The spring season (March-May) is one of the best seasons for the Langtang Gosainkunda trekking. During this season, the weather is favorable and the views of mountains are super stunning. The new flowers will be blooming which makes the green forests and valley beautiful. It is a great season for the trek and exploring the nature. The monsoon season (June- Aug) is not a good time for the trekking. While trekking in monsoon you will face heavy rainfall most of the time which makes the path slippery and difficult for trekking. However it is fun to explore the mesmerizing waterfalls, rivers in monsoon. The autumn (Sept-Nov) is another best season for the Langtang Gosainkunda trek. As the monsoon ends the autumn season starts with clear skies, perfect weather and mesmerizing views of the mountains. It is a peak trekking season and the trails and teahouses are overcrowded.
