Weather & Seasons

Weather Conditions

In the past few years, we have become all too familiar with the term 'Global Warming' and changing weather patterns in many parts of the world have had their impact on the Himalayas also. Unseasonal heat or cold, unexpected heavy rain, sudden storms and snowfalls have been recorded in different parts of Nepal for the past few trekking seasons. With this in mind it is important to be well prepared and expect the unexpected while trekking. The weather in the mountains can change in the blink of an eye and good gear preparation becomes an issue of safety. We will provide you with a comprehensive packing list for your specific trek and season so you can be sufficiently equipped. We can't control the weather, but we can and do work constantly to give you the holiday of a lifetime and ensure your safety and well-being at all times.

Trekking Seasons

Trekking in Nepal can be undertaken throughout the year depending on the region. The year is divided into 4 different seasons in Nepal and each season has its distinct attraction to offer for trekking.

Autumn (Sept-Nov) : This is the time when you can expect clear visibility, the air is fresh, and the weather is perfect. Most important Nepalese festivals of Dashain and Tihar are marked during this season. Autumn is considered the best trekking season offering excellent weather and tantalizing mountain views. This season is suitable for all trekking regions.

Winter (Dec-Feb) : This season is noted for occasional snowfall and the air can be quite cold at higher elevations. But it is usually very sunny and very clear weather so it's a perfect time for trekking at lower elevations (up to 3500m) if you don’t mind the cold. Best treks during this time are Panchassee, Sirubari, Sikles and Poon Hill.

Spring (March-May) : Trekking in spring is particularly lovely as the mountain slopes are covered with beautiful and colourful blooming flowers and the peaks still have plenty of snow after the winter to enchant your eyes and photos. The temperature is quite moderate and the mountain views are usually excellent. In higher areas like Annapurna Base Camp (4130m), snow may remain until mid April and in Thorong La (5416m) and Everest Base Camp (5364m) until the end of May or even June. This season is suitable for all trekking regions.

Summer (June-Aug) : This is the monsoon season in Nepal and the favourite season to trek in the rain shadow areas like Jomsom, Manang or Lower and Upper Mustang which remain dry for most of the year. This season is also recommended for forest researchers and botanists. Regular treks like Panchassee and Poon Hill or Annapurna Base Camp are best avoided in this season due to low cloud obscuring the mountain views, frequent rainfall and leeches.
