Travel Season:

Nepal has the widest altitude range of any country on earth. Each altitude has its own weather, from tropical heat to Arctic cold. 

In the main trekking seasons in the spring (March/April) and autumn (October/November), the weather is generally stable and even the high passes may be free of snow and relatively easy to traverse at times. 

But beware, you are heading into the World’s highest mountain range and be prepared for changes of temperature and weather. And though this period is generally expected to be dry as everywhere, rainfall and gloomy weather may occur making the mountains less visible. 

Sudden, snow may be experienced at high altitudes blocking the trail and bringing with it freezing temperatures.

The monsoon season roughly starts mid-May/June and runs to the end of August. During this period rainfall and muddy trails may be expected and the possibility to see mountains is less as compared to the main trekking seasons. Travelers who valued greenery and quiet environments will love traveling during monsoon season.
