Hola, mi nombre es Ranjan Khadka. Bienvenido a mi blog. Comparto esta informacion con los viajeros que buscan aventure en Nepal.

In northern Nepal summers are cool and winters are extreme, while in the south, summers are blistering while winters are gentle to cold. Nepal has five seasons: spring, summer, rainstorm, harvest time and winter. 

In the Tarai (southern Nepal), summer temperatures surpass 40° C or more 45 in certain territories, while winter temperatures run from 7°C to 23°C. In bumpy locales, slopes and valleys, summers are mild while winter temperatures can dive to below zero. The Kathmandu Valley has a wonderful atmosphere with normal summer temperatures of 20°C – 35°C and 2°C – 12°C in winter. 

Normal temperatures in Nepal drop 6°C for each 1,000 m you gain in elevation. 

The Himalayas go about as an obstruction to the virus twists blowing from Central Asia in winter and structure the northern limit for storm downpours. A few spots like Manang and Mustang fall in the downpour shadow behind the mountains and are for the most part dry. 80% of all the downpour in Nepal is gotten during the storm (June-September). Winter downpours are progressively articulated in the western slopes. The normal yearly precipitation is 1,600 mm, however, it fluctuates by eco-climatic zones, for example, 3,345 mm in Pokhara and beneath 300 mm in Mustang. 

There is no regular limitation ongoing in and through Nepal. Indeed, even in December and January, when winter is at its severest, there are repaying splendid sun and splendid perspectives. Similarly, as with the greater part of the trekking territories in Nepal, the best time to visit are during spring and harvest time. Spring is the ideal opportunity for rhododendrons to blossom while the clearest skies are found after the storm in October and November. Be that as it may, Nepal can be visited the entire all year. 
For more information about Nepal's climatic conditions, if you don't mind visit the official site of the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology, Ministry of Environment.


Exquisite handicrafts of brilliant workmanship are sold in the markets. Many of these carry religious significance. Artistic works of stone and metal, silver and gold trinkets, and incredible wood carvings are readily available.

Other kinds of souvenirs include Nepali tea, the famous Gurkha knife or Khukuri, prayer wheels, stone carvings, singing bowls, paper–maché masks, thangkas and pauls, pashmina, carpets, jewelry, etc. Souvenir items are available in tourist areas like Thamel, New Road, Basantapur, Asan, Patan, Bhaktapur and around major hotels. But remember anything older than 100 years old cannot be taken out of the country.
Shopping malls and departmental stores sell branded items and accessories like cell phones, i-pads, and laptops to electronic appliances, cameras, music systems, kitchenware, garments, jewelry, perfumes, watches, toys, fitness equipment and a multitude of household items.

Popular shopping malls in Kathmandu Valley are Bhatbhateni chain of stores, Sideways chain of stores, City Center in Kamal Pokhari, Civil Mall in Sundhara, Kathmandu Mall in Sundhara, Labim Mall in Pulchowk, Salesberry in Satdobato. Shopping areas in the valley are around New Road, Putali Sadak, Kumaripati, Bhatbhateni, Lazimpat, Sundhara, Tripureshwor, Lagankhel, and Jawalakhel. In Pokhara, the major shopping areas are Lakeside and Mahendrapul Bazaar.


Customary abilities like wood-cutting have been passed on for quite a long time in the Kathmandu Valley. Enroll in a class to study woodcarving, stone brickwork, stoneware or take in sensitive Thangka painting from craftsmen who have been rehearsing these aptitudes for ages. 

Nepal has a bounty of sanctuaries and castles, craftsmanship and art, music and war history. Right up 'til today, there are talented skilled workers who can make similarly excellent woodcarvings and complicated statues. Nepal is the origin of Araniko, a well-known craftsman, of the late twelfth century, from the Kathmandu Valley who made a trip to China, Beijing and constructed the acclaimed White Stupa at the Miaoying Temple. He is a key figure in Chinese culture since he presented the pagoda style design in China, just because and the rest is history. 

Nepal's sanctuaries and statues of divine beings, and different figures mirror the brilliant past when workmanship thrived in the capital city. From the exceptionally common families to dissolving iron for putting the world on the map blade, Khukuri, Nepalese specialists are experts of their specialty. For instance, Nepal is well known for rugs, thangka (Painting of Gods) Newari woodcarving, Himalayan Nepalese paper, Tibetan handiworks, Buddhist and Hindu statues, Mithila divider workmanship, bamboo weaved umbrella, and for its indigenously made family unit things.


Set up your hands and state Namaste and grin as they return your signal with veritable grins of acknowledgment. 'You are welcome, you are our visitors' state the agreeable grins. Nepali individuals are the absolute most amiable individuals on the planet which is one reason guests hold returning. 

Nepal is an unimaginably different nation and home to various religions, races, clans, and societies. The nation has more than 100 ethnic gatherings and is for all intents and purposes a blend of a lot (increasingly than 90) dialects and ethnicity. 

It's intriguing to figure out how individuals have adjusted to their condition in astonishing manners. Because of the inaccessibility of the mountains a few people's lives have changed next to no in the only remaining century. You can at present experience parades of donkeys moving essential products to and from far off settlements in the Himalayas. Oxes furrow the land, metalworkers make instruments and bullock trucks despite everything transport grain and straw from the fields in the fields. Kindling is as yet a significant source of vitality for cooking in towns that resemble an outdoor history historical center. 

City life may look present day with all the trappings of advancement, however customs and societies continue as before as they were hundreds of years back. A great part of the celebrations is praised precisely as they were hundreds of years back with certain local people speaking to overlooked rulers who once administered over their progenitors. Old customs are clung to in their unique structure as individuals are profoundly strict and visit the sanctuaries every day. 

A Nepali family once acquainted with you is well on the way to welcome you in for a dinner. Indeed, even the most unfortunate individuals will impart their feast to visitors. Maybe, this is the significant explanation, why a visitor can't stay a vacationer for long in Nepal. When a visitor starts to know the spot and its kin, he is not, at this point an outsider - he is an esteemed visitor. 

The best methods for meeting the individuals of Nepal are during a trek or simply walking around the boulevards of the urban areas or during one of  multi-day visits offered by nearby the travel industry administrators. 

Voyagers visit Nepal over and again and that says everything regarding the connection they feel.
