Trekking Seasons in Nepal 

Nepal is located in South Asia, just under the Himalayas, which have different landscapes starting from 60 meters to 8848 meters from sea level. So we have different climates because of the different heights. We have four seasons. Among them are Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Nepal has two touristic seasons in between. Autumn and Spring is the excellent season for trekking in Nepal. Autumn is a good time for trekkers, which is chill weather in the Himalayas of Nepal, and at the end, the temperature converted to Freezing winter. After winter again, the season starts as a spring when all the flowers bloom, and nature will be green. At the same time, you can see a clear sky and white mountains.

Autumn (September-November)
Among the four seasons in Nepal, Autumn is considered a better season for trekking and expedition in Nepal. This season offers the best weather and clear mountain views. Temperature is neither hot nor cold; It makes it suitable for trekking, tours, and expedition. May in high elevation snowing and light rain in the lower land.
Winter (December-February)
The weather is evident in the wintertime in Nepal. End of the year and the beginning of Christmas, our high mountain is cold with stunning views of the Himalayas. Temperature decreases day by day in the wintertime. This time is good for lower elevation treks like Ghorepani, Langtang, Helambu, etc.
Spring (March-May)    
According to Nepal weather, Spring is the second biggest trekking season in Nepal. This is a better trekking season and the best expedition time. During this season, flowers start to bloom, and greenery is all around. Climate will change from winter to spring; the upper freezing part of the Himalayas will begin to melt. In terms of western Nepal trekking trials like Ghorepani treks, Helambu trek, and Everest view treks are blooming with different varieties of Rhododendron flowers. 

Summer (June-August)
Trekking in Nepal is one of the prominent industries in Nepal. These three months are not a good time for trekking, but you can do some of them. This season is an ideal time for Trekking and a tour to Tibet; however, in some Trekking regions of Nepal, connecting to Tibet and desert parts of Nepal like Mustang, Nar-Phu valley, and Dolpo regions are the best seasons to do trekking which is summer trekking.
