Generally the two best known trekking season of Nepal are after falls and after winter. The month mid of the September to mid of December is considered as the best trekking season in Himalayas. During this time period, the condition of the weather is neither hot nor cold so the mountains are visible crystal clear. Another best season for trekking on Nepal is after winter. Due to the sun the climate gets warmer in spring time and trekkers can enjoy the comfortable climate condition. 
 
Autumn (September-November)
This season is considered as the best trekking season for the trekking in Nepal. Fall season is held on the month of September, October and November. During this time period of season, it offers excellent weather and breath-taking mountain views and making it a good time for trekking. The sky is generally clear which helps to offer outstanding views. 
 
Winter (December-February)
The days are clear in winter season in Nepal. December, January and February months are cold days in mountain. During this season in Nepal it usually snow fall in the higher altitude with colder temperatures. Hence, if you are looking for suitable time period and incredible scenery, this would be a great time to Trek in lower elevations. 
 
Spring (March-May)
Spring season in Nepal is one of the most beautiful time period for trekking and mountain climbing. This season offers varieties of flora blossoming of giant rhododendrons above 3000m. During this time higher altitude trekking are more comfortable and provides excellent mountains view.

Accommodations

In Kathmandu, we will have a 3-star hotel room which will be shared in a twin-share basis and will have a supplement of breakfast alongside. The rooms will have attached bathrooms and will have all the facilities that will at least help you have a semi-urban experience judging from where you come. But, during the trek, we will have to forfeit the luxury of a 3-star hotel in the pursuit of what nature has in store for us and travel through the wildlands in local teahouses, which will be very comforting as well but just not luxurious enough in terms of the facilities provided.

Meals

We can have a myriad a local and international cuisines to choose from during the trek though the list of meals will not be as elaborate as you might think, but still we do have options and they surely do taste awesome. We are very careful for providing you with food that is both hygienic and heavy for sustaining your energy throughout the trek. All kinds of meal fall under the package costs during the trek except for when you stay in Kathmandu where we will only be able to offer the breakfast. And, we will also end our lovely soulful trekking experience with a lovely farewell dinner at the end of our trek in Kathmandu.

 

Physical Condition Requirements

Though it might seem very daunting in the face of it, but we are pretty sure an average human being with average walking capability will be able to complete the trek with no trouble. Our guides are very supportive in terms of your walking abilities during the trek and if needed, s/he will change the entire trek stuructre for you as well. (But, that will come alongside its own repercussions, like longer trekking days). Walking in higher altitude will surely be more tiresome than in lower altitude but the transition between the two will be as smooth as possible. We do recommend to consult with your personal doctor before making the trip though just to make sure.   consult your doctor(s) before the trip.

Trip Start Dates and Cost

We have a perfectly customisable trip flexibilty depending upon your preferred dates and times. We are extremely you-specific in providing our services because we think that is what ultimately matters at the end of the day, how much you enjoy the trip.

This religious site is believed to have existed from the beginning of the millennium when the Shiva Lingam was discovered here. Pashupatinath is situated on the banks of the holy Bagmati river. It is believed that taking a bath in the Bagmati river will help people cleanse soul so thousand and devotees can be seen taking a bath on the bank of this holy river.

Boudhha Stupa Tour

Boudhanath was built in the 14th century and after the arrival of Tibetans following in the year 1959, this stupa has been the center place of the Tibetan Buddhism. Today it is a place for medication, pilgrimage, and a popular tourist site. From the top, Bouddhanath stupa looks like a giant mandala.

In all the Tibetan mandalas, four of the Dhyani Buddhas mark the cardinal points, with the fifth, Vairocana, enshrined in the center (in the white hemisphere of the stupa).The five Buddha represents the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, and ether) which are represented in the stupa's architecture.

Bhaktapur Tours 

Bhaktapur, a city where the past breathes into the present. This glorious city used to be the ruling throne of the Kathmandu valley until the ruling king, Yakshya Malla, divided the valley among his three sons. This division in the kingdom broke the unity among the bothers which lead to fall of the kingdom in the hands of the Shah dynasty ruler from Gorkha. Before the kingdom was lost to the Shah dynasty kings, the kingdom was especially renowned for its Malla Yuddha which was a fierce combat between the two wrestlers. Hence one can observe the idols of the muscular wrestles as the trademark of the city. These carved wrestles are found in the various temples as the guardian of the and the Gods.
