It is a wonderful time to observe monsoon cycle of agriculture and the traditional life of Nepalese people.
Autumn (September, October and November): 
This time is considered to be the best tourist season in Nepal with the end of summer and the winter to set in. The weather is highly pleasant so are the mountain views.

Wonderful stay in Nepal

This autumn, I planned to trip in Nepal and I choose Hiking Nepal to organize a family tour for us. Very quick and complete information, great job! Wish all the best to Hiking Nepal. From the time of welcome, we got great services. Throughout the trip, we enjoy a lot. Our stay at Apsara boutique was awesome. Chitwan Safari was great fun and adventurous too. Don’t missed elephant bathing, really of great fun. Then, we went to Pokara was interesting. We did paragliding, boating, and sarangkot sunrise was tremendous. Thanks to Hiking Nepal for excellence services.
