When to go for rafting in Nepal?
Autumn (Mid September to late November): Most ideal time. The raining season is over, lot of greens, blue sky, rivers are moderately high but dropping, temperatures are warm with fine mountain views. It is a peak season of tourist arrival and sometimes difficult to get airlines reservation.
Winter (Late November to mid February): The winter months are cold, but skies are clear and river levels are low. You should expect cold water.
Spring and Summer (Mid February to mid June): It is also a good time for river fun. In late spring and summer rivers are fed with molten glaciers. River's levels are low, air and water temperature warm. The spring is often hazy. A shower is expected in spring and late summer.
Monsoon (Mid June to mid September): The monsoon brings torrential rains that flood the rivers so most people do not fancy rafting or kayaking at this time.
