Last Updated on May 5, 2023

Hot Wet Cool

In northern Thailand, the best weather for trekking is between November and February. Another period with a green mountain is from June to August. It all depends on where you want to go and what season or temperature you prefer to travel in.

Thailand features a diverse tropical forest with varying climates in each zone. Thailand is classified into six geographical areas based on natural characteristics such as landforms and cultural trends.

Before planning a trek, I would to shared understanding with Thailand’s three seasons. Most people are unaware that Thailand’s southern region has only two seasons. The north and south points of the mainland are separated by more than 1650 kilometers. As a result, the climate in each zone is distinct.

Northern weather to trekking

June – October is green season

Beginning in June, the beginner level will be offered. This duration is ideal for adventure trekking in the jungle, with a green mountain backdrop and beautiful wildlife. You will be surrounded by a real-life and beautiful plantation landscape. The 2-3-day journey will be enjoyable for you and your children.

September had too much rain, but I loved it. The easy route turn into a hard trek that is wet and airless stuffy cuase a lot of rain. Its make the trail sliperary and hard walk if you never walk in the jungle before.

November – Febuary is the best

The best weather for trekking will begin in the middle of October and will transition to a cool and dry season in November – February. Absolutely, December and January appear to be pleasant, but the weather is bitterly cold and dry, with temperatures ranging from 10-15 °C at night to 25-30 °C in the afternoon.

The climate at Mae Hong Son is ideal for trekking. Especially from the end of June to the middle of August, and from November to the middle of February.

March – April is nothing

Summer begins in the middle of February and lasts until the end of May; trekking is not recommended in the months of March and April. (Heatstroke*)

Clients should be physically fit, have good mobility, and have some trekking experience before embarking on a difficult trek tour. It is hot and humid, with particularly heavy rain (August to September) posing challenges and making the paths dangerous at times during the trek.

Southern weather

The best weather for trekking is different in the north, and it’s not the same time. Summer runs from May to October along the Thai Gulf Coast, from Surat Thani to the southern border. Summer runs from December to April along the Andaman coast, from Ranong to Satun.

The trekking area is small and scattered throughout the countryside, particularly in the provinces of Surat Thani and Nakhon Si Thammarat. The Marine Park and Islands cover the most land.

The rainy season in the south is characterized by strong winds and heavy rainfall. The amount of rain and the length of time it rained. It comes in one-time big storm events. As a result, trekking in the summer is a good option. And you will find only a short trek tour. Because the tourists will enjoy the beach and there will be a lot of activities on the seaside.

I wish you a pleasant season and a well-planned trip so that you and your family can enjoy the best trekking in Thailand.
