Travel season

Trekking to Ghalegaun is favorable throughout the year between September and May. Spring and autumn seasons are best to trek through the lush green and blossoming forests with clear skies. During winter, the temperature drops to a minus in the high altitude, but you can enjoy the winter too as there is a wider view of snow-capped mountains to the north of Ghale gaun. On the other hand, trekking during the monsoon through the forest is not a good idea. The views are also obstructed by rains clouds and so is your mobility through the trail.
