Hello Raja

Kathmandu in May is warm and you will have to travel to a pretty high altitude to get into snowy areas. Not reachable by taxi or air without several days/weeks of trekking. I doubt it is possible to find any decent hotels in theese areas, but maybe lodges/tea-houses of good quality.

Then you could go by private helicopter (very expenssive), but I am affraid that flying into high altitude and staying there for several days without acclimatization, will just put you in high risk of altitude sickness.

Wonderful places but not cold and without snow. You can see a great view and the snowy mountains in the distance ;-)

Namaste

Hoina! Chaina! I'm really sorry, but Nepal is in a Tropical area. Then You have to take count that, you'll be there in MAY, the hotest month in India/Nepal area. Snow is only in Himal, in Mountain, and in Nepal a 3500mt high mountain is not a mountain but a Hill. it's really rare to find snow also at 3000meters of altitude in the winter, so how could you find it in May?

the snow is in the mountains and no one of this place with snow is reachable by car. you can choose to do a trekking to the base camp of annapurna, or machhapucchare or everest, and after 6 days walk you'll reach the snow.

By car not possible.

Mero namaskar

Namaste jee....

Thank you very much for your detailed description of the weather in Nepal.

We have now preponed our vist to the middle of April...but ofcourse we do not expect to have snow.

However, we really hope the weather will be cool and comfortable.

Dhayawad...Namastey

The weather will be warm. If you want to see the snow and touch it, you can go in Ladakh, in India. You take a flight to Leh from Delhi. then when you're in Leh, you can go to Khardung La and go back by car in one day. This Pass is the highest pass of the world that you can cross by car. Here there's lot of snow. You'll be at more than 5600 mt.

Namaste
