When to trek?

A trek can last from two days to more than a month. So the first consideration will be to choos a trek that fits into your timetable. You have also to strike a balance between the period of the best weather and the crowds attracted by this.

The trekking season lasts from October to May, with October and November having the best weather. During this autumn high season the nights are cold in the mountains, but bright sun makes for pleasant daytime temperatures.

In winter (December to February) it is cold and in the mountains is snow and high passes like Thorong La, Ganja La or Cho La often are closed.

Most of the precipitation in the Himalaya occurs during summer. From late June to August mountains are covered by clouds and trails turn to mud. Only in regions behind the Himalayan range - like Mustang for example - it's possible to trek.
