The month of February is nearly the end of peak winter in Nepal. The normal winter months in Nepal are November, December, January, and February. Winter starts in mid-November and ends in mid-February. It is also the dry season with very little rain. In some parts because of winter rain, the snowing may happen. Overall February is definitely the best month to do Trekking in Nepal after the best season.
The peak trekking season in Nepal is the time between Autumn (Sept – Nov) and Spring (March-May). However, every season is okay for a walking trip in Nepal.
There are numerous trekking routes in Nepal which are very suitable to do in winter. If you don’t want to walk on the snowy trail then low altitude trekking routes are also very popular. Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, Mardi Himal Trek, Chisapani Nagarkot Trek, Everest View Trek, Gokyo Valley Trek, Gosainkunda Trek, Langtang Valley Trek etc. are a few best trekking routes to do in winter. However, these places might get covered by snow sometimes even in February.
If you are daring enough then you can do some high-altitude passes too. Lots of trekking agencies will offer trekking gear like crampons to wear on shoes. This allows trekkers to freely walk on the snowy trail. Therefore, it doesn’t matter which months you do vacations to Nepal. The only thing that matters is the selection of the right trekking agency for the trip.
This is not the peak trekking season in Nepal. Therefore, the number of trekkers on the trekking trail is very less. It makes the trail tranquil and less crowded. There will not be enough chance to interact with the trekkers but having a quiet encounter with nature is always memorable.
Weather Challenges of Nepal in February
The chance of getting the best accommodation is also very high during this time of the year. As the number of trekkers living in the teahouses is less the services and standard rooms are easy to get. Therefore, February Trekking in Nepal is suitable for those who want better rooms to spend the night after walking is an ideal time.
Rates of the hotels and restaurants in city areas are also less. Unfortunately during the month of February, the rates of the food and services in the mountain are not less. In some places, it might exceed the normal rate as well.
During trekking, very few teahouses/lodges and restaurants are in operation. Therefore, getting the appropriate establishments or choices is limited.
