Between October and December is the best time to visit Nepal as the skies are generally clear and the views spectacular. The weather remains dry until about April. January and February can be very cold, especially at night, but will reward you with incredible panoramas and quieter trekking trails as there are fewer visitors. Late spring is a beautiful time to travel as the rhododendrons burst into bloom. From May, heat and humidity levels build until the monsoon rains arrive in June and the clouds obscure the glorious mountain views. Nepal celebrates festivals all year, so there is often a festival or pilgrimage taking place - please contact us for more details as the dates often change from year to year.
1. September, October and November (Autumn):
This is the best trekking season in Nepal which offers you excellent weather and wonderful mountain views. The trekking trails will be full of trekkers.
2. March, April and May (Spring):
The second premium trekking season in Nepal. The temperature is quite moderate, especially since the rhododendrons (The national flower of Nepal) are in complete blossom and the mountain views are excellent.
3. June, July and August (Summer):
This is the most preferable season to trek in the rain shadow areas like upper Mustang, around Annapurna, Upper Manang, Manaslu and Upper Dolpo, etc. these regions are out of reach of the rain clouds because of the huge mountains, and unaffected by the monsoon. This season is also good for forest researchers and botanists, during this time trek raincoats and insect repellents are strictly required.
4. December, January and February (Winter):
This is winter in Nepal will be cold for high mountain trekking but still a suitable time for trekking and hiking at lower altitudes normally below 3500m.
