Nepal in July/August ... worth it?

wondering whether it's worth it to visit Nepal during monsoon season.

I have been planning on being in Nepal for July and August, but after doing some reading I'm wondering whether it's even worth it seeing as these months are during monsoon season. According to the Lonely Planet guide book rafting rivers become dangerously swollen, trails in the foothills turn into rivers of mud, roads are blocked by floods and landslides, national parks close, etc. So they obviously don't recommend travelers to go at this time.

Has anyone gone during these months? Any advice? Reply to this

I would like to say about monsoon in Nepal, Yes June to September is monsoon in Nepal so here is rain, landslide and flood, But still we have coming to visitor for trekking/hiking in Nepal,
Off course very less changes to do Rafting at this condition and all so looks not safety, Safety is important, But in National park is never closed, and we have seen visitor are exploring on there,
Probably you mean Chit wan national park there is few hotels which is run any time this mean never closed, all so pokhara never closed,
Other part If you want to make Hiking/Trekking in Nepal we have same part have less rain like Manang/Dolpa/Mustang/
June to September Nepals Travels company are offer to trip over those places, so there is lot option where you can enjoy…
I hope it will help you.

hey Rhianna More,

Yes you are right, rivers are on its peak this time, mostly due to the heavy rains during the monsoon. You can go this time but you have to avoid the river rafting from your schedule. Else you also can enjoy the northern part of India as well.

Take care... Reply to this
