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 flower are visible in the lower altitude. During springtime, the average temperature is 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), with a maximum of 25 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 really recommended to travel as it rains in the lower altitudes. There are positive sides of 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 start from mid-December till mid-February in this region. People still like to trek in 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 at night, for areas above 2500 meters altitude.

Our guides are 24 hours available for the services during the trek. They are trained to use first aid kit and have knowledge to use Oxy meter. They are very much aware that 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 needs extra precautions to continue. Guides carry local sim cards both Nepal Telecom and NCell in order to update whereabouts and situation of our every client.

Is water provided and is there still water available at higher altitudes ? Is it filtered/boiled ?
Bottled water is easily available at the lodges and tea houses. You can buy bottled water at the cost of USD 2 to USD 3  per litter. You can also drink the normal tap or spring water if you bring the purifying aid with you.
