From December to February are a good month for trekking in the Himalayan region. But cold can be better and dangerous for high-altitude sickness.

In March and April, weather has been drying for a long time and dusty is starting hanging in the air which affects visibility. The poor quality of Himalayan views is compensated by superb wildflower.

From Jun to September trail can be more slippery due to monsoon rain and raging, river and streams often wash away bridge and stretches of trail.
