Nepal Climate and Weather

Nepal has four different seasons. Spring from March to May, is warm with rain showers, flowering different flower in forest and good season for trekking, hiking, village tour and tour. Summer, from June to August, is the monsoon season when the hills turn lush and green. People do short trek and tour also this time. Autumn, from September to November, is cool with clear sky and is the most popular season for trekking, hiking, village tour and tour. In winter, from December to February, it is cold at night with fog in the early morning. People do trek and tour also this time.

Trekkers can do summer trekking and winter trekking in Nepal, it is long days trekking and also short days trekking depends up on trekking region area. Because Nepal is quite far south in Latitude (same as Miami), the weather is warmer and winter is much milder at lower elevations. The monsoon is determined by the Bay of Bengal. It is hot during the monsoon with rain almost everyday. During this season, trekkers can do short trekking in Nepal (known as summer trek).It is difficult and uncomfortable, the trails being muddy and infested with leeches in hill region. It usually does not rain for more that one or two days during the entire autumn and the winter season. In the winter, the mountains are covered with snow including some high hills. Mt. Everest itself is a huge black rock during the trekking season, which becomes snow-covered only during the winter. People can do short trekking (known as winter trek).
