July /early August in Nepal is the middle of the Monsoon – So not an ideal time to go as apart from it raining a lot, when it stops it soon gets Very Hot and Very Sticky – So not the weather conditions you are looking for ;-)

I can’t comment on Sri Lanka, as although I have been there, it wasn’t in July/early August

Good Luck and Happy Safe Travels

Next to this in summer season visibility of the Himalaya is often quite low in Nepal due to the same clouds that cause the rain. Spring and fall are the best tourist seasons...

All the best,

July / August is definitely not a good time for Nepal if you have options to select. As you read the comments from other regular travelers to Nepal it's monsoon season, visibility is poor and it rains most of the time. If you see Sri Lanka has better weather at that time then probably visiting there would be worth.

Sorry, haven't been to Sri Lanka!
