Generally, we can trek in Nepal all round the year. However, autumn and spring are the two best seasons of the year. Majority of trekkers love to trek in Nepal in autumn (Sep-Nov). Autumn is delightful and pleasant. The weather is magnificent. We neither receive rain nor snow. The mountain views are incredible. So, autumn is the best time of the year to trek in Nepal.

Similarly, Spring (Mar-May) is an equally important season to trek in Nepal. Spring is relatively hotter. But, the flowering rhododendron blanketing the trekking trails and the entire hills will be superb. The mountain panoramas are equally breathtaking in Spring.

We can’t trek alone in restricted areas of Nepal like Manaslu, Makalu, Upper Mustang, Upper Dolpo and the like. We need at least two people for these restricted areas trekking in Nepal.
