Trekking in Nepal can be undertaken throughout the year. There are four seasons in Nepal. Each season has its distinct attraction to offer. The seasons are classified as follows:
Autumn (Sept – Nov) : The Autumn season is considered to be the best time for trekking in Nepal as it offers excellent weather and tantalising mountain views – moderate temperatures, clear skies with outstanding views and little or no rain make it an excellent to do any of our treks. Occasional short storms may bring snow at high altitudes.
Winter (Dec – Feb) : This season is noted for occasional snowfall at higher elevations in the Himalayas. Though it gets colder at night, often it offers clear days / blue skies and relatively less trekkers on the trail. However, you need to be selective and rely on our expert advice when choosing winter trekking as climbing and crossing high passes treks will not be an ideal option.
Spring (March – May) : Different varieties of colourful wild flowers especially the magnificent rhododendrons make the hillsides haunting paradises during this spring season. It is mildly warm at lower elevations and at higher elevation the mountain views are excellent and temperature is quite moderate.
Summer (Jun-Aug) : Summer time from June till mid September makes travel wet and warm. These times are a blessing for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and meadows blossom with flowers and lush vegetation. Trekking in the rain-shadow (places are out of reach of the rain clouds because of the high mountains) areas north of the Himalaya like Upper Mustang and Dolpo could be ideal trek selections.
