Are you looking for trekking this year in Nepal Himalayas? If you are still searching for the best time to visit Nepal, let me tell you that this autumn season, from late September to October, and November is the time to walk in.

If you are in a hurry, then this paragraph sums up this blog. Autumn is the time when the monsoon rain stops drizzling; the surrounding starts to be greener than ever, the views of the landscape, sunrise, sunset, and Himalayas become clearer than any other time of the year and great chance to observe Himalayan faunas at lower elevations as they will be grazing at lowlands during this time of the year.

What are the top 7 things you need to know if you plan trekking in Nepal this autumn? Let’s see:

1. Views are clearer; trails are perfect for any explorer:

As the monsoon clouds say goodbye, there will be more chances of a clear sunny day with sparkling snow-white Himalayas in the background.  During these sunny days, the trails also get perfect for hiking, no slippery walks, no too much ice at high altitudes, and are perfect for most travelers.

2. Grass is greener and a chance of spotting faunas further:

Mainly during September and early October, you will witness more greenery on the trails. Along with the green side of the story, the animals at higher altitudes like musk deer, mountain goat, mountain sheep descend at lower altitudes, and you will encounter them from proximity.

3. Excellent bird watching opportunity:

The migratory birds fly to forests in Nepal. If you plan to visit during the autumn season, visit Chitwan National park, Sagarmatha national park in the Everest region, Shivapuri National park near Kathmandu, Annapurna Conservation area in Annapurna region, and Langtang National park in Langtang region. Regardless of wherever you visit, you will see different species of birds. Best time also for keen bird watchers.

4. Fewer chances of flight delays and cancellation:

The weather at high altitudes can change instantly, but this instant out of prediction happens very little during October, November. Therefore, your domestic flight to Lukla, Pokhara, Jomsom, Nepalgunj, or other places has fewer chances of getting delayed/cancellation. So, more fun and be hassle-free.

5. Not so hot, not so cold

Autumn months are after the end of hot summer, monsoon, and cold winter when the days are warm and nights are cooler. The temperature range from 20 to 25-degree centigrade; Perfect temp for walking during the daytime and not freezing during the night.

6. Expect more travelers than during another season:

Everyone is looking for the best time, just like you. So, get ready to join during the busy season, make friends with like-minded people, have fun, and make the most out of your Nepal holidays.

7. Season is temporary; the scenery is permanent:

Either it's autumn or spring, dry or green, the beauty of this Himalayan country is always evergreen. So, my point over here is that don’t wait for the best time; take your time and make it the best one.
