Nepal is suitable for different kinds of treks as lodge or tea house trek and camping trek, depending upon your budget, fitness level, but the most important thing to be considered while trekking here in Nepal is the weather. Many people ask, “What is the best time or season to trek in Nepal?” and what we can say is travelers can experience trekking almost any time or season of the year in Nepal. You can experience absolutely different colors of nature in each season you visit here in Nepal. The weather conditions and its environment depend upon the elevation of your trek and the destination itself.
These are certain information you need to keep in mind about the various season while trekking in the great Himalayas:
Spring Trekking Season - March to May
Spring trekking season is considered to be Cool/Warm and Fresh, as the winter season is almost at its end you can experience warm weather while you are trekking in the day light while the weather would still be cold in the night. As the weather starts to warm up, rhododendrons starts to bloom, mustard fields color the farmlands and the forest begins to come more alive. The weather is dry, with low to no chances of rainfall and snow, so the views of the Himalayas are clearer in the morning and at night time but bit unclear in the evening. The temperature will be warmer and comfortable at higher altitudes as from may the temperature starts to rise a lot.
Summer Trekking Season – Mid June to Mid Sept
This is the season of the rain where monsoon starts in Nepal. This season usually starts from mid of the july and lasts till mid of September. If you do want to trek in this season then do consider on which area you are traveling to, as monsoon rains brings landslides to some areas in the hills depending upon the location. The weather is hot and wet. Rainfalls occur frequently for limited number of hours per day. Trails are slippery and you might also face leeches problem in this season. Trekking can be done but it would be bit difficult compared to spring and fall. But on the bright side you will find less trekkers on the trail, and you will get to experience some of the most exotic views of the lush green jungles, blooming flowers and some of the most beautiful Himalayan scenery when the rain stops and the skies are fresh and clear. We do recommend you to try out Mustang and Dolpo region, as the area has no to less amount of rainfall and the environment is mostly dry.
Autumn Trekking Season: Mid Sept – End Nov
This is the most popular trekking season for trekkers as the climate is cool and the skies crystal clear. You can consider this season as the perfect time for trekking in the Himalayas as you will get to see the most stunning views of the mountains while you hike through the trail, the sunny, yet cool day light will always be there. Weather is mostly stable, but while trekking in higher altitude the temperature would still be cold, and the nights would be freezing too, what can you expect it’s Himalayas!!
Winter Trekking Season: End Nov – Mid Feb
The winter begins in the land of the Himalayas where the temperature is cold and windy. This is also a good season to trek in the Himalayas as you will get to experience the shining Himalayas blanketed in white snow and all the landscapes resembles as that of an wonderland. Yet there are still things to be considered, as trekking high up in the Himalaya can be considered dangerous as the temperature is very cold, bitter and dangerous in high altitude. High passes as Gosainkunda Trek, Thorung-la and others are usually closed in this season. Tea- houses and local lodges in some part (mostly less visited routes as Makalu, manaslu) may be closed in this time of the year.
