Here we will provide you pinpoint of this trek in different climatic season, then you can decide for yourself which season is the perfect season for you. Weather is a crucial attribute to check up upon earlier to travel.

Best season to trek:

The clear sky, pleasant weather, safe trekking routes are some of the factors that make Spring season and Autumn season the perfect time to go for a trek in Langtang valley. The weather conditions are pretty predictable and stable however, there might be slight fluctuations due to global warming. The steep trails are dry and risk-free. The picturesque views of Himalayas alongside the pleasant scent of flourishing rhododendron flowers make spring slightly even perfect time. The only problem might be as it’s a peak season all the lodges, teahouses or homestay might be busy making it difficult to find accommodations.  The autumn is perfect vivid views too. However, if you want to walk along blooming rhododendron forest, go for spring. Gist- Autumn and Spring are the best seasons. If sights of blooming rhododendron are equally important to you as panoramas of Himalayas, opt for Spring.

Other seasons and their highlights:

The steep trails of Langtang Valley Trek won’t be safe during the time of rainfalls. So don’t pick the summer/monsoon season for this or any other trek as much as possible. It will be too risky to walk in the trekking route during this season, plus the air is humid to further add to the difficulty. The winter season will have snow in high altitudes. You will have to carry heavy winter clothes if you decide to trek during winter. On the positive light though, the views of the Himalayas are pretty vivid during this time of the year.
