As Nepal Himalayas Trekking is a seasonal adventure activities, we’ve two best seasons for this Langtang Trekking and they are as follows:
Spring Season(March, April, May): The season in which the national flower, rhododendron blooms all around the hills of Langtang region. One can witness the colorful hills with spectacular vistas throughout the journey.
Autumn Season(September, October, November): The season which is blessed with the crystal clear sky because of the dry air. Hence, one gets the transparent view of amazing snowcapped mountains with beautiful landscapes throughout the journey. This is the season in which one gets the maximum of Langtang Gosaikunda Trek.
Due to the freezing climate in winter(December, January, February), the trekking is not recommended. And similarly, due to wet and slippery trail, the trek is not possible during rainy season(June, July, August) as well.
