Nepal in July

Nepal in July:

July is a summer month in Nepal. July has maximum daytime temperatures ranging from moderate in Lukla with 15°C (58°F) to very warm temperatures in Pokhara with 30°C (86°F). Nighttime temperatures generally drop to 22°C (72°F) in Pokhara and 4°C (39°F) in Lukla.

Best Things to do in July in Nepal: July is not good for trekking due to heavy rainfall and muddy trail. The best things to do is visit places where walking is not involved and here are the list of things we recommend people visiting Nepal in July.

Experience Tibetan Culture at Boudhanath Stupa: Bouddha also known as Boudhanath, Khasti Chaitya and Khāsa Chaitya is a stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal.Located about 11 km (6.8 mi) from the center and northeastern outskirts of Kathmandu, its massive mandala makes it one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal and the world.

The influx of large populations of refugees from Tibet has seen the construction of over 50 gompas (Tibetan monastery) around Boudha. As of 1979, Boudha Stupa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along with Swayambhu, it is one of the most popular tourist sites in the Kathmandu area.

The stupa is on the ancient trade route from Tibet which enters the Kathmandu Valley by the village of Sankhu in the northeast corner and continues to the ancient and smaller stupa of Chabahil named Charumati Stupa (often called “Little Boudhanath”). It then turns directly south, heading over the Bagmati River to Lalitpur, bypassing the main city of Kathmandu (which was built later).[2] Tibetan merchants have rested and offered prayers at Boudha Stupa for many centuries. When refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many decided to live around Boudhanath. The stupa is said to entomb the remains of Kassapa Buddha.

Wildlife Safari at Chitwan National Park: Chitwan National Park is the first national park in Nepal and boasts a beautiful setting and abundant wildlife. Established in 1973, this park covers an area of 932 km² (360 m²) and is located in the subtropical Inner Terai lowlands of south-central Nepal. The altitude varies from 100 m (330 ft) in the river valleys to 815 m (2,674 ft) higher up in the Churia Hills in the south.

Chitwan National Park is home to many endangered animals, such as the greater one horned rhinoceros, royal Bengal tiger, gharial crocodile, fresh water gangetic dolphin and others. In addition, four types of deer, two types of monkeys, wild boar, sloth bear, elephant and leopard can also be found here.

Chitwan National Park is a paradise for birdwatchers. It has recorded 634 species of birds, including the most endangered Bengal florican, great pied hornbill and many reptiles, amphibians and fish.

Boating in Phewa Tal Lake: Boating in Nepal is one of the interesting recreational things. It has glacier fed lakes up north to the gently moving rivers in terai, you hire a boat for couple of hours with guide or without guide, you can enjoy the moments with lots of sights near around you.

Phewa Lake is the second largest lake in Pokhara, the lake bordering the forested hill. The view of Fishtail and other mountains reflected in the lake, the little island and the Tal Barahi temple in the middle, the white stupa on the top of the hill, the gliders jumping from Sarangkot, the Ultralight soaring up high and paralleled each other, buzzing, all at once can be seized in the mild breeze over the Phewa Lake.

At Phewa Lake, you can choose what type of boats you would like to have, the driven boats (the old fashioned one joined two boats with planks and pedals in the middle), row boats and sail boats. There is also choice between fibred-body sailboats and wooden ones. You can do boating in Pokhara valley throughout the year except monsoon. Begnas and Rupa Lakes are also an excellent ‘boat lakes’. They have crystal clear water. These lakes have been separated by a forested hill named Pachabhaiya Danda and can be the nice retreat. Begnas does not have nicer hotels and lodges, it is better to make a day trip from Pokhara.

Down in the Terai, the Narayani and Rapti rivers are famous for canoeing. The memory cannot be deleted being together with Gangetic dolphin in the Narayani and wonderful migratory birds, gharial, and other wildlife inside Chitwan National Park.

Bungee Jumping at Hemja, Pokhara: Take your thirst for adventure and adrenaline to the next level, apart from the treks and mountain bike treks in Nepal. If you feel you need a perspective on Pokhara’s Landscape, then try looking at it upside-down while you make a leap of faith from 73 meters above the ground. The experience of bungee jumping in Pokhara is certainly exhilarating and it is one activity you should not be missing out.

It is a tower bungee that is set on a steel cliff extension and the base is surrounded by mountains with water right below. Located only 25 kilometres away from the Pokhara lakeside, it is very accessible from the city. 

The bungee is a 75-meter vertical jump with a free fall period of 3 seconds and the view of the Himalayas can be best enjoyed when the weather is not too foggy on a given day. HighGround Adventures operate the jumping base. There is also an option to make a tandem bungee jump, where two people will make the jump together.

Location: Hemja, Pokhara
Timings: 9 AM – 5 PM
Elevation: 75 meters
Weight restrictions: 35kg to 125kg
Age restriction: 13 years (minimum)

River Rafting in Upper Seti River: Our Upper Seti Rafting trip is a fantastic half day run, just 30 minutes from Lakeside Pokhara. A must on anyone’s list when kayaking in Nepal. Short and sweet, there are continuous rapids for over 40 minutes, we can even fit in 2 runs if your up for it!

The Upper Seti is one of the shortest and sweetest river trips that we offer. In half a day it has the same amount of rapids on offer as the Kaligandaki does in 3 days! Seti means ‘white’ as this is the color the water runs due to the nonstop rapids. Watch out for ‘Landslide’ rapid…it’s a monster!

Rafting :

Great for those short of time looking for a quick adrenaline rush out of Pokhara

Kayaking :

You will need to be a solid Grade III paddler to take on this river. Depending on the time of year it might be necessary to scout a few of the rapids. A great warm up in the Pokhara area before you tackle more complex rivers like the Madi or Modi. We run the Upper Seti as part of our famous 9 days Multi River Kayak Expedition. 

Explore the Tea Gardens in Ilam: Ilam is a small hilly town with pristine landscape of sloped organic tea gardens, thick natural forests, holy sites and unique culture. Ilam offers a romantic sunrise and sunset views, hiking into the orthodox tea garden, tranquil picnic and sightseeing spots. An excellent getaway from city life, Ilam is famous for its tea. It is a district largely covered in tea bushes with a hill town right beside a plantation enjoying views of pristine landscapes made up of sloping tea gardens, mountain streams, dense natural forests, holy sites and unique culture.
