Kathmandu climate

Laying in the mountainous Kathmandu Valley, the city of Kathmandu has a subtropical highland climate. This means that summer temperatures are in the mid-20s (Celsius), and the winter temperatures average around 10 C. Monsoon season is from June to August.

When to fly to Kathmandu

Summer is monsoon season, so trips in late spring and early autumn are best.

Getting around Kathmandu

Taxis or rickshaws are preferable to buses, which because of poor road surfaces can be pretty uncomfortable; make sure to negotiate your rate.

Kathmandu insider information

A symbol of the increased Western presence in recent decades, Freak Street used to be home to a lot of hippies. Today it is a collection of restaurants and lodgings and is a nice alternative to Thamel.
