Best trekking and Visiting time in Nepal
Nepal Trekking can be undertaken whole of the year. Mostly there are four seasons in Nepal. Each season has its different attraction to offer the tourist. Nepal trekking season is as follows:
|AUTUMN||September, October, November|
|WINTER||December, January, February|
|SPRING||March, April, May|
|SUMMER||June, July, August|
AUTUMN (September to November) :
Autumn season is defined as the best time for trekking in Nepal, which offers excellent weather and Clear Mountain views with blue sky. Moderate temperatures, clear sky with panoramic views, making it a best time to do any of Nepal trek. Occasional short storms may happen and snow at high altitudes.
WINTER (December – February) :
Winter season is time for occasional snowfall at higher elevations in the Himalayas. And the best time to visit Nepal to play snow at high altitude. Nevertheless, it gets the coldest night but it offers the clear day and blue sky and perhaps less trekkers on the trail. But it is not best time for climbing and high passes trek. Trek like Everest base camp, Annapurna sanctuary can be done even in winter.
Varieties of flowers, especially Rhododendrons make the hillside a paradise during this season. It is mildly warm season at lower elevations and at the higher elevation, the mountain views are an excellent and similar season like autumn. Hence, this is the best time to visit Nepal.
Summer season from June till mid-September makes travel wet and warm but it is raining and clouded. This season are blessed for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and blossom with flowers and vegetation. Trekking in Upper Mustang and Dolpo could be an ideal trek selection in this season. Mostly it is not the best time of trekking in Nepal. This is my favorite and best time to visit any place of Nepal.
Most of the Nepal treks like Everest base camp or Annapurna Sanctuary can be done on autumn spring and winter whereas Dolpo, Upper Mustang trek is good even in summer. Because there is not much rain even summer.
