When to go trekking in Nepal, Darjeeling, Sikkim, Ladakh of India, Bhutan, and Tibet.
As the largest continent on earth, Asia offers all climates and landforms, and we travel year-round to see its splendors! All of our trips are planned for the time of year best suited to the activities involved and when the most favorable weather conditions can be expected. The chart below summarizes where and when our holidays take place during the year. Please refer to the individual trip pages for specific departure dates.
High seasons for trekking in the Himalaya are pre and post-monsoon, i.e., from January through to June and again from the end of September to the end of December. Spring and autumn are also the prime times for most of China.
The Tibetan Plateau of Tibet and Ladakh, India are superb during their exhilarating summer months from the beginning of June until mid-September.
The winter months from late October through March mark the best time to visit Nepal, Bhutan and all areas of India south of the Himalaya. How about spending Christmas at Annapurna or Everest region?
