This huge altitude range has a dramatic effect on climate, weather patterns and temperatures – which greatly affect the trekking regions and the best times for treks. 80% of Nepal’s rain falls during the Monsoon Season: ~ mid June to mid September. From December-February, it can be bitterly cold at high altitudes.

The sandwich was created by the, ongoing, northward tectonic thrust of India under Asia (begun ~60 million years ago). The upward thrust of the Himalayan chain has been most rapid in the last two million years. Today, India continues to move north and under Asia at ~50mm/year and the mountains rise at ~4mm/year. (The recent earthquakes shifted Everest ‘back southeast’ 30mm!).
