Trekking Season

Trekking in Nepal can be undertaken throughout the year. There are four distinct seasons in Nepal. Each season has its distinct attractions to offer. The seasons are classified as follows:

Autumn (Sept. - Nov.)
This season offers excellent weather and tantalizing mountain views.

Winter (Dec. - Feb.)
This season is noted for occasional snowfall only at higher elevations. Hence it is ideal for trekking at lower elevation, generally below 3000 meters.

Spring (Mar. - May)
Different varieties of wild flowers, most notably the rhododendrons, make the hillside above 5000 meters a haunting paradise during this season. It is mildly warm at lower elevations, and at higher elevations over 4000 meters, the mountain views are excellent and temperature is quite moderate.

Summer (June - Aug.)
Summer months, which constitute the monsoon season, continue up to mid-September during which trekking is wet and warm. These times are good for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and meadows blossom with flowers and lush vegetation. It is not recommend to trek during summer months.
