Climate Overview: 

Temperatures in the Langtang region vary greatly due to the extreme difference in altitude in the region. Most of the annual precipitation occurs from June to September. In fall (October – November) and spring (April – May), days are warm and sunny, and nights cool. In spring, rain at 3000m elevation often turns to snow at higher elevations. In winter from December to March, days are clear and mild but night’s cold.

Activity Level 4: These expeditions require above average physical fitness. You may reach altitudes and experience high levels of physical exertion. No technical skills are required and first-time trekkers are welcome. Typical days require 5-10 hours of trekking and some expeditions include large elevation changes.
