Today I’m going to give you some advice that not many people will give you.
And I’ll get straight to it: If you want to do a winter trek in snow, avoid the month of December. Choose January and February instead.
Many trekkers raise their eyebrows when I give this advice.
For most of them, December is the prime time to travel. And I understand that. They have holidays around then. Their children have vacations during Christmas and New Year. Or they want to finish up their leaves before the end of year.
On a different note, trekkers also look at December as synonymous with winter. Not many people even think of January and February as winter.
