Trekking in Nepal can be undertaken throughout the year. There are four seasons for hiking in Nepal. Each season has its distinct attraction to offer. The trekking season in the Himalayas is classified as follows:
Best Time for Hiking in Nepal
AUTUMN (Sept - Nov):
This Autumn season is considered the Best Time for Trekking in Nepal, which offers excellent weather and tantalizing mountain views. Moderate temperatures, clear sky with outstanding views, making it a great time to do any of our treks. Occasional short storms may dump snow at high altitudes. You can choose any of the adventure trips this Autumn season in the Himalaya from Trekking in Nepal to Climbing in Nepal. Climbing expedition to the Amadablam Expedition and Manaslu Expedition is best this Autumn.
WINTER (Dec - Feb):
This season is noted for occasional snowfall at higher elevations in the Himalayas. Though it gets colder at the night, often it offers a clear day / blue sky and relatively fewer trekkers on the trail. However, we need to be selective in choosing the winter trekking as climbing and crossing high passes trip won't be an ideal option. Nepal Treks like Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Panorama Trek, Annapurna Dhaulagiri Trek, Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, Everest Panorama Trek, etc can be done even in winter.
Different varieties of wildflowers, especially the rhododendrons make the hillside a haunting paradise during this spring season. It is mildly warm at lower elevations and at higher elevations the mountain views are excellent and the temperature is quite moderate. Spring season is the best time to do the Everest Expedition in the Himalayas. You can select any out of more than 100 adventure trekking and climbing trips this season for the adventure of a lifetime.
Summertime starts from June till mid-September makes travel wet and warm. These times are blessed 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 Trek and Dolpo Trek could be an ideal trek selection this Summertime in the Himalaya.
