Best Season

The best time to trek are Autumn (Sept. to Dec.) and Spring (March to May). The treks during Winter and Summer (monsoon) aren’t impossible but just quite challenging. For the best experience, the early and late Spring and Autumn would be preferable due to less tourist traffic.

During the early Spring, the vegetations look fresh with early flowers starting to bloom in several kinds of plants. The villages are full of activity in preparation of family farms for planting the crops. The days are generally sunny due to which they offer good scenery.

The early Autumn is fresh green after a period of warm rainy days from summer monsoon. The month long Nepali festivals of Dasain and Tihar can also coincide and the harvest time also starts in many of the villages.

The early Winter (late Autumn) is also a very good time if one prefers lower elevations in the Himalayas.
