This tour can be done any time of the year except during monsoon / rainy season (from June to September) since there is some heavy down pour for few hours but somehow will not be an obstacle for this tour. Weather during spring is warm with fairly clear sky from March to May. During monsoon, it is bit warm, humid and cloudy sky but when it rains, the weather become cooler. October brings mild winter until half way of November. From half way November to February, Kathmandu becomes bit cold in the morning and in the evening as it is located at an altitude of 1400 meters from sea level. As Chitwan lies just 260 meters above sea level (low land of Nepal) which has sub-tropical climate, it is quite hot during spring and summer.
