The massif Annapurna Mountains cover the Annapurna Region in the Northwest part of Nepal. Annapurna Circuit with Base Camp Trek provides an opportunity to explore cultural varieties, mesmerizing landscapes, high snow mountains, and different flora and fauna. Starting from Greenery hilly region our trail passes through different rivers, streams, waterfalls, fertile agricultural land, different indigenous community, and massif forest. It also offers the natural music of different chirping birds and colorful dancing butterflies on the way. The trail of Annapurna Circuit Trekking slowly and gradually leads you up to the smiling high silver mountains to the world’s biggest pass, Thorong La (5416 m) to the desert and bare hills of Mustang, where you get an impression as you are in Tibet.

Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the most popular and classic treks in the world.  This trek is not only famous throughout Nepal, but it is one of the top trekking trails in the world. There was a time when there were no roads and a minimum amount of tea houses to stay but nowadays the roads are up to Manang Village. Before starting of Annapurna circuit trek, we need to drive to Beshisahar from Kathmandu. After spending a night in Beshisahar the next morning we start a complete trek towards Thorong-La Pass via Manang and other villages. The roads are along the trail but recently TAAN and the government made optional routes to avoid the roads but still, you can hear the vehicle beeping around.

What is the weather & temperature like in trekking?

Spring – March / April / May / June

Spring happens to be one of the best times of the year to visit the Annapurna region, although because of this, it can become somewhat crowded. The beautiful clear blue sky can be seen and the many different species of flowers are visible at the lower altitude. During springtime, the average temperature is 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), with a maximum of 20 degrees C (77 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of 0 degrees C (32 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 2500 meters.

July / August through Mid-September is Monsoon Season

This season is not recommended to travel as it rains in the lower altitudes. There are positive sides to trekking during the monsoon months as the excess rainfall can provide ample chance to see spectacular views of the waterfall and it’s also the best season to avoid the crowds. During this time, the average temperature is 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), with a maximum of 30 degrees C (86 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of 5 degrees C (41 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 2500 meters.

Autumn – End of September / October / November

Similar to springtime, autumn in this region is also a crowded season, but it’s one of the best times to trek. While it lacks the beauty of flowers, the clear blue sky can be seen, affording incredible views from just about every angle. The average temperature during the fall is 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), with a maximum temp of 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -10 degrees C (14 Degrees F), in the morning and at night, for areas above 2500 meters altitude.

Winter- December/ January/ February

Winter starts from mid-December till mid-February in this region. People still like to trek this month due to fewer crowds. The average temperature during the winter is 10 degrees C (50 Degrees F), with a maximum temp of 17 degrees C (62.6 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -5 degrees C (5 Degrees F), in the morning and night, for areas above 2500 meters altitude.

Our guides are 24 hours available for services during the trek. They are trained to use first aid kits and have the knowledge to use an Oxy meter. They are very much aware that the higher the altitude the oxygen level gets lesser so to get updated on the oxygen level of our client and to know whether they are fit enough or need extra precautions to continue.
