In Nepal, the monsoon season is warm, muggy and partly cloudy while the dry season is most comfortable all year. In northern Nepal, summers are tolerable while winters are severe when it comes to southern Nepal the summers are very hot while winters are mild. In Nepal, you can experience all five seasons. The high ranges of Himalayas act as a barrier to the cold winds blowing from Central Asia. The average temperature in Nepal drops 6°C for every 1,000 m you gain in altitude.
While the Himalayas are the identity of Nepal, its traditional norms and vibrant festivals shape the cultural lifestyle of the country. With approximately 80% of the people being Hindus, Dashain and Tihar are two of the most widely and grandly celebrated festivals in the country. Dashain is celebrated for nearly two weeks and Tihar is celebrated for five days. Both these festivals mark reunions, joy, and the victory of good over evil.
Maha Shivaratri is one of the major festivals of Nepal and literally means “Night of the Shiva”. It is believed that on this day, the stars in the Northern Hemisphere are at most optimum positions to help raise a person’s spiritual energy.It is also believed that the Shiva principle is most active on this day of the year.
