When To Go

The warmest, clearest trekking days are mid-December to February or September and October. June, July, and August are superb trekking months too, but evening temperatures tend to be colder. The wettest months are November, early December, April, and the start of May, which brings some snow. Daytime temperatures range from 28°C (85°F) to 38°C (100°F) in the forest, but plummet to a frigid -2°C (28°F) to -16°C (3°F) at the summit. Generally, with every 200 meters ascended, the temperature drops on degree.
