Weather Conditions in February

change start

February has a slightly higher chance of precipitation than January and a slight increase in the chance of clouds, but in general it is typically a very dry month. While there is little rain, skies in the hills and valleys further from the high mountains can be hazy from dust and pollution. At high altitudes, temperatures can drop to well below freezing. Even during the day, temperatures may not rise much above freezing, if at all, and the snow that does fall doesn’t melt and can become hard and icy. This can make crossing high passes more difficult. During this season it may be wise to bring crampons or at a minimum a good trekking pole.

At a glance
On average there are 3 days with precipitation in February. The highest point on the trek is Chulu East Summit at 6584 m. During February, expect high temperatures of around -10.1°C (14°F) and lows down to -27.1°C (-17°F) at Chulu East Summit.
