Best Winter Nepal Trek

Visiting Nepal the winter is a great season for shorter treks at lower elevations. December, January or February the temperatures are colder, but if you’re well prepared you can enjoy with clear skies and fewer crowds. So this time will be more peaceful and enough for sleeping and own room, especially higher mountain.

Highlights

  • Enjoy some of the most popular treks, such as Mardi Himal, Poon Hill, pikey, Nagarkot crowd-free
  • Get easily room and also nicer hotels in the low season especially high altitude area.
  • The mountain views are best with panoramic view in the winter, with clear weather almost guaranteed
  • Winter is considered the off-season, you will have no trouble getting a bed at tea houses (or cheaper rooms in Nepal’s cities)

Overview

While Nepal’s lower elevations not so cold cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara never see snow, the higher you go, the colder the temperatures. This means that some higher-elevation treks are not ideal in the winter, and some will be impassable with snow. Treks that stay below 4000 meters it will be safer and comfortable, as well. Also, Nepal’s winter is fairly short, so if you visit Nepal in beginning of December or late February, so you will likely see mild-to-warm temperatures at the time.

Although spring and autumn are the most popular times to visit Nepal, trekking in the winter has its distinct advantages. Very few rains in December, January, and February, so the skies will be most of the time clear.
This means the mountain views will be so great view. Because winter is considered the off-season, you will have no trouble getting a bed at tea houses (or cheaper rooms in Nepal’s cities). Plus, the trails will be less crowded, meaning you will have those clear views almost to yourself so it will be more enjoy fully.
