The traditional trekking season in Nepal is from October to May, with October and November generally recognize as having the best weather for trekking. There are four seasons in Nepal. Each season has its distinct attraction to offer. The seasons are classified as follows:
This season offers excellent weather and tantalizing mountain views. Temperature is moderate, making it a good time for any trekking. The skies are generally clear with outstanding views. Occasionally short storms may dump considerable snow at high altitudes.
The winter, there is usually snow fall only at the higher elevations, but risk winds and colder temperatures generally confine trekking to lower elevations. If you are looking for suitable and incredible scenery, this is a great time to Trek in lower elevations.
Different varieties of wild flowers, specially the rhododendrons make the hillside above 3000 m. a hunting paradise during this season. It is mildly warm at lower elevations and at higher elevation, over 4000m, the Mountain View are excellent while the temperature is quite moderate.
In most areas of Nepal the summer monsoon rainy weather makes trekking conditions unfavorable. However, in some regions bordering Tibet and in Tibet itself, the arid climate makes summer trekking a great alternative. The Mustang region lies in the rain shadow of the Himalayas, protected from most of the monsoon rains. Likewise, Tibet's high arid plateaus are ideal for summer trekking. The Annapurna region in north-central Nepal also receives significantly less rain than other parts of the country during the summer months and low-altitude, short treks in this region are recommended.
Summer trekking offeres the added advantage of enjoying trails and villages when there are few trekkers. You can enjoy the solitude and beauty of the mountains without any crowds.
I would like to higly recommend Annapurna Foothills Trekking for the great adventure they provided to me during the 3 weeks I spent with them! The trekking and climbing guides were excellent, always available and paying a special attention to any of my requests. I expect to come back again…Haidar Navi
My wife and I trekked the Manaslu Circuit with Ngima's Annapurna Foothills in late 2014. The trip, from start to finish, was nothing short of spectacular. Ngima and Tenzin were the warmest, most gracious hosts, and showed single-minded devotion to ensuring the trip's success, safety, and joyfulness.Merrick Kingston
