Best Time for Hiking in Nepal
The spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons are the best time to enjoy trekking in Nepal. These seasons offer a moderate temperature and calm weather conditions to trek. However, summer/monsoon (June to August) and winter (December to February) seasons see severe weather conditions. The monsoon brings heavy rainfall, which makes the trails slippery and difficult to trek on. Similarly, the winter season brings a cold climate and harsh weather conditions, especially in the high-altitude regions of the Himalayas.
The trails in the Upper Dolpo and Upper Mustang treks lie in the rain-shadows of Dhaulagiri Himalayas. So, trekking to these regions is possible even during the summer season. Likewise, short and easy hikes around Kathmandu valley like Nagarkot Changunarayan Hike to the Annapurna Panorama trek can be done in the winter season also.
