Nepal is undoubtedly one of the top trekking destinations in the world and is truly a wonderland for all different types of trekkers. When the Himalayan region is blanketed in snow, you might expect trekking here in Nepal. Trekking in Nepal during the winter is possible and enjoyable to witness its natural beauty covered with snow. The winter months in Nepal are December, January, and February. Winter is the least popular season for trekking. But it is becoming more and more popular among intelligent and daring travelers. The sight of the snowy mountains attracts the trekkers to Nepal. You may enjoy winter treks at Nepal’s lower elevations, below 4000 meters, with the proper winter equipment and gear.
Fewer tourists visit Nepal in the winter because they believe it would be cold with a lot of snow. Which is not always the case depending on where you want to visit. During the winter season in Nepal, it is completely impossible to trek in the higher altitudes. So the short winter treks in the lower altitudes take you closer to the mountains in a shorter time delivering breathtaking scenes and the nature of reality. Since there are fewer trekkers on the trails in winter, you may fully appreciate nature in a tranquil setting. Enjoy your solitude away from the crowds. Be certain of a bed and get a better price in the teahouses.
Short winter treks in Nepal are ideal for tourists who are senior citizens, and trekkers who are prone to altitude and willing to witness the mountain peaks and authentic lifestyle of locals within a limited time. Langtang Valley Trek, Tamang Heritage Trek, Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, Pikey Peak Trek, Helambu Valley Trek, Aama Yangri Peak Trek, Mardi Himal Trek, Mohare Danda Trek, Kokhe Danda, Pakey View Point Trek, and many more are some of the famous short treks during winter in Nepal. These treks are mostly favorable in the peak trekking seasons; spring and autumn and itineraries’ days are a little longer. But the itineraries are adjustable and make it shorter as well according to your preferences and the time available.
