Do you know when are the best seasons for the trek to the Everest region? Before trekking around the Everest region to know the best time and best seasons. Usually, Nepal has 4 major seasons winter, spring, monsoon, and autumn. We would highly recommend the autumn and spring season for a trek in Nepal. Both seasons are more favorable and the best time to spend the beautiful time around the high mountains and Himalayas. March to May would be a warmer climate to climb the legendary peaks such as Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Manaslu, Kanchanjunga and other expeditions too. The Autumn season (September to November) highly preferred time to trek around the various Himalayas and stunning views of mountains.
The best is from March to May and Mid-September to December months during spring, autumn and pre-winter seasons. Where temperatures will be pleasant during the daytime at spring times with much longer daylight hours, an enjoyable trek with wildflowers especially the rhododendron, magnolia in the blooming season.
However, the morning and night time will be cold with chances of snow and cloudy afternoon sometimes. Mid-September to December are a clear fine day for walks and to capture views of high snow-capped peaks, but much colder morning and night time with freezing temperatures where sunlight hours are much shorter around autumn and pre-winter times. For adventurous and challenging treks that involve high passes April and May with September till November will be perfect, later winter months can get deep snow and it will be difficult to find the right path.
