The frosty weather of winter is one of the best times to check out Dhulikhel. While the month of January is supposed to be the coldest in the season, the night time temperatures remain well into the negative digits throughout winters.

Summers in Dhulikhel are not as extreme as those seen in majority parts of Kathmandu Valley area. Situated at an altitude of over 1500 m, the highest temperature witnessed during the hottest month of June here reaches up to a maximum of 25ᴼC. However, the monsoon rains are also quite heavy in this region and can prove to be a hindrance for hiking activities and scenic view opportunities. So not the very best time to visit.
