Debate: Best season to climb and trek Himalaya: Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter?

When To Climb - Trek Himalaya: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter?
Gasherbrum and K2 are best climbed and trekked during June and July. Nepal's best seasons: Spring + Autumn.

How are you and what have you been doing to stay in shape? My name is Dan Mazur and I feel lucky to be a 12 year SummitClimb and SummitTrek leader of climbs and treks together with Men and Women of all Ages and Abilities. One nice thing about my job: I get to climb with old and new friends in all 4 seasons. Which do I like best? Well it really depends upon where you want to go DURING THE 4 SEASONS !

Spring (April and May) is the best season for Nepal Everest Summit, Lhotse Summit, Everest Camp 3 Training Climb, Everest View Glacier School and Everest Base Camp Trek. The weather is beginning to warm up and the mountains are coming out of the fridge. The days are long and its just before the heavy wet rains of Monsoon season. We have a few spots left in our Spring Nepal Climbs if you hurry. Dan Mazur and expert Sherpas will be leading. Tell your friends and earn a nice finder's-fee! Permits closing on March 1st ! MUST READ TO JOIN: .

Summer (June, July, August) is the best season for Karakoram climbs and treks of K2, Gasherbrum, and Broad Peak. Winter's snows have melted, and the trails are finally passable for porters and donkeys. During June and July the snow pack stabilizes and by August those snows are gone and the rocks are sticking out. July has the most stable weather, lovely warm, long dry sunny days before the heat of August. If you will be joining Dan Mazur and our strong experienced Nepali Sherpas then you need to submit your application now. The Karakoram is in a very remote and peaceful region where the permits take time to obtain, so lets get going now. We handle all of the paperwork and visas for you and we have never been denied! We must apply for your permit before March 1st !

Autumn (September, October, November): Time to return to Nepal. The Monsoon has ended, the days are warm and sunny and the nights are crisp and clear. Autumn is the most stable high-pressure weather pattern of the year, and now is the time for Manaslu, Baruntse, Ama Dablam, Mera Peak, Everest Glacier School and Everest Base Camp Trek. Dan Mazur is leading our Autumn Nepal climbs and treks with our hometown Nepali Sherpas. September, October and November are very busy and coming soon, but there is still time to join if you want to plan ahead for the best Autumn you have ever had. So come on in and be sure and tell your friends too and earn your cash referral bonus for bringing us new members.

Winter (December, January, February) is time to hibernate. BUT WAIT, please dont forget about Christmas and New Year at Everest Base Camp with an optional climb of Island Peak, and, south of the Equator, its prime climbing season for our very popular Aconcagua 7 SummitClimb with our expert South American leaders and logistics!

Permit Deadline for April-May Himalayan Trips:

Less than 60 days. Everest Summit from Nepal South, Mount Lhotse, Everest Training Climb, Island Peak, Everest Glacier School, Base Camp Treks, and Service Treks.
