Autumn season (September – November)


If you want to endeavor the beauty of Nepal to its fullest, then this season is the best one for you. This is the most preferred season when the weather is stable, dry and clear.

Winter season (December – February)


December to February is the coldest time of the year in Nepal. If you think cold weather is not a big deal, then this season is also a good season for trekking. However, trekking to high altitude is not recommended as everything is covered with snow and the temperature is very low. But as the weather is dry, this season can be awesome for those who would love to opt for trekking to the lower altitude regions of Nepal. If you have time, do Annapurna Base Camp Trekking in this season. Many other treks are available in the Annapurna region during this season and all of them provides exotic experience.

Nature has always been kind to its lovers and admirers. It has always been ready to offer them with whatever it has for them to shower with. But it is up to us how much we can take it! How much we can endeavor!

Owning varieties of beautiful landscapes and Himalayan panorama, trekking in Nepal has always been a topic of interest around the globe. The world’s highest peak- Mt. Everest and other towering picks have always allured millions of trekkers around. But trekking along these trials is not always easy. Every trial has its own demand. Some trials are easy; some are moderate while others are strenuous and more than strenuous. The physical endurance required to accomplish a trek differs from one to another.

Therefore, you need to make the right choice knowing your level of physical endurance. On the basis of the physical endurance required, we have categorized treks into the following six categories:




The elevation gain rises to 4000m and the hiking hour increases to 7 hours per day. You need to prepare yourself for a long walk in not so well leveled paths in a colder atmosphere.




The elevation gain rises over 5000m. Trekkers have to walk along unleveled trials uphill and downhill. Steep ascend and descend is also necessary. As you need to acclimatize yourself, the trekking hours are normally 7-8 hours over 13-19 days span.


Very strenuous


The trekkers must be able to have high physical endurance with knowledge of climbing and dealing with the difficult and challenging terrain. The hiking elevation rises to 6000m and over therefore climber should be able to withstand cold. These trekking are generally for experienced trekkers and climbers?
