Nepal Trekking Tours in Spring (March – May)

Spring is always the best time for every best tour all around the world, and trekking in Nepal is not an exception. When it comes to warm temperatures, temperate days, and blossoming flora, it’s time for you to head to Nepal to get into trekking. In spring, every trekking trail is ultimately adorned with blooming rhododendron forests along with different varieties of wildflowers making the hillside a charming paradise. As winter faded away, the climate in early spring tends to be chilly making way for sunny, warm, and clear trekking conditions.Best Time Trek Nepal – When you Trek

Nepal Trekking Tours in Summer (June – August)

Trekking during this period is not typically recommended because, in summer, the monsoon rains tend to occur from late May to September. This time, the temperature is high, lower routes are generally muddy with leaches, and mountainous regions are usually enveloped in clouds but, it doesn’t mean that you are not able to experience the beauty of the Himalayan regions. The Mustang trek is the best trekking trails during summer.the best time to trek in nepal

After the monsoon, the dust and pollution are cleared from the atmosphere that makes way for stunning views along with breathtaking panoramas of the Himalayan Mountain. Short storms can occasionally occur during this period.nepal trek best time to go

Nepal Trekking Tours in Winter (December – February)

For those who want to enjoy off-beaten-path treks, winter is the best time to do such a thing. The weather can be cold this time yet offers you the tranquil and serene ambiance.
