The autumn season covers the months such as September, October, and November. You get to see the exquisite view of the Himalayas with no chance of obstruction in the sightseeing. The temperature is moderate. It allows you the chance of exploring the outskirts of Nepal on a mountain bike.

Is Monsoon the best time to visit Nepal?

As far as the name suggests, monsoon means rain and only rain. There is a high chance of hailstorm along with heavy rainfall. It is not a good sign if you are on to trek Nepal.
