“Nepal for All Session”, this slogan trying to prove, that Nepal is suitable for touristic activities whole in the years around. We have manly four different sessions in the year Spring Trekking Season (March-May), Monsoon /summer (June-July-August-September), Autumn (Mid- September to early December), and Winter (December- February).

Generally spring (March-May) and Autumn (September – November) are the two-season considered to be trekking seasons in Nepal. But most consider the best trekking season in the Himalayas to be September to mid-December. During this season Nepal has a pleasant climate, neither too hot nor too cold, and clear mountain views. The warm days make this season favorable for outdoor activities, trekking, touring, and expeditions. During the winter you can do short and easy trek in low elevation. The spring season is another great season for trekking. After winter, when the sun gets warmer in the springtime, many trekkers head to the Himalayas to enjoy a comfortable climate. In spring many different types of flowers bloom both on trees and on the ground, especially Rhododendron and Magnolia. That’s why the spring trekking season is also known as rhododendron trekking. The Spring season is the best time for mountaineering, peak climbing, and other expedition in Nepal.

During the winter trekking season, we provide short and easy treks around the countryside areas of Nepal, which offer a glimpse into the culture of Nepal and the lives of Nepalese people who live in remote areas. Winter is very cold above 4,000m and high mountain passes may be snowbound so it is preferable to trek at lower altitudes. The monsoon seasons (June, July, and August) are better for short treks. During the monsoon season, you can go trekking in the rain-shadow areas north of the Himalayans like Mustang, Upper Manang, and Dolpo. These places are out of reach of the rain clouds because of the high mountains and are unaffected by the monsoon. During the monsoon in Nepal, it is also recommended to travel to Tibet (May to September).
