The Monsoon trekking falls in Monsoon season that will cover June to August. Monsoon season in Nepal is rainy season, but if you have a a week's holiday in the mountain Monsoon time is also the best time for hiking. Despite monsoon, trekking is still a good time to visit Nepal.
There are areas in the North of Nepal that have little or no rainfall at this time (Upper Mustang and Dolpo). These are restricted areas, for conservation reasons and so the permits are a little more expensive, but the amazing scenery and culture of these areas makes them worthy of being called some of the most beautiful areas in Nepal.
Upper Mustang was until relatively recently a separate kingdom and its deserts like landscape and strong Tibetan Buddhist culture provide a landscape completely different to that you find in other areas in Nepal. This is the land of monasteries, Chortens, nomadic goat herders and butter tea.
For people on a budget, the Annapurna and Langtang regions also offer some fantastic long and short treks. Please see Annapurna Circuit, Ghorepani - Poonhill treks and Langtang treks.
The Annapurna region has many types of an ethic group (Mager, Poon, Gurung, Brahmin and Chhetri) and few of them, they speak their own language, and they have different festivals to other groups. Here you can see a wide variety of landscapes, and cross the world's second highest pass 'Thorong La'. In August there is the Janaipurnima festival where pilgrims trek to the village of Muktinath in the Annapurna region and Gosaikunda lake in the Langtang region. There are many festivities at this time and in Muktinath the local horsemen race in the streets.
Muktinath is one of the most sacred areas in the world for both Buddhists and Hindus. Here they worship together with the natural gas fires and temples with 108 taps that, is you shower each one is said to wash away your sin.
A short trek closer to Pokhara is to Ghorepani Pun hill. The Monsoon Trekking is one of the best trekking routes in good weather as within a few days walking you get see many mountains and localizations. From Ghorepani, you can leave in the early hours of the morning to trek to Poon hill. This is the name of the viewpoint at 3,210 meters to observe the sunrise over Dhaulagiri (the 7th highest mountain in the world) and Annapurna South (also over 8,000 m). After Ghorepani, you can see many waterfalls, Mountain villages, Local farming, Rhododendron forest as well as enjoying the tranquil environment.
However, Monsoon trekking in Nepal is completely possible for short days around Annapurna and Langtang region is a wonderful destination for student groups( student tours) because there are so many things to see and it's not that expensive to visit and besides that, there is a great opportunity for them to learn about the area's culture, religions, traditions, and way of life.
