The trek can be organized and is enjoyable throughout the year.

The best seasons are spring (Mar to May) and autumn (Oct to Nov) but they also attract a large number of trekkers from many countries. If you want to avoid busy season then you might want to trek in other months.

It is monsoon during July/August with late rain often affecting September too. Flights to Pokhara are normally not affected. Insect repellent is a must for trek during monsoon (leeches are nuisance). This is one trek that can be enjoyed thorughout the year.

 

We run a number of treks every year that you can join. Do not worry even if you do not find these dates suitable to you. We let small groups and even single trekkers to pick their own dates.
