Nepal holiday during the Ramadan and Eid Holiday

Travel to Nepal during Ramadan and Eid holiday

Travellers residing in the Middle East are increasingly choosing to take extended vacations and visit Nepal during the Ramadan and Eid season. Nepal experiences a surge in the number of bookings for trekking and tours prior to the Ramadan holidays. The majority of these travellers are non-Muslim individuals residing in the Middle Eastern nation.

According to a report published in Khaleej Times, Raheesh Babu, COO of an UAE based travel management company said Roughly 25 – 28 per cent of the bookings made by customers are choosing longer holiday packages. “We are witnessing this trend because this year Eid Al Fitr holidays are aligned with school spring breaks, which means many families are able to take longer time off.

With Ramadan - Eid holiday followed by weekend and the Spring term breaks, it is much easier for travellers to take at least a week off for Nepal treks and tours.
What makes Nepal the best destination to travel during Ramadan and Eid holiday ?

Kopila Sen, the Managing Director of 'i Tour Nepal P Ltd', concurred with the rise in the number of trekkers and travelers during the Eid Al Fitr holiday.She emphasized that Nepal is increasingly becoming a sought-after active holiday destination for individuals working or living in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait. The company has been providing a comprehensive week-long trekking itinerary as well as luxury holiday packages in Nepal. With Nepal being just a 4-hour flight away, the extension of airstrips and dirt roads has enabled the customization of popular treks like the Annapurna base camp within a week. Moreover, the month of April offers the best weather conditions for a variety of activities.

Nepal travel tips during the Ramadan and Eid Holiday

Nepal travel tips during Ramadan and Eid Holiday

  • The last week of March through the third week of April marks the peak tourist season for Nepal. To steer clear of the crowds, it is advisable to plan your trip to Nepal accordingly.
  • Make sure to secure your flight, accommodation, and tour arrangements well in advance.
  • Opt for destinations that are not part of the main tourist hubs. Popular spots such as Kathmandu, Chitwan, and Pokhara tend to be in high demand during the Ramadan and Eid holidays.
  • Consider exploring Bardia National Park, Koshi Tappu, and quaint hill station towns like Daman, Bandipur, and Tansen.
  • It is recommended to avoid the traditional trekking routes. There are numerous lesser-known trekking paths such as Khopra Ridge Trek, Pikey Peak Trek, Three Pass Trek (Everest), and more.
  • Be prepared for light rain or snow at higher elevations, along with the possibility of thunderstorms and strong winds in the late afternoon. To avoid adverse weather conditions, start your day early to reach your destination on time.

February Tour Review

Fantastic first time visit

Our family recently toured Kathmandu, Nagarkot, Bhaktapur, Pokhara and Chitwan using the services of Rabindra and iTourNepal. Everything was fantastic—from initial communications via email to tailoring activities to appeal to a 9-year old. Rabi arranged for us to have lunch and visit a raptor rescue and parahawking center in Pokhara because we expressed interested in birdwatching. When we mentioned that that one member of our party was a professional chef, Rabi arranged for us to have lunch and a tour of an organic farm outside of Bhaktapur. .....
We found Rabi and his associates to be punctual, flexible, knowledgeable and kind—in fact, perfect hosts for a perfect 10-day vacation. 'i Tour Nepal' particularly specializes in personalized small group tours, and we can not recommend them highly enough.
