TREKKING SEASON & GRADES SECTION The chart shown below shows the grading of the treks in the different areas in Nepal as well as the best seasons to conduct them. For many of our treks, you can choose between camping or staying in Mountain lodges. which are locally-run guest houses, but standards vary enormously. In the popular areas, such as Annapurna, lodges are more like hotels, with hot water, Western food, and private rooms, in more remote areas, they are far simpler and more authentically Nepalese. Mountain Lodge trekking is less expensive than camping, and is suitable for smaller groups. With larger groups, irrespective of the area, it is more practical to camp. We provide all the necessary camping equipment dining and toilet tents plus our guides, porters and cooks, you trek in comfort with Western food of a high standard. More information about the different trekking can be found at our trekking section. Trekking in Nepal can be undertaken throughout the year. There are four seasons in Nepal. Each season has its distinct attractions to offer. The seasons are classified as follows: Autumn (Sept-Nov) This season offers excellent weather and tantalizing mountain views. Winter (Dec-Feb) This season is noted for occasional snowfall only at higher elevations. Hence it is ideal for trekking at lower elevations, generally below 3000 meters. Spring (March-May) Different varieties of wild flowers, specially the rhododendrons make the hillside above 5000 meters a haunting paradise during this season. It is mildly warm at lower elevations and at higher elevation over 4000 meters the mountain views are excellent and temperature is quite moderate. Summer (Jun-Aug) Summer months really continue up to mid-September making travel wet and warm. These times are blessed for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and meadows blossom with flowers and lush vegetation.
