Nepal has four seasons and they can be described as follows:

Spring (March, April, May)

This is the pre-monsoon season. The weather is generally fine but there can be more overcast days. As the monsoon approaches, thunderstorms become more common, usually in the evening, and the temperature rises. Early spring is an excellent time for trekking.

Summer (June, July, August)

This is the monsoon period. It rains most days during this time of the year with frequent thunderstorms, most often in the evening or night. The days become quite hot and sticky.

Autumn (September, October, November)

The post-monsoon season brings an end to the rains and a return to clear and dry weather. The latter half of autumn is an excellent time for trekking as the weather is not too cold or too hot.

Winter (December, January, February)

Winter has dry days and clear skies with occasional snowfall (more at higher altitudes) still with warm days but nights can get quite chilly. Again a good trekking season, for lower altitude treks.

If trekking at high altitude it is advisable to come prepared as the weather can get extremely cold. Contact us for further information about suitable clothing for your treks.
