Weather in the Himalayas is also tends to be varied at times, and the best trekking seasons are usually determined by the beginning of the summer monsoon. In order to avoid the wettest conditions, many hikers travel at the spring, which occurs from February to March.
This is the time of year when wildflowers are at the bloom and temperatures are at their most comfortable. Other trekkers could prefer to tackle the Everest Three Passes Trek during the autumn season, which is between September and November.
This is perhaps the best time for the year for crisp days and clear mountain views. Winter treks at the Everest region are also possible, but snowfall accumulation at the mountain passes of Kongma La, Cho La, and Renjo La could render the going treacherous.
We also typically recommend against hiking at the Everest Three Passes Trek during summer. If your schedule only allows you to visit Nepal during the summer or winter, Alpine Ramble Treks will be happy to arrange the customized itinerary to plan at the most rewarding adventure possible.
