The perspective is different and interesting walk of winter (December-February) in the Himalayas of Nepal.

Summary:

A. advantages: prices for accommodation and related services, a minority, see, minimal precipitation relative to the rest of the year.

B. disadvantages: heights source (especially at night)

C. Lodge: all tourist areas (such as langtang, Everest, Annapurna, lmbo) the possibility for organized accommodation + meals based on rotation.

Does anybody have similar experience/opinion contravenes-

Very interesting, thanks. I wish I wonder how the picture «EBC appears at this time.

Too bad there's no missing periods Europe-precipitation in winter. On the other hand, at least we can do.

It's not just the cold altitudes. There is a chance that apassim will be pretty high. Nepalese weather also changed (along with the rest of the globe). I was myself in late January early February.
One time was amazing and comfortable and empty. Second time was a nightmare of weather. It is true that by the Everest region drier than Ah marabiss him.
In short, it's a gamble. Also, you should know what you're doing in the snow and ice that will.
You can get a powerful experience on the trip in January-February. No one on the trails there. Passim to villages (three days away to Greece) are stranded. The locals down to valleys or go to Kathmandu/Pokhara

I really don't know about precipitation, but I'm pretty sure about the temperature.
When winter temperatures easily reach minus 30 in high parts which means the preachers.
No heat in the high lodegim and this source has no running water. Life becomes very difficult.
I talked to last French girl winter this year in a Mongo dance that is at a height of 2800 m she described it as a period of prolonged agony which she was attached to the oven and could barely sleep at night beyond the temperatures should also remember that in the winter gets White crane kind. Everything is frozen I traveled in March and got white crane and frozen lakes so a fortiori in December.
Nothing can be done. The most beautiful to travel there in September and October before winter

Thanks for the responses.

Amnon-no heat? According to this guy's post (and from what I remember hiking there) to warm up the Central Chamber until 20:00.

Right about the timing. I'm trying to get there since 2012, and succeeded because of the narrow window of weather-good to hear that there are alternatives.

With regard to the landscape. Subjective matter. We hiked in September-October and actually loved the photos:).

-Deer, the weather changed, what exactly do you mean? Unexpectedly? Cold/hot?

Heat the dining room but not in the bedrooms. For this purpose.
And the food is cheap because the heating medium furnace is yak and crap shit bag costs quite a lot.
About the snowy landscape in front of the mofusr landscape. Indeed subjective, but snowy landscape there is skiing and turquoise glacial lakes there just before winter.

Heat 21 the central room in the high season. Off season nobody you heat anything up to 21.

The weather has changed little because the monsoon moves and it affects the whole region. There are also precipitation amounts in January, February (monsoons of course) what used to be relatively rare (before 2010). And more extreme events. Also in terms of temperature.

The bottom line is a matter of luck and that conditions are challenging. That doesn't mean you should try

Keep in mind that many apassim will be blocked. Is the guy in the link you gave was able to go a week doesn't mean someone preferences later or earlier.

Hawks in the season (I was in late April), was really called night bottles froze us. There the only thing standing between you and the outside is a piece of plywood. Sounds very tough anyway.

I add in my two pence.
Twice in Nepal, once in March and once in September.
I was alone at the lodge were never the stove fuels. MAX I get a blanket to cover up.
Everest region, spoke with some lodges at lobuche and sherp gorakh, so they close the lodges for winter until March.
Crossed cho la after avalanche all you hakosth drop. It took me about two hours and a half if not more. Very nice experience, but not very safe.
And of course, source and source.
Ultimately I think it is safe and possible. But the planning should be.
Reading Russian Forum someone doing it. But it's so devastated.
BTW, I've long wanted to do a winter trip I did inquire if this could interest you, then look for information about a trip on the River through zanskar in Ladakh in northern India.

I was in langtang and February gosiconda was a little colder and we had to ask that will heat up most nights we would sit together with the locals around the stove to add to the experience. When we returned to Kathmandu after the Lakes band that was closed in March. In addition the village we begged us to stay straight, said Lina free power showers and even discounts on food. On the other hand in Kanchanaburi was blocked stripe at the beginning of the season (mid-March).
I think there's something of a tourist hiking season (Annapurna, Everest, langtang) shashbilim free and packed with tourists.

After many deliberations we decided to sample the winter in the Nepali Himalaya. We trekked for two weeks in February, and it was great.

Agreed the experience at several levels:

1. the weather — except one day about 10 mm of snow fell, the sky was clear, visibility, temperature during the day and even warm (20-25 degrees) up to 3500-4000 m altitude. The Sun and the more meaningful image height changes and cold nights (10-15 degrees below zero, with a height of 5400 at 0700 on the morning temperature was minus 22 combined from freezing).

According to the locals, snowstorm that could block the axis are not routinely but are difficult to predict and influence (two or three days and the axis). Insofar February 2016 was slightly different with a very little number of days of snow compared to last year.

2. Nepal is the country-I've traveled. Of course, this is a personal opinion, but on the differences in the offseason: clearly

February-dry landscape, rivers and Lakes levels are low (sometimes wearing ice or frozen layer altogether), we came across many frozen waterfalls, summits to build and loaded in interesting contrast shades of Brown. Night sky are amazing and my wrist which had star experience after the monsoon season because of cloudiness.

September-the successor to the monsoons which last time I hiked the green landscape (to immigration from the trees), rushing rivers, Lakes allow bathing, agriculture diversified fields. As of noon, the view is blocked by clouds that frequently accompanies precipitation.

3. the load is the most significant point for us. We felt we were alone on the trail, without distractions, everywhere received quick service efficiency and courtesy. Throughout the journey we came across 10 15. We don't dislike people again but in these conditions experience increased and preferred. Another advantage is the high availability of blankets in and the lack of need for a bag.

4. Despite the impact of the earthquake last year, to gather all known routes open to tourism. Langtang area that was severely damaged and edit for travellers although changes have taken place in the field. There were many conflicting rumors before we left and it is important for us to deny them from personal experience so that the impact in the vital lifeline (and, in certain areas) will collapse.

That is, until next time ...:)

Thanks dawn.

February is not quite winter nor quite spring. It stated could be good or could be bad. I've been twice in February and once was great and a second time.

The huge advantage is you're really alone.

Dawn, great pictures! Great landscapes and see the pictures clear air.

What is considered the highest Himalaya trail? What season and what "fringe"?

We turn to the Annapurna + sortie poon hill.
We wanted to visit the region for a long time but the rush season deter us.

Arthur-it depends on the area where.
Generally the peak periods after the monsoons (October-November) and spring (March-April).
The season a month before and after the season.

Mainly in Western areas have found the rain so that the monsoon season (June to September) there is no problem to explore (dolpa district).

In principle, Yes. That doesn't mean it's always simple and apassim.

I've seen pictures from amphu labtsa March-and it doesn't seem to be.

OK so for those who understand how much days. we where feasible to walk continuously in the Himalayas? Is reasonable to expect at least 3 months of stable weather (it's all relative, of course) in order to make the path in Himalayas?
