Summer Trekson Monday, August 30, 2010
The primary trekking season in Nepal and the Himalayas is in the fall and spring when the weather is favorable. In most areas of Nepal the summer monsoon rainy weather makes trekking conditions unfavorable. However, in some regions bordering Tibet and in Tibet itself the arid climate makes summer trekking a great alternative. The Mustang region lies in the rain shadow of the Himalayas, protected from most of the monsoon rains. Likewise, Tibet’s high arid plateaus are ideal for summer trekking. The Annapurna region in north-central Nepal also receives significantly less rain than other parts of the country during the summer months and low-altitude, short treks in this region are recommended.
Summer trekking is also a great time of year to visit Nepal when you will find trails and villages have few trekkers and you can enjoy the solitude and beauty of the mountains without any crowds.
