This off the beaten track trek will give you an intimate look into the culture, while enjoying breathtaking Himalayan views along the way. To do this trek in 5 days you can take a hired jeep from Kathmandu directly to Gatlang.

Weather Conditions in June

change start

The middle of June typically marks the beginning of the monsoon. Clear mornings are still possible but get increasingly less likely towards the end of the month. Be prepared for rain and hot humid weather in the low elevation valleys. The added moister means the hills are beginning to change to their vibrant monsoon green.

On average there are 17 days with precipitation in June. The highest point on the trek is Tatopani, Tamang at 2600 m. During June, expect high temperatures of around 21.8°C (71°F) and lows down to 11.8°C (53°F) at Tatopani, Tamang.
