Best Season for Ganesh Himal Base Camp Trekking.
The best time for Ganesh Himal Base Camp Trek is during the spring season from March to May, when days are clear most of the month’s chances of light rain and snow sometimes in the late afternoon.
Cold in the morning and night time, but very scenic with wildflowers in seasonal bloom especially tall trees to bush rhododendron, magnolia, and other bright flowers. The day is clear for grand views of snow peaks and with much longer sunlight hours during the spring season.
Next, the best season is autumn/fall to pre-winter from the middle month of September to early December, although much colder morning and evening time, with short sunlight hours due to autumn and near winter. But most days are bright and clear for mountain views and walks with the bright starry night sky, and chances of snow in higher areas sometimes.
