The Best Season to go on Upper Mustang Trek

The weather is one of the most important factors to look at when deciding to trek to The Upper Mustang Trek. It is best suitable to trek during the spring, summer and the autumn. During the winters and monsoon, it becomes difficult to trek due to strong winds, storms, and slippery trails.

 January – February: This time is the coldest, especially from early January to early February. The temperature can be extremely cold. Though the day time may be warm and admirable with clear skies, the night time would be extremely cold. It would not be suggested to trek during this time.

March – April: This is the best time of the season to trek in the Upper Mustang Trek. The weather is very favorable through the trek. Stunning views of the central Himalayan range will be seen. Temperatures may start increasing from the mid of March and with clear skies, snow mountains will be seen at their best. Many trekkers often succeed their expedition at this time. On the journey, the rhododendron flowers will be blooming at its best with a variety of colors.

May – June: This is also the perfect time for trekking right before the rainfall. Nepal starts its rainfall from the end of June till mid of August. The season of spring and summer makes the trek much more enjoyable.

July – August: The rainfall hits at its peak during this time. It is a good option to go trekking during the monsoon months as the region is in the rain shadow.

September – October: This is also one of the perfect seasons for the Upper Mustang trek. This season is the peak of tourists due to the favorable weather. As the monsoon slowly ends, a perfect trekking climate sets itself. The temperature goes up to 20 degrees in the daytime and falls down to 5 degrees during the night time. This season is when trekkers enjoy trekking the most, with a clear sky, and an amazing view of the mountains. It is highly recommended as it’s the best time for the Upper Mustang trek, usually between mid-Septembers to end. Tourists in this season are also attracted by the main festival of Nepal; Dashain and Tihar.

November – December: As winter slowly begins, snow falls begins and it eventually tough to trek. Nights will start to get colder. Keep in mind that seasonal migration takes place during this time and many residents from Lo Manthang and surrounding areas will move down to lower altitudes for the winter months. November is the busy season as it is the clearest month with sparkling days. The day time temperatures are very stable and constant and due to this, the view of the clear blue sky and the mountain is phenomenal. From December, the temperature starts to get cold and begins to snow.
