Destination Information for Nepal
Nepal is home to 8 out of 10 of the world’s highest peaks including Mount Everest, so it is perfect for those who like climbing, walking, cycling and hiking. You can take trips through all the scenic routes and take in its steep history. Tourists and travellers head to Nepal throughout the year but the best time to go is in October when it is in the dry season, where the temperature during the day is warm, making it perfect for hiking and walking, while the evening temperature is a little cooler and comfortable for sleeping.
Nepal has some amazing sights to visit. Enjoy a safari ride in Chitwan National Park or a trip to Bhaktapur, a medieval city. Durbar Square is home to palaces and temples or make a visit to the Garden of Dreams. Stay in a hotel and admire the stunning views of the Annapurna and Himalayan mountain ranges.
When travelling to Nepal there are a number of Nepal Travel Vaccinations required. Here at London Travel Clinic we recommend you make an appointment and visit our clinic to speak to a travel nurse who can advise you on the correct vaccinations to have.

There is a high risk of P.Vivax and P.Falciparum malaria in the southern half of the country. There is a low to know risk in other areas including Kathmandu and treks in the Himalayas. (See map above).
