The Best Places to Visit in Nepal in June

June is considered to be the starting month of the monsoon season in Nepal. The weather is unpredictable with frequent and heavy rainfall, cloud cover, and landslides in upland parts of the country. June is considered a bad month for trekking. If you don't mind the wet conditions in June, however, it is a good time to save money and avoid the crowds. Here are some of the recommended places to visit if you are going to Nepal in June.

1. The Garden of Dreams, Kathmandu

Kathmandu is a year-round destination in Nepal. June is a good time to visit the Garden of Dreams, as the heavy rains make the plants green and clean. The garden is well-known for its historical and neo-classical designs. It covers about 6,895 square meters, where you can spend many hours if you like. You will get stunning views including well-designed trellises, and various planting areas, a flower garden with a large pond at its center, urns, paved paths, and pergolas. Many families and retired couples visit this beautiful garden at the weekends. If you don't want to get crowded in, just avoid the weekends.

2. Narayanhiti Palace Museum, Kathmandu

If you don't want to do certain outdoor activities during the rainy days in June in Kathmandu, then the Narayanhiti Palace Museum is a good place to spend a half day and learn more about Nepal's royal family and history, including Nepali architecture, the kings' personal things, daily routine, and stories of the royal family. There are many arts and cultural relics exhibited in the museum, including exemplary architecture, art pieces, ornaments, furniture, and more.

3. The Davis Waterfalls, Pokhara

The Davis Waterfalls

June is a good time to visit waterfalls in Pokhara, as the extremely high rainfall makes the falls more magnificent during the monsoon season. One of the most visited cascades is the Davis Waterfalls. It got its name from a woman called Davis, who drowned in the waterfall. Situated in the midst of a rocky and lush landscape, the waterfall falls in a 150-meter (500-foot) -long underground tunnel. During the monsoon season, the waterfall is at its most impressive. You can walk behind the waterfall and enjoy its cool mist to escape the summer heat in June.

4. World Peace Temple, Pokhara

World Peace Pagoda

If it would be your first time to visit Pokhara, World Peace Pagoda should be on your list. It is located on the top of the Ananda Hill, where you can get a spectacular view of the Annapurna Mountain range, Phewa Lake, and Pokhara valley. You can see four statues of Buddha facing the four cardinal directions in the main Pagoda structure. If you are going to watch the sunrise or sunset in Pokhara, World Peace Pagoda should be your top option as a viewpoint. Remember to wear good quality shoes as the steps to the top are steep, and they're slippery on rainy days.

5. Chitwan National Park

Chitwan National Park

June is a good time to visit Chitwan National Park, as the monsoon rainfall makes its plants lush and green and the animals are active during this time. Covering an area of 932 sq km (360 sq mi), Chitwan National Park attracts lots of wildlife lovers to spot one-horned rhinos, deer, monkeys, leopards, wild elephants, sloth bears, and even the royal Bengal tiger (if you are lucky) from all over the world. There are traditional Tharu cultural performances, which include music, dance, and traditional costumes, in the park.

Crowding and Costs in June

Due to its stormy, humid, and hot weather conditions (leading to flooding rivers, muddy trails, landslides, leeches, etc.), June is not considered a good time for trekking and doing other outdoor activities in Nepal. Few travelers choose this month to visit Nepal. There is no need to worry about crowding in June.

Hotels, tours, and flights operate on low-season prices in June. It is a good time to save money or spend more days in Nepal. Contact us — we can do all the research and booking for your ideal trip to Nepal.

What to Bring/Wear in June

June is quite warm/hot in Nepal during the day and mild/cool at night and in the early morning. You are recommended to pack summer clothes, such as shirts, light trousers, t-shirts, sandals, and sunglasses, with a light fleece jacket or hoodie to put on according to the daily temperature changes.

June is one of the wettest months of the year, with rain on about 15–20 days in most parts of the country. Umbrellas, waterproof shoes, and raincoats are needed more often than not in June. We recommend bringing spare footwear and clothes for if you get caught in the rain.
