Then you are in the right place to know but you need to read the whole article. Because I am trying to write the details about the best time to do trekking in Nepal. Here you can read month-by-month details about trekking in Nepal.
Trekking in January
January is the first month of the year in the English calendar and in the Nepali calendar, this month is the 9th and 10th Nepali month. As the Nepali calendar, January is the winter season, and very cold in the Himalayas. Most of the trekking regions are mostly full of snow and icy trails. Therefore cold and snow in the region are the reasons January is not a good month to do trekking in Nepal.
Trekking in February
February is also known as the winter season and it’s the ending month of the winter season. Still, in the mountains, there is a lot of snow, especially in the higher part of the mountains. So that, February is also considered the bad time to do trekking in Nepal. But some treks that can do during February are Langtang Valley Trek, Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, Mardi Himal Trek, Everest Panorama Trek, etc.
Trekking in March
Well, the good news – is that March is the beginning of the spring season and this season is the best season to do trekking in Nepal. And March month is the start of the spring season so, there is all the trekking trails are open for the trek. We can do any treks during this month although there can be some effect of the snow from February or from the winter seasons.
Trekking in April
April is one of the best months to do trekking in Nepal. Because during this period weather will be clear and the temperature will be perfect to do trekking in the Himalayas. Therefore, you can do any treks during April such as Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Circuit Trek, Manaslu Trek, Kanchenjunga Trek, etc.
So you have questions about which month is the best for trekking in Nepal? Then the answer is that April is the best during the spring season.
Trekking in May
March, April and May consider as the spring trekking season in Nepal. That is why May also one of the good trekking season in Nepal, although, the last week of the May might be a bit rain. But because of the global warming and climate change it’s not predicable so that it can be good or bad all depend on your luck. Still, during the May there might be high chances of getting beautiful view of the rhododendron flowers. And the breathtaking Mountain Views too.
Trekking in June
June is the beginning of the summer season in Nepal, as everyone know that summer is the worst time to visit Nepal. Because during the summer season in Nepal will be rain and other natural disasters can happen. Most of the famous trekking trail like Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang will be open but there can not be the best views like March and April. So that May is not the good month to do trekking in Nepal.
Trekking in July
July is the second month of summer season in Nepal. That means this month is definitely not the right choice for trekking in Nepal’s Himalayas. During July mostly rains and can be landslides and floods in most parts of the country. However, this month some treks are doable such as Mustang Tiji Festival Trek. And the usual date of this festival is also between May and June.
Trekking in August
August is known as the last month of the summertime in Nepal. So that this month is neither a good nor a bad time to do trekking in Nepal. Although during this month can be very rainy or very hot weather in Kathmandu and Pokhara as well as some of the trekking regions too. Like June and July, during August also rain and wetlands everywhere, and leech can be the biggest challenge in the lower land of the trekking trails.
Trekking in September
Well, September is the beginning of the autumn season. And the autumn season is the second best season for trekking in Nepal. However, during September there can be a bit of rain, and the effect of the rain so that this month is not very best for walking in the Himalayas. But the end of the month is always the outset of trekking season in Nepal. Therefore this month can be a good time to do trekking in Nepal but can not be the very best time for trekking in Nepal.
Trekking in October
October is the best month for trekking in Nepal during the fall season. Because in the October season the weather will be perfect for a trek and the temperature will be suitable for walking in the mountains. Naturally, the mountains and surrounding views will be blue sky, white mountains, and a clear view of everything. So that if you have a question about which month is best for trekking in Nepal? Then my answer is that October month is the best.
Trekking in November
The month of November is the third month of the fall season in Nepal. Like September and October, November is also considered a suitable time for trekking in Nepal. However, the last week of November is kind of the beginning of the winter months in Nepal. So that it might be a bit colder the other two months of the autumn season. Although the eye-catching views of the mountains and landscapes are the reasons to do trekking in Nepal in the month of November.
Trekking in December
December is the first month of the winter season in Nepal. Winter! Is the cold! So that doing trekking in December will be freezing cold. If you are afraid of the cold then even didn’t think to do any treks in Nepal. Because most of the trekking trails are full of snow, especially the high passes trekking trails. Such as Everest Three Pass Trek, Annapurna Circuit Trek, Upper Mustang Trek, etc.
Although some treks are doable during December, such as Ghorepani Poon Hill, Mardi Himal Trek, Langtang Valley Trek, Helambu Trek, etc. For more details, you can visit JRN Treks about trekking in Nepal.
