About one million people visit Nepal every year. The main pulls are mountaineering, hiking and enjoying the country’s unique culture. As a result, its capital and largest city, Kathmandu, can be quite crowded and multicultural during the high season. However, once you get out of the city and into the wilderness, you will feel like you’re all alone. Trips here are generally immersive. The country is very mountainous and poorly connected by roads, so most mountaineering expeditions include days of hiking to the target and climbing up it. Due to the high levels of tourism, pollution is a growing problem in this small country. Remember to always bring back what you’ve brought in.
During the spring and summer, Nepal is generally quite warm. Daily average temperatures are 22ºC and 30ºC, respectively. Of course, higher up in the mountains it gets colder. Rain is not infrequent during the spring and during the summer the monsoon season begins, when the country receives a lot of rain. During the autumn, the skies clear and the country is a bit cooler than during the spring.
