Spring season in Nepal falls in mid March to mid May. Spring season is the second best season for trekking after autumn season as the forest start to spread its greenery along the trekking path making spring season best time to visit for nature lover trekkers. During spring, hills are covered with vibrant red colour rhododendron (national flower of Nepal) at elevations of around 1400m as the trekkers move to higher altitude the colour of flowers begins shifting to pink and gradually becoming pure white at elevations of 3600 giving trekkers a epic experience.
Along with rhododendron, various species of wild orchids and magnolia blooms covers the forest, which is the most significant part of spring season trekking in Nepal. Another best part of spring besides walking through the red flowery hills is the greater chance of trekkers to come across various wildlife such as endangered snow leopard, red panda and beautiful birds.
Good weather condition and temperature is very important to make trekking journey exciting and comfortable. In spring season, the weather in Nepal is at its best compare to other seasons. The sky is clear and the sun is bright. The temperature is just right. It is mildly warm at lower elevations and moderate at higher elevation over 4000m. However, morning and night can be little cold compare to day but not too cold as winter. No need to carry extra warm clothing for trekkers. The days are longer which is also a great advantage for trekkers to have extra time to explore the wilderness in the limited time frame of their trek.
