Nepal is one of the world’s renowned affordable destinations for both solo and group trekking. Let’s focus on “Solo trek” in Nepal. The solo trek is not something new for Nepal. It was in the early 1970s that solo trek was opened for foreigners. Since then many tourists have been relishing the fun of enjoying the solo trek in Nepal, sometimes even without taking the support of a guide.
All the same, it is not so agreeably advisable for all trekkers to go on solo trekking because the matter of safety may be precarious while dealing with strangers during the trekking.
However, you can take a solo trek during peak season when everyone is on a journey and you have nothing to worry about your safety as there will be a lot of trekkers in front of you and at the backside. So, choosing the best and safe time is going to make your trek tremendously exotic and spectacular. Of course, it is undeniable fact that solo trek can have both pros and cons. Solo trekking is very popular in Nepal.
A good season for solo trekking
Nepal has some trekking regions where you can trek at any time of the year. However, spring and autumn are the two best seasons when tourists flock in Nepal. This the time when the climatic conditions become very pleasant for the tourists to trek in Nepal as they can see mountain peaks clearly.
