Some of the most favorite summer trekking routes of Nepal are Upper Dolpo Trek, Upper Mustang Trek, Annapurna Circuit Trek, Rara Lake trek and few others. All of the above mentioned places are rain shadow area thus rarely experiences any sorts of rainstorms.
These areas are surrounded by Trans Himalayas thus the regions are very dry and on the leeward side of the mountains. The mountains which surrounds these vast regions blocks the rains and thus the soil of this region is not fertile for agriculture. Furthermore, the region is warm and dry.
