Even attempting to climb lower altitude mountains will give an opulent chance of viewing the gorgeous sight of highly elevated glimpses of higher mountains that will definitely encourage you to submit the higher and more technical peaks in the next season with the mountaineering training under the guidance of world-renowned training experts and Sherpas in Nepal.

Nepal harbors eight mountains which are above 8000 meters and most of the alpinists long to attempt them as far as possible in their lifetime.

Since the weather is the main cause of success and failure of your summiting a peak the following time are worth considering for your forthcoming mountaineering in Nepal.

One of the suitable time for climb could be March to early May when the days are warmer and nights are also warmer. The morning is incredibly clear and the pristine views of the Himalayas can be caught with the naked eyes.

The autumn season beginning with September to November is the best time to climb in Nepal. This is also the best time for trekking conditions.

If you want to be a lonely traveler and be free from the hassle of a crowd of mountaineers all along the trekking trails or expedition routes then you may also decide to land in Nepal in the months of February to May or December.

The weather conditions are unpredictable in the Himalayas. So you have to get well versed with the climatic conditions of Nepal before climbing.

The only thing you should do is to secure a climbing permit and get equipped with proper gear and get hold of a well-reputed tour agency in Nepal that has enough trekking experience in the Himalayas.

Your choice of mountains could be peaks such as Kala Patthar which is 5643 meters above sea level. The next choice may be Mera peak which is 6476 meters above sea level, followed by Pokalde (5806m), Island peak (6189m), and Lobuche East (6119m).
