as a tourist destination is good for all seasons, however, the best seasons
for trekking and expeditions are Spring and Autumn. The best season for
trekking and peak climbing is during Autumn months (Oct - Dec) which are
noted for clear weather and excellent views of silvery mountains against
blue sky. It gets colder towards the end of December and winter months
(January and February) are good for low altitude treks with sunny days
and magnificent mountain views.
early Spring, February and March are ideal months for trekking at moderate
altitude with hill sides covered with wild flowers and spectacular display
of rhododendron above 1800 meters. March - May are good months for high
altitude trekking and peak climbing with excellent mountain views and
moderate temperature at higher elevation over 5000 meters. Many of the
high mountains are in the rain shadow, so the monsoon season (June - September)
is good for trekking in Trans Himalayan areas like Mustang and Dolpo (upper),
Mount Kailash - Mansarovar and others.
season for Himalaya expeditions begins from the middle of March and ends
by the end of may in Spring season. For Autumn season, the expeditions
begins from end of August and lasts till the end of October. Some expeditions
are arranged during Winter season as well which normally begins from November
and lasts till the end of December.
