Best time to do Mulde View Trek
The best time to trek in Nepal is the spring season (March, April, and May) and the autumn season (September, October, and November). Therefore these are the months to do Mulde Viewpoint Trek. Additionally, this trek can do during the winter season (December, January, and February) too because this trek is below 4000m and not extremely cold like Everest Base Camp, Thorong La Pass, and other popular treks. That is why this trek is three seasons trek in Nepal.
