Spring Season is such a beautiful time to see many different flowers, plants and rare animals especially Rhododendron flower along the way is the major attraction. Walking and trekking is also very suitable during this season.

Summer (June - August) and winter (December - February). This season provides a different scenic views each hours unpredictable weather ,heavy monsoon rainfall mostly in Annapurna region it is very much clear to trek around Mustang by summer time because of altitude you can skip the rain if you go those areas., so ,Everest, Langtang and Annapurna are always comfortable to trek even in winter season.
