Best Time For Luxury Trekking

Most of the luxury trekking destinations, particularly those mentioned above do not take you to high altitude treks. Luxury trekking in Nepal is ideal in the Autumn and Spring seasons. In Nepal, the Autumn season begins in September and lasts till November, while the spring season ranges from March to May. During these months the sky is very clear, gracing trekkers with vivid views of the high mountains. The flora and fauna bloom during this time so the trails look greener and filled with flowers. The overall ambiance of some of the most popular trekking regions like Everest and Annapurna is beautiful. Hence, the Autumn and Spring seasons are the best time for Luxury Trekking in Nepal.

During the months of December, January and February, the winter season is characterized by snowfall in an elevation above 3,000m/9,842ft. Hence, you might have discomfort in walking through the slippery snow in higher altitudes. However, trekking in the foothills of Annapurna and Everest trails can be done in this season. Monsoon season that falls in June, July and August, is the least favorite season for trekking as you will experience rainfall and dramatic change in weather in higher altitudes. However, short and low altitude luxury treks are doable during this season as well.

Conclusion

Looking at the highlights of the luxury trekking trails; might certainly make you want to hop on the next flight to Nepal. It is essential to note that Nepal not just offers adventure tourism and high-altitude technical treks, but caters to the need of people who prefer to immerse in these adventures, luxuriously. 

Apart from the above packages we also offer tailor-made Luxury Trekking Holiday Packages in Nepal. If you wish to receive professional guidance or need assistance in planning your next luxury trekking holiday in Nepal, feel free to contact us.
