Exploring the pure natural beauty of Nepal through trekking in Nepal during the monsoon season is quite different.  When it rains, everything changes: the mountains turn green, and the air feels fresh and full of life.

There’s something special about watching the rain from the top of a hill while sipping on tea or coffee. You will enjoy listening to the sound of the rain pattering against leaves and the smell of the freshness of the soil that makes the journey such a special one.

It is always so wonderful to see waterfalls during this season. The rain challenges the rivers and streams and produces attractive waterfalls that roll on the surface of the mountains. When you stand beside them, you feel inferior to the forces of nature. 

While there is a kind of invasion experienced sometimes during the monsoon season with raindrops on the trek, it feels more quiet. Not as many are using the trails you can take your time and enjoy the natural setting. They get replenished with plants and animals responding with life to the availability of rain. 

If you are bored with crowds and sizzling temperatures or you want to discover new places then it is ideal for traveling. You can discover the corners and go to the off-beat areas where people live in complete symbiosis with their surroundings.
