Trekking in Nepal in winter is an exceptional experience since the atmosphere is clear with low humidity and presents awesome visibility. Especially, the snow-capped panorama is simply breathtaking. Though the months are definitely colder, you can experience a great trek as the trekking trails will be crowd-free. And, there are a lot of places you can walk on if you prefer to trek over or below 3500m in Nepal.

Choices may vary for trekking. But particularly, Everest Base Camp Trek, Everest Panorama Trek, Ghorepani Trek, and Annapurna Base Camp Trek are the most picked trekking alternatives in Nepal during the winter months.

Panoramic view of Mt. Everest during Everest Base Camp Trek, no doubt is an all-time popular for trekking enthusiasts all around the world. In winter too, Everest Base Camp Trek will be the best choice. Though the weather will be cold during winter once you walk above Tengboche you will get to witness clear and excellent views of stunning landscapes including thickly covered snowy peaks and take some of the best photos that you can hardly take if you trek in another season.

Likewise, Everest Panorama Trek is another ideal choice to trek during winter especially meant for those with not as much time yet who want to witness a view of the highest peak on the earth-Everest. You will be also introduced to Sherpa culture and explore Tengboche famous for its beautiful monastery. Mt. Annapurna south and Himchuli

Ghorepani Trek, in addition, will be a perfect alternative for trekking in Nepal during the winter. You may get to pass through the snowy trail which will be rather adventurous but the rewarding factor will be unforgettable. You will be enchanted by the captivating views of Annapurna South (7,219m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Himchuli (6,434), Machhapuchchhre(6997m) from Poon Hill (3210m).

We can suggest Annapurna Base Camp Trek if you are planning to trek in winter. Though the temperatures fall down, walking alongside lush rhododendron woods, and terraced rice fields and capturing high altitude scenery with the gigantic Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Machapuchhre (6993 m), Himchuli (6434 m), etc. will haunt you forever.

Of course, clothing during this season might bewilder you. Just carry a warm windproof outer layer and moisture-wicking clothes for your inner layers as well as a few good fleeces which would be enough. Avoid carrying heavy jackets and sweaters.

Apart from clear visibility, if you choose a date of Christmas and New Year for trekking in December that will add cherries on the top. Christmas and New Year are important occasions to celebrate around the world, especially for Christians. Nepal too celebrates it enthusiastically. Here is a chance for you to enjoy your New Year and Christmas vacation differently this time.
