting for. If you can handle bungee jumping, canyoning and white water rafting your way through dense jungle to reach the foothills of the Chinese frontier, prepare to take the plunge (literally) and sign up today!
For the more environmentally-minded, Nepal green tourism includes some spectacular national parks, home to rhinos, monkeys and even elephants. To really make a positive impact, join our Mohare Danda trek, a socially and environmentally responsible route where you’ll stay with local villagers and truly experience authentic Nepalese culture as you travel. This is a special trip, guaranteed to create lifelong memories.
