Nepal’s climate is strongly influenced by its topography, which varies greatly between the north‐western border, at very high altitudes in the Himalayan mountain range (8 of the world’s highest mountains are located in the Nepalese Himalayas), and the south‐eastern edge of the country which sits in the northern rim of the Gangetic plain at only around 300m above sea level.
The lowland regions of Nepal have a warm and humid sub‐tropical climate, with temperature around 22‐ 27 ̊C in summer months, dropping to 10‐15 ̊C in the winter. The high altitude mountainous regions are considerably colder, at 5‐15 ̊C in summer months, and remaining well below zero in the winter. Monsoon rainfalls arrive in June and continue until August or September, bringing 250‐450mm of rainfall per month in most of the country, but only 100‐150 to the north‐western mountain regions. The winter months are very dry and all regions receive less than 50mm per month.
