Weather in the mountains is difficult and hard to predict. Of course, it is generally cold at night, and in winter, the days can be quite beautiful if the sun is out. There can be snow or rain storms any time of the year.
Trekking in spring (March – April) is particularly beautiful. As the rhododendrons are in full bloom.
The mountains still have plenty of high snow to snap your photos. You need to be aware that it can get pretty hot and sunstroke can be a risk.
Good polarizing sunglasses or glacier glasses for high altitudes/winter treks. A large brimmed hat are a necessity.
