Nepal, Buddhism, Trekking and You

Hello my name is Sujan Sitaula. I have been a Trekking and Tour Guide for fifteen years in Nepal. I have also been the Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour Operator for the last eight years. I provide mountain hiking and local area tour guidance for the company: Beside the Himalayan Treks & Expedition.

The most popular Trekking and Touring season officially starts in September. There are many vacation packages to accommodate your vacation wishes. You will discover a mountainous wonderland filled with beautiful landscape in and around Nepal. The area is the birthplace of Buddha and Buddhism. This area is interesting for all individuals that are curious about the culture of Nepal and the spiritual awakening to a higher level of aware consciousness, perhaps through the teachings and practices of Buddhism.

The yearly Tangbuche Monastery Festival will be celebrated from November 14th until the 16th of 2016. This is in honor of Buddha and Buddhism. It will be possible to see the Buddhist monks learning and teaching Buddhism as they have done for centuries. There will be meditation periods during the three day festival. The festival gives people an excellent opportunity to experience the daily activities of the Buddhist monks. It also provides an inside look at the culture and mannerisms of Nepal and surrounding areas.

Here is some general information concerning vacation plans in the beautiful Himalaya Mountains and Nepal. I have also included information about our companies dedication and obligation to you, the people & culture of Nepal and the Himalaya Mountains.


Nepal has four distinct seasons. Spring (March – May) is warm and dusty with rain showers. Summer (June – August) is the monsoon season when the hills turn lush and green. Autumn (September – November) is cool with clear skies, and is the most popular trekking season. In winter (December – February) is cold at night and can be foggy in the early morning, but afternoons are usually clear and pleasant, though there is occasional snow in the mountains. Because Nepal is quite far south, (at the same latitude as Miami and Cairo) the weather is warmer and winter is much milder at lower elevations, including Kathmandu at 1360 meters. It rarely snows below 2000 meters.

When to Trek?

During autumn the nights are cold in the mountains, but the bright sun makes for pleasant day temperatures – in the high 20s° C, falling to 5° C at night, between 1000 meters and 3500 meters. At higher altitudes temperatures range from about 20° C down to – 10° C. Mornings are usually clear with clouds building up during the afternoon, disappearing at night to reveal spectacular starry skies. During winter, it is about 10 degrees colder.
