                        Our trek season runs from mid-September to May. From the beginning of September, the rain of the monsoon decreased. From mid-October to December, the climate is generally stable, with warm and pleasant days and cold, clear nights. The temperature can reach 25 ° C during the day at low altitude and at night the mercury will drop to 0. Above 3000 meters, the temperature can fall to -10 ° C at night.

                        Climatic conditions are never predictable, but there is a well-established pattern. Temperatures of day and night at low altitude vary according to the season, but the night at high altitude is cold, no matter the season. Modern equipment and appropriate clothing will keep you warm.
