Best trek in Nepal during Winter Season?

Posted by in Treks in Nepal 2014-01-06 08:53:46

Hi Trekkers in Nepal

My name is Jason and I am coming to Nepal for trekking this January (winter). I am looking for a 14 day teahouse trek, rather hard. Should not be too expensive.

I am, however, in doubt which treks are good during the winter season in Nepal? Would really appreciate some pieces of advice on this.

Looking forward to be hearing from you.

    Hey Jason!

    I would suggest you to go around the Kathmandu - Pokhara - Ghandruk - Chomromg - Tadapani - Ghorepani(Poonhill) - Tatopani - Beni - Pokhara - kathmandu. won't be longer then 10/12 days. so in the other days you could be visiting the spots at kathmandu.

    thanks in advance

    While trekking in winter you should consider three regions: Everest, Annapurna and Langtang. Lodges on these areas stay open during winter as well because of its popularity. Teahouses on other regions are most likely to be closed. On these three areas probably they open on turn basis and at least one stays there so that they can serve those few coming on that time of the year, others move down. So depend on your requirement/fitness level there are various trekking options on these areas. If you choose trekking above 5000 meters and involve crossing some passes then you might have to be flexible as it might get closed if there will be heavy snow. And be prepared with lots of warm clothes.

    Hi Ashok and Mosaic Adventure

    Really appreciate your pieces of advice in this regard. I will check out more about the Annapurna, Everest Base Camp, and Langtang region. It makes sense to do tea house trekking this time of year, and naturally, I have to mak e sure that tea houses are open, especially the higher I get during the trek. Thanks.

    Mosaic Adventure, I might contact you when reaching Nepal. Thanks for the pieces of advice, again.

    I am looking very much forward to be trekking in Nepal - it's a dream come true:)


    Ps. I am counting on reaching higher than 5,000 m - that's where the fun begins:)
