Kathmandu's weather is pleasant and dry from October until to April. The monsoon season begins in October, lasting until June when floods and landslides may occur. The Holi Festival occurs in March and the Ghode Jatra festival commences during March/April. The Nepalese New Year also begins in April and Gai Jatra is held in August.

Once there, drink and brush your teeth with bottled or boiled water only. Overland travel should be organised with official tours. Hiking alone should be avoided and exporting protected species is prohibited here. Restaurant meals cost between 200 - 400 NPR and non-alcoholic drinks are around 45 NPR. Beer costs about 320 NPR.
