The best time to trek is the dry season from October to May. The worst time is the monsoon season period from June to September. This generalization does not allow for the peculiarities of individual treks. Some people claim that the undeniable difficulties of trekking during the monsoon are outweighed by the virtual absence of western trekkers.
The first three months of the dry season from mid-September to mid-December offer the best weather for trekking around the Himalayas in Nepal. The air freshly washed by the monsoon rains is crystal clear, the mountain scenery is superb and the weather is still comfortably warm. December, January, and February are still good months for trekking but are too cold and frozen on the trail.
From March to May, the weather has been dry for a long time and dust is starting to hang in the air, affecting visibility. The poorer quality of the Himalayan views is compensated for by the superb wildflowers such as the wonderful rhododendrons. Moreover, would highly recommend the autumn and spring seasons for hiking, trekking, and climbing in Nepal.
