Around the Kathmandu Valley

Weather

In summer (May to September) Kathmandu and the valley can get very hot, with temperatures often above 30°C. Even in the winter months (December to February) the bright sunny days often reach 20°C, although with nightfall the mercury may plummet to near freezing.

It never snows in the Kathmandu Valley, but climb higher to the valley edge at Nagarkot and it gets significantly colder, so bring a jumper.
