In Nepal, there are mainly four main seasons to consider: Spring, Autumn, Winter, and Monsoon. There is tremendous variation in climates. There will be different changes in different lands as well. The lowland plains are topical, the midland hills are temperate and the high mountains have sub-arctic and there will be cold conditions.

Mostly, trekkers have clarified that the best seasons are fall and spring, which offer the best coherence, the weather will be relatively stable, and you can feel the fresh air which makes for superior mountain views.

The summer monsoon (June to Sept) brings freshness and makes you magnified. Autumn season (Sept to late Nov) and spring (Feb to mid-April) are the best seasons because autumn brings clarity to the environment where dust and bugs are wiped away by monsoon.

Spring days are warmer and longer, where you can explore more about the journey. Similarly, Winter season in Nepal(Dec to Jan ), in this season there won’t be much snow in the Himalayan region so it will be chilly.

When planning a trek in Nepal you also have to plan about the seasons and have a little knowledge about the seasons that you are planning to go.

Here are the main four seasons that I have given a brief intro about the season to:

The Spring Season
Spring Season

This season is best for trekking and is the most active time of the year to trek in Nepal. Spring season is most suitable for trekking and climbing.

The days are long, and you spend your time exploring your tour. In this season the temperatures are hot and too hot, and trekkers can take occasional showers and the trails up to the tree line. The most refreshing part is that the national colorful flower Rhododendron starts to ablaze in this season.

The Annual temperatures and humidity peak in May just before the start of the summer monsoon season which brings an end to the spring trekking season. Where the temperature is mildly warm at the lower surface. March, April, and May are considered the best for trekking in Nepal.

Similarly, there will be quite moderate at higher altitudes over 4000m above where it provides amazing and jaw-dropping mountain views. Moreover, after reaching 3000m above which makes a higher altitude where you can see everything at the ground surface which makes it more comfortable and exciting.

The Summer Season
Summer Season


The Summer season starts at the end of May and it extends till the end of August in Nepal. Summer Season is also the best season to trek, mainly in the mountain areas considering the amazing weather.

In this season the weather is clear and as well as the weather is clear as well. In this season the temperature is a little bit hotter than in other seasons but it is comfortably sufferable, this season and the scene is blooming season.

A lot of trekkers make a plan to trek in this season. During this monsoon season, there will be heavy rainfall which makes your trip unfavourable during these this monsoon months. In this season the temperature is high with heavy and recurring rainfall.

In this season the main problem is heavy rains can bring flood in the trails and cause mudslides so that is not a good time to trek in most of Nepal’s Trekking regions.

The Autumn Season
Autumn Season

In this, the weather is magnificent weather conditions. So autumn is best for the trek in October and November

Compared to other seasons like January and February in these months the weather is very cold and it is impossible to trek in high mountains. Some people do this to experience the snowy trek.

On the other hand, seasons like June to mid-September it is the season of rain and high rainfall in Nepal so the trekking adventure can be slippery but not impossible. In the Autumn the clear skies and incredibly very good weather. The temperature is moderate, so you can make plans for any trekking and expedition to Nepal.

The sky is generally clear with outstanding views. Occasionally short storms may dump considerable snow at high altitudes. In this Autumn you can go Trekking in Nepal anywhere.

The Winter Season
Winter Season

This winter season is cold and has clear trekking conditions. The season in Nepal ranges from December to February. In this season the temperature is low but the sight of mountains is usually.

In this season the dry and cold air facilities lower the chances of rain and snowfall. Awesome views and quiet trails are the benefits of doing the trek in winter and the other benefit is that it is the great season to capture the magic of the mountains.

In this season the main problem is there will be the heaviest snowfall in the mountains which can be blanketing trails and block high passes. Winter, is a deal for trekking in lower elevations if you are looking for suitable and incredible scenery.
