Nepal contains a diverse landscape with different geographical conditions. Nepal boasts all tropical as well as alpine weather conditions. So, if you are thinking of visiting Nepal, you can schedule it throughout the year. There are generally four seasons a year and fit destinations as their attraction.

Winter Season (December to February)

During the winter season, there will be moderate to heavy snowfall at high altitudes occasionally. So, it is best not to trek at such a high altitude as Everest Base camp during the winter. There may be the risk of a slippery road due to the snow and the danger of cold weather. But some adventure seekers dare to trek Everest Base Camp during winter too. It is best to trek to lower altitudes like the Terai Region as the days are better in this season.

Spring Season (March to May)

At higher elevations, the mountain views are excellent, and the temperature is moderate even at night.

Summer Season (June to August)

This season is best to avoid any trekking as the heavy rain makes the trial more dangerous. Trekking will be unfordable with muddy trials and full of leech during the trek. And Nepal has a high risk of landslides, mainly in a hilly region. But if you are vegetation and wild species of flora lover, you are most welcome to Nepal.

This season is blessed for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and grasslands blossom with wildflowers and lush vegetation. Everest base camp trek is not suitable; however, places like MustangManang, and Dolpo are located in a rain shadow.
