People don’t often visit Nepal during the summer because of the “monsoon.” But there are a lot of Nepal Trips that are actually really fun this time of year… if you don’t mind a little mud. One of my favorite Himalayan treks is the Langtang Trek and it is perfect for summer. Not far from Kathmandu, and inexpensive compared to Everest Base Camp Trek or Annapurna Trek, the Langtang area is special to Nepal. Langtang has spectacular Himalayan views, quaint lodges, cheese farms and a Sherpa Culture that is unique to this region of the Himalaya.
This is one of the less traveled routes in Nepal, so in my opinion it is one of Nepal’s best treks. If you are like me, the crowded tourist trail of Everest Trek in high season can be a turn-off. I like everything to be a little more quiet, and in Nepal, you will find that the art of doing things slowly means a better quality experience.
With that in mind, I suggest if you want to travel to Nepal in Summer, consider the Langtang Trek or the Helembu Trek (Helembu starts in Kathmandu).
