Best time for Langtang Valley trek

The best time to do the Langtang Valley trek is during spring (March-May) and autumn (September-early December). These seasons present mild and stable weather, clear mountain views, and the picturesque natural beauty that makes it perfect for trekking. Monsoon makes the trekking route slippery whereas winter is too cold. Views are also not so clear during this season. This is why winter and monsoon are not preferred.
