In the daytime temperatures will vary from 15ºC to 35ºC in the capital city of Nepal- Kathmandu valley to around 10ºC at 3,600m and progressively lower the higher we go. Different seasons offer different advantages for trekking, climbing, and hiking.

Post Monsoon/autumn: Mid-September to November. These months are the main trekking season in Nepal. Day temperatures in Kathmandu are approximately above 20ºC. Skies are usually clear and days on the trek are sunny and have mild clear mountain views. The night will be colder with temperatures dropping as low as minus 10ºC at the highest altitudes area.

Winter: Last week of December to the end of February.  Despite the cooler conditions, this is an ideal time to trek in Nepal. Skies are usually very clear, especially in December and the mountain views are at their best. Nights will be very cold with temperatures down to minus 15ºC to minus20ºC at the highest altitudes but days are pleasant and sunny. The trekking trails are also much less busy at this time of year.
