Visa Permit
Required by all except the following:

(b) Transit passengers continuing their journey by the same or first connecting aircraft on the same day provided holding valid onward or return documentation and not leaving the airport.
The King Prithvi Narayan Shah had quoted Nepal as "Char Jaat Chhattis Barna Ko Sajha Fulbari". That is, the country of multi-language, multi-culture. People of Nepal live peacefully, without any customs and traditions running deep in mind.
Few Nepalese get the chance to travel abroad, or even to see foreign films or media, so their only exposure to the outside world is through travelers. This puts a great responsibility on visitors to be sensitive to Nepali ways and values, and to project a favorable image of foreigners.
Many different ethnic groups coexist in Nepal , all with their own complex customs. In the Kathmandu Valley, where they mix the most, there's a necessarily high degree of tolerance of different clothes and lifestyles - a fact that travelers sense, and often abuse.
The dos and don'ts listed here aren't as inflexible as they might sound. You'll make blunder all the time and Nepalese will rarely say anything.

October-November, the start of the dry season, is in many ways the best time of the year and the country is lush after the monsoons. February-April, the tail end of the dry season, is the second-best period: visibility is not so good because of dust, but the weather is warm and many of Nepal's wonderful wild flowers are in bloom. In December and January the climate and visibility are good but it can be freezing. The rest of the year is fai rly unpleasant for travelling:

They bring buffaloes, chickens, ducks, goats, sheep and pigs, which are dispatched by having their throats slit or heads lopped off. These animals, some still writhing, are then dragged to a nearby stream where they are butchered for a feast at a later date. The blood runs freely every Saturday and especially during the October festival of Dasain when the image of Kali is literally bathed in the stuff.
