The temperature can be hot on days with clear skies with no rain and can be very pleasant for the views of the mountains so October November is the Best time to visit for Trekking and hiking in Nepal.
December to February Winter season in Nepal
It is winter in Nepal in these 3 months in Nepal. High-altitude trekking can be unbearable because of the freezing cold, with many treks with high passes being close at this time of the year. This could be easily the best time to visit and do some moderate treks like Annapurna Base Camp, Everest Base Camp Trek, Langtang Valley Trek, Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, etc if a quiet, peaceful and less people on trails is your priority. The weather remains calm, rainfall is rare during these months and trekking is still very much possible and enjoyable as well.
March to May Spring season in Nepal
The spring season falls during this time and is easily the busiest time of the year in some parts, the Everest Trekking trail, in particular, being the busiest region. The days can get really hot, at times temperatures crossing the 25 degrees Celsius mark but the jungles with blossoming colorful Rhododendrons and other flowers with towering snow-capped pinnacles in the background are an absolute delight to watch. March to May Spring season along with October to November autumn season are the best months to trek in Nepal.
June to September Monson season in Nepal
The worst time to trek in Nepal as heavy rains, floods, and landslides are common until mid-September. However, places like the Nar Phu Valley Trek, Upper Dolpo, and upper parts of Mustang are the places to be at this time of the year because of the least rainfall in these areas. Those places are the rain shadows located behind the Himalayas in Nepal. Apart from these areas, all other areas are a nuisance to trek during these times because of the rains and the problems like leeches, muddy trails, and canceled flights so we mark these months as the least amongst the “Best time to Visit Nepal”.
We Visit Himalaya Treks also advise travelers, to get full information regarding their visit before making their trip, and recommend the best time to visit Nepal.
