Best time to volunteer in Nepal
The type of activities you are looking to do during your volunteering experience in Nepal will depend on the best time to visit. The winter months tend to be very cold, with temperatures often reaching below zero. The advantage of this is the lower amount of tourists; however, many outdoor activities are likely to be closed out of season. Early autumn, throughout October and November, is a great time as the weather is warmer for enjoying the sunshine and activities, enabling you to explore many of the medieval cities or temples. The spring season is beautiful and warm also, with many activities running, but beware of Nepal's infamous monsoon season which starts brewing in May, taking place during the months of June, July and August where it is likely to rain most days, causing landslides and flooding which could disrupt your travel and plans. Generally, hiking and trekking is possible throughout the year providing you prepare well for the weather during any particular season.
