Best times to visit

Dry Season

Laos’ dry season can be further broken into a cool dry season (November to February) and a hot dry season (March to early May). The cool dry season is peak travel season, so expect crowds, while the hot dry season is extremely hot. 

Rainy Season

Nepal’s rainy season runs from mid May or June to October, with heavy downpours falling in sporadic bursts. Humidity is high but broken by the heavy rains, which bring cooler air and are followed by blue skies. 

Favourite Season

We love visiting Laos in the cool dry season between November and February. During these months the temperatures are not too hot and there is less chance of rain, leaving you to explore the country under clear, sunny skies. This is also Laos’s main holiday season.
