The two most pleasant seasons for trekking in Nepal are spring and autumn. The spring season is considered to be March to May. During the spring months flowers are in bloom in the forests so it can be quite beautiful though it can also be bit cloudy, especially in the afternoon. Autumn season is considered September through November In autumn season you will get the best mountain views, with clear skies usually all day long. The fall season is slightly cooler with average temperatures. December is also generally the driest month of the year. Trekking in Nepal is possible at any time of the year. It is worth remembering that we will get 75 percent of annual rainfall from the mid June through the August. This period is considered as the monsoon season. Winter in Nepal is considered December through February. These months are the coldest in temperatures depending on where you are. At higher altitudes in the Himalayas temperatures will drop below freezing and it can be extremely cold at night.
The most popular treks in Nepal are in the Everest region, Annapurna region and the Langtang region. In the Everest region you have opportunity to view the majestic mountains, monasteries of traditional Tibetan Buddhism and rich Sherpa culture. Annapurna region you have a choice between the rich forests and serene beauty of the Annapurna sanctuary or more remote higher altitude of Annapurna circuit to arid terrain of the Kali Gandaki valley up to Mustang. Langtang region is easily accessible from Kathmandu and completed within a week. We are specially run treks at High Solu area (Lower part of the Everest), wilderness treks to Dolpo, Manaslu and many more. Any one of these treks is an incredible experience. They usually take about one week to a month long. Best Nepal Trekking, a best trekking outfitter, can organize the complete packages for any of these and many other treks.
