Spring is obviously one of the best time to visit in Nepal for trekking, hiking, and climbing in white snow caped mountains. Mostly Annapurna Ghorepani trek trail will be covered by Rhododendron flowers and also in other regions. Around Kathmandu valley, Kalinchowk, Helambu and western part of Nepal is quite famous places to hike for Rhododendron forest.

Summer and Rainy (mid may to September)

Summer is generally maximum hot in Terai region but humid in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and mid hilly parts of Nepal. Due to the bad weather it seems not easy to fly to Jomsom for Upper Mustang trek and Lukla for Everest trekking. Upper mustang is complete desert valley and known as the little tibet of Nepal. Nar Phu valley trekking, Dolpo, and mustang are the best places to visit during this time. Less rain or we will not find rain and also non touristic places to trek. Rainy season is nepal is one the best time to travel because we can see wild flowers blooming, greenery hill / mountains, rice farming, waterfall and more.. If you love photography then this could be the best time to capture amazing shots. Imagine the view right after the rain, its just wow!!
