Best Season to Trek in Langtang Trekking Trails

When is the best time to trek in Nepal? This is a regular question on Nepal Trekking and Climbing. I say that Nepal is okay to trek throughout the year. There are four seasons (Winter, Summer, Spring & Autumn) in Nepal. Every three months, the season changes.

Spring and Autumn season is the best and ideal time to trek in the Langtang region and around the Himalayas of Nepal. This time of the year has mild temperatures and a clear sky. The region of Langtang is landslide-prone. Therefore, the monsoon is the worst rainy season so we can’t highly recommend treks now. The Winter season is okay to trek on some routes. However, routes like Ganja La and Gosainkunda trails would be blocked by snowfall in the winter season.

Flowers bloom and the landscape becomes green in the spring season. If you love greenery, trek in the spring season. The Autumn season is both pleasing and festive. Nepal celebrates many festivals in the autumn season. The sky is clear. The temperature is mild. Book a trekking trip for the autumn season. You will create memorable holiday moments.
