Best trekking season for family holiday in Nepal
Nepal is a small country with so many diverse culture, temperature and ethnicity furthermore there are many high snow cap peaks are in Nepal for Trekking, hiking and climbing.
While you are trekking in Nepal with your family, you should be aware about the trekking region you are heading, however, family holiday in Nepal is popular trekking and hiking trips in Annapurna as it is best Trekking seasons in Nepal (Oct – Nov & March to May). If you are hiking with your family within those months you will have stunning Mountain View, because every day the sky get clear, the valley view will be just full of green scenery and enough water in the river so Oct and Nov both months are highly recommended but Other March to May spring season is also quite nice to explore the trekking region with full of blooming flowers along the trek and clear weather.
The temperature during Oct & Nov will be mild while you are walking on the route but in the lodge it will be about 5 degree at night and early morning but noted that during the walking time you can wear normal cloths such as half paint & t-shirt Similarly during spring season (March–May), the temperature will be quite hot(about 32 Degree) while you are walking but it is much east for you if you walk early morning to skip the hot and when you arrive to your Tea House, the temperature drops very quickly about 10 Degree, so family tour in Nepal can be done around many trekking regions in Nepal but Annapurna Region is recommended.
