When should you visit Nepal?
If you are planning to visit Nepal for mountain views, you should visit Nepal in autumn season (Sep to Nov) which is also the peak season. Weather remains neither too cold nor too hot during these season. It is also the time for Dashain and Tihar- the two major festivals in Nepal. It may be bit difficult to find descent rooms though in these months. Since the monsoon will just have been ended, all dirt and dust would have been washed away and you will have best mountain views due to clear weather. Winter (Dec and Jan) is best for exploration in and around Kathmandu where you will take short hiking to rural areas.
