Spring Trekking in Nepal and Bhutan

The best time of year for trekking

For those after warmer daytime temperatures, blossoming flora and generally stable weather, spring is the ideal season for trekking in Nepal and Bhutan.

Spring is considered to be one of the best seasons to hike in the Nepal and Bhutan Himalaya. The flowers begin to bloom, the weather is warmed and there are less fellow trekkers compared to the autumn months, Everest Base Camp will be full of life due to the climbing season and the trails over high mountain passes such as the Cho La, Larkya La and Thorong La in Nepal and Shinge La in Bhutan are clear. 

Temperatures of 16-23 degrees C during the day in the upper hills and lower mountain ranges and warmer nights ensure that your Himalayan trekking adventure is a much more comfortable one.

Here are our recommended Bhutan and Nepal treks in Spring:
