Summer (June - August) and Winter (December - February).

Everest,  Langtang and Annapurna are always comfortable to trek even in winter season.

We always have both listed properly in our itinerary. However certain training like Running, Skipping and other workout will definitely help you in roots. 

  • Acclimatization:

Altitude sickness is a significant risk when trekking on any trails above about 2,500m.
