Nepal Trekking Season

Gokyo Lake Trekking

Trekking in Nepal can be undertaken throughout the year depending on the season of the year and region of your trek. The tourist arrival pattern suggests that Nepal has two main trekking seasons – From February to May and late August to December. Especially, the period between September to December is considered to be the main tourist season in Nepal.

However, trekking is possible at any time of the year if you choose the destination according the time of your visit. Perhaps, the most uncomfortable period is the rainy season from the middle of June to the middle of September. The monsoon rains cover most part of southern plains and middle mountains during this period. Some people like the botanists, and those interested in rain forests find even this period a memorable experience.
