Best season for trekking in Langtang Region?

Winter

December to February are the coldest months to trek, with the shortest days and the fewest people. There is often a lot of snow on the ground, especially above  Ghoda Tabela, Thulo Syabru, Tatopani, Gosainkunda, and getting to Destination can sometimes be very difficult or impossible.

Spring

March, April, and May are some of the busier months and for good reason. The days are getting warmer, the weather is mostly stable and the  Trekking and climbing season is in full swing. It really is an amazing sight from  Langtang Valley, Kyangin-Ri, Tserko-Ri, Thulo Syabru, Nagthali, Gosainkunda, Helambu, and Chisapani. In the lower valleys, the flowers are blooming on the Rhododendrons and the terraced fields turn green with new shoots of vegetables.

Summer

From June to August the summer monsoons bring rain and snow. There are fewer visitors during these months, although some of the most beautiful, warm, blue-sky days occur now. Usually, by the afternoon, there is a rainstorm or snow higher up.

Autumn

This is the most popular time to visit the Langtang Area. September through November is a time of steady weather patterns, less precipitation, and cleaner air. The lodges are full and everyone is friendly. If you enjoy meeting new friends, want the best chance for great weather and don’t mind an empty, this is the best trekking season.
