 Best time for trekking in the Everest region
Since Nepal is an ideal trekking destination, trekking in Nepal can be done anytime but an ideal time for trekking in the Everest region would be during the Spring and Autumn season.

During the spring season (March to May)  the weather begins to warm up and beautiful rhododendron flower blooms in the mountains. The lush green hills make the trails more vibrant and colorful.

Since the weather is all cleared by the monsoon rain, the Autumn season is by far the best time to view the beautiful mountains. The scenery is beautiful and green that flourishes magically as autumn arrives. However, trails tend to get busier leading to unavailability of flights and accommodations.
