Trekking Season

Trekking in Nepal can be undertaken throughout the year depending on the region. 

There are 4 seasons

Autumn ( Sept- Nov) : The best season offering excellent weather and tantalizing mountain views.

Winter   ( Dec- Feb) :  The ideal season for trekking at lower altitude, generally below than 3300 metres.

Spring ( March – May) : The second best trekking season. The temperature is quite moderate, the rhododendrons are in blossom and the mountain views are excellent.

Summer (June- August ) : This is the favorite season to trek in the rain shadow areas like Mustang, Upper Manang and Dolpo. This season is also recommended for forest researchers and botanist. 

Warning: raincoats and insect repellents are strictly necessary in this period.
