  • Best Time to Trekking in Nepal

Nepal is the best place to trek in any season as it has its special features throughout the year. However, the spring(March, April & May) and Autumn (September, October & November) seasons are considered to be the best season to trek in Nepal.

In the Monsoon season (June, July, and August), Due to heavy rainfall, it might get quite difficult to trek.

During the winter season (December, January, and February) is needed to think before trekking because most trekking site is in the Himalayan region. Therefore, it is the cold season for trekking in Nepal.
