Like most of the countries, Nepal also experiences by March/April season this is also the high season of the Nepal trekking and hiking activities. Temperatures begin to warm up and nature awakens from its winter rest with developing green grass and different type of flowers.

April march season of Nepal is a popular trekking season of Nepal. Because during this season day is a bit longer and the weather is clean and need. The temperature is day to day decrease at this season so this temperature is feet to our body easily so there is the low effect of the high altitude sickness which as the time rolls on the weather is more ideal. so, during this time to be busy but not like an Oct/Nov.
Many people said that the march is less season but not that much off season. Because at that time the day will bit a longer, the temperature will increase weather will be clear at the mountain and views are need and clean. At that time the mountain view is best then other time because that will fully be covered by snow and mountain are bright.
