Monsoon & Autumn Trekking and Hiking in Nepal 2018

 Nepal Travel Advice

Full Trekking and Hiking Season in Nepal: October and November The months of October and November are peak trekking and hiking season in Nepal: temperatures are mild, the weather is relatively stable, and the clear air makes for superb mountain views. The high mountains are still cold and and lower elevations are still warm but the daytime walking temperatures are the most pleasant overall. Bad weather can hit any time of year but the fall has the most reliable conditions. The fall season is also when Nepal receives the bulk of trekkers. The most popular trails, such as Everest Base Camp and the Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna base camp, Manaslu are bustling with trekkers and this is felt from the trails to the teahouses. The Thamel district of Kathmandu will be full of tourists and guides charge at their highest rates during the fall peak season (although hiring a guide in Nepal Nepal guide info team give a very cheap price in Nepal)

Monsoon trekking seasons 2018 (Stay Away): May through August The summer from May through August generally is a poor time to trek in Nepal but if weather good you see the best views during the trek that my guide experience last 20 years   so (lower elevation hill treks and the drier Mustang and Dolpo regions can be exceptions to the rule). Significant heat and moisture rise up from the Indian Ocean, bringing hot temperatures, clouds, haze, and rain. This blocks the views, creates messy trails (with leeches), and leads to significant problems with ground transportation. The peak of the Monsoon season occurs in July when the weather begins to taper off into the drier fall period.  Moon
