The best time to visit Nepal is either in October-December period, when the weather is cool and pleasant or from April-June, when it is warm and dry.
Months of June-September bring heavy rainfall in Nepal and so the traveling is no longer fun.
January-March are cold months with mercury dropping below 0 degrees.
How to reach Nepal
Nepal, being a friendly nation, does not create fuss over the entries. One can even get the VISA on arrival, though this will be only for 15 days. Citizens of SAARC countries do not need to pay for the VISA as it is free for them. Indian do not need VISA for Nepal.
There are multiple routes to enter Nepal, though the mediums are quite restricted.
The Tribhuvan International Airport is located in Kathmandu, just beyond the outer ring road. Not all the nations in the world have direct flights from and to Nepal. A very few places like Hong Kong, Delhi, Bangkok, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Dubai, Bangalore and Mumbai are easily accessible from Nepal.
But the service and the routes are improving with every passing day, so it is advised to check the updated routes before planning. It is also suggested that one should reach the respective airport at least 3 hours before check-in as the service desks for Nepal are very few in number and the service is not very quick.
Neither is the train service reasonably great in Nepal, nor are they advised. There is only one cargo train between Nepal and India but the slow speed and umpteen stoppages kill all the thrill.
By road, there are 5 entry points from India and one entry point from Tibet.
From Tibet, Kodari is the gateway to Nepal, and is open for all the tourists.
From India, the entries are:The Sunauli-Bhairawa border(Varanasi), the Raxaul-Birganj border (Patna), and Siliguri-Kakarbhitta (Darjeeling),The Banbassa-Mahendrenagar border near Delhi. The bahraich-Nepalganj border near Lucknow which is easily accessible via Delhi by train or by air.
