Nepal Travel advice
Trekking in Nepal Do read my full article on when is the best time of year to go trekking and hiking in Nepal for a full overview which it makes it easy to pick the best season to go trekking and hiking . Meanwhile here’s a monthly breakdown.
What’s it like to trek in Nepal in June and July?
My “advice” and my my guide experience for June trekking and hiking in Nepal I would also be to do a trek like the Annapurna Circuit as the best section of this is in the Himalayan Rain Shadow and this are gets very little rain even in the middle of the monsoon as it is to the north of the main Himalayan chain and 90% of the rain falls on the southern slopes (Neither Everest Base Camp, Langtang, Ghorepani Poon Hill, Jomsom Muktinath or ABC treks are in the Himalayan Rain Shadow) Places like Tilicho Lake (Possible side extension of AC from Manang) are Best visited at this time of year –Tilicho Lake.
Ok you will get a bit wet on your first few days trekking but once above Pisang the weather will improve, then you have three choices on the Kali Gandaki side from Jomsom, – Fly, Jeep or get wet again and trek.
Alternatively if your budget is bigger than Upper Mustang is another excellent choice for this time of year 2017. One thing to mention is that you need a minimum of two people to trek Upper Mustang (Or you have to pay double the permit price i.e. 2 x $500!!)
Nepal Guide Info officially opens during June in Nepal from Everest to the Annapurna Region, Upper Mustang, Dolpa and Mt Kailash. The problem is the heavy humid heat, hazy views and the upcoming monsoon season. Avoid distant or unmarked trails due to the increasing risk of landslides.
