Best season for trekking in Nepal

Hiking and trekking are two of the world's most successful leisure activities. They may be excellent hobbies of delight if they are safe and successful. As a result, we must be very clear about when to stop doing these things before we start.

Hiking is doable in Nepal at whatever time of year. Autumn and spring are the best times to go hiking in Nepal. Every season has its own distinct personality. Autumn season lasts from September to November, whereas the Spring season lasts from March to May. Almost all of Nepal's areas are accessible during these two seasons.

Gurung Hill

During the spring season, Nepal enjoys a pleasant climate. The hills will be covered in rhododendrons, orchids, and other blooming plants. Autumn is the most gorgeous season in Nepal. The weather is warm even in the highlands. The days will be clear, providing for the greatest mountain views. These two seasons are perfect for people from all across the country.

In the wintertime, the Mountains are a bit cooler (December to January). The kind of moisture will be snowfall. On the other hand, the days continue to be nice and sunny. It only rains on rare occasions. If you prefer to walk on peaceful pathways and are willing to brave the cold, winter is a wonderful choice.

Nepal is hit by the summer monsoon. You should avoid the summer season (June to August). However, this season may be the best time to explore rain-shadow areas like Mustang and Manang.
