The air is washed with the monsoon rains, the mountain scenery is superb and the weather remains comfortably warm. December, January, and February are still excellent months for hiking however the cold can be sour at high altitudes. March and May also provide much better weather when trekkers can see superb wildflowers, especially in Nepal’s wonderful rhododendron forests. During the monsoon season (June-August) hiking is potential from the rain-shadow regions of the north of the Himalaya, for example, top Mustang and upper Dolpo. These areas are out of range of the rain clouds as a result of high hills and therefore are unaffected by the monsoon.

Popular short treks are available around the Kathmandu and Pokhara valleys, which only take one or a couple of days to complete while more transfers lasting from a week to a month. It is possible to unite a string of popular treks collectively and summit climbing for months on end.
