The prime trekking seasons are March – May and September – November when the views are generally clear and there is little rain. It will be cold at night and mid twenties during the day. However, these are also the busiest times to visit the country. Kathmandu will be hottest in the build up to monsoon season which usually starts in June but has come late in the last few years and stretched into August. November – February can be a good time to trek in terms of avoiding others but expect some snow and it should be noted that the only time you are likely to get mountain views during these months is at the crack of dawn.

 Health and Vaccinations 

There are no mandatory immunisations for travellers to Bhutan though you should be up-to-date with Typhoid, Tetanus, Polio and Hepatitis A. Malaria is present in some parts of Bhutan so we recommend you seek advice from your local GP or travel centre as to the correct immunisations and preventative treatments.  


In Nepal the official unit of currency is the Nepali Rupee. This is a closed currency and can only be exchanged in country.  To check out the latest exchange rate for the places that you are visiting you can go to  

Cultural Sensitivity 

On our tours we frequently interact with local people, each with their own distinct customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. Your guides will be able to advise you accordingly.  

In some countries, visible shoulders or knees could be disrespectful and may make it difficult to visit ancient ruins, temples, or UNESCO World Heritage sites. We suggest that for countries where you will be visiting these kinds of sites that you make sure to carry a cover up, shawl or scarf, and don something that covers your knees, out of respect for the local culture.  

Language & Religion 

Nepal’s official language is Nepali, spoken by approximately 50 per cent of the population. There are dozens of other languages spoken in smaller circles such as Bhojpuri and Maithili, but English is widely understood.  

Hinduism is practiced by about 80% of Nepalis, making it the country with the highest percentage of Hindus. Buddhism is the second most practiced religion with around 16% of followers, followed by Kirat, Islam, Christianity and animism. A large section of the population, especially in the hills, even though they follow Hindu customs, may identify themselves as both Hindu and Buddhists which can be attributed to the syncretic nature of Hinduism and Buddhism in Nepal.
