  • Autumn season

The post-monsoon season days are very cristal clear and remain very excellent all the day, with blue sky and clear visibility. The temperatures are neither hot nor cold and at this time rainfall is unlikely to happen so it is the best time to explore the mighty Himalayas and the trails to the Himalayas.

  • Spring season

    The Spring season (March, April and May) is the second-best season in Nepal for the trekking holidays in Nepal. Trek-like Annapurna base camp can be done without most of the natural obstacles. Stunning weather with sun, clear sky, good temperatures and clear visibility allows hikers to enjoy the Annapurna base camp trek very much. The summer days are warmer so it is a very appropriate time to do the expeditions on Mt Everest and other high mountains. In the lower valley, you can see the rhododendron forest with tons of rhododendron flowers which makes the hike, even more, nicer than normal time.

  • Monsoon season

    The monsoon season starts on June 10 and lasts till September 15 around. It is considered one of the bad seasons for trekking in the Himalayas because It rains a lot, the sky is cloudy, very less chance to see the mountain. Leeches, floods and landslides are common on the trekking trails. This is not a good time to do the Annapurna circuit trek but if you are lucky you can see the mountains this time as well.

  • Winter seasons

    These months, generally it’s cold months of the year. Most of the tourist doesn’t do any adventure activities.
