There are two best seasons round the year for trekking.

One is between January to March, and the other being between June and October. January to March is the colder as compared to June to October. There is a greater possibility of confronting snow on the top during January to March. The added benefit is that there will not be many trekkers around this time of the year. The June to October season is busy as it coincides with the holidays in Europe and North America. This is the busiest time of the year.

  • The trek is similar to just walking from equator to the North Pole when the climatic conditions are concerned. It includes trekking from the cultivated low belt to the ice capped mountains. It is a sight to watch as the vegetation changes from lush green to the harsh desert on the top with snow. The journey to reach the summit, the final destination, is the most spectacular road traversed by any.


    The entire trek is adventurous as you traverse through those rough patches and uneven and steep trails up the mountain. The altitude too will create a problem with breathing. It is wonderful to see the trekkers continue their journey through the rough unravelled path to reach the mountain top.
