December to February
It is winter in Nepal in these 3 months in Nepal. High altitude trekking can be unbearable because of the freezing cold, with many treks with high passes being close at this time of the year. This could be easily the best time to visit and do some moderate treks like Annapurna Base Camp, Everest Base Camp Trek, Langtang valley Trek, Ghorepani Poon hill Trek etc if a quiet, peaceful and less people on trails is your priority. The weather remains calm, rainfall is rare during these months and trekking is still very much possible and enjoyable as well.

March to May
The spring season falls during this time and is easily the busiest time of the year in some parts, Everest Trekking trail in particular being the busiest region. The days can get really hot, at times temperature crossing 30 degrees Celsius mark but the jungles with blossoming colorful Rhododendrons and other flowers with towering snow capped pinnacles at the background are an absolute delight to watch. March to May, along with October to November are the best months to trek in Nepal.

June to September
The worst time to trek in Nepal as heavy rains, floods and landslides are common until mid September. However, places like the Nar Phu Valley Trek,
Upper Dolpo and upper parts of Mustang are the places to be at this time of the year because of the least rainfall in these areas. Those places are the rain shadows located behind of the Himalayas in Nepal. Apart from these areas, all other areas are a nuisance to trek during these times because of the rains and the problems like leeches, muddy trails, cancelled flights so we mark these months as the least amongst the “Best time to Visit Nepal”.
