The best time to undertake the Annapurna Circuit Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons when the weather is generally clear, and the skies are sunny, offering excellent visibility and comfortable trekking conditions.

5 - Excellent

Super  trip with 22 days trek around Annapurnas. We were with my family, with my husband and my older sister (“Didi” in Nepali). Everything went perfectly despite the shortage of fuel and the recent earthquake. Yes, go to Nepal! Nepali need you!

Our guide, Bhuwan Maskey is lovely and took good care of us, group of 3 (young) seniors! We managed the passage of the Thorong Pass at 5416m without problem, thanks to acclimatization perfectly managed by Bhuwan, a timing and a team welded and tuned. Bhuwan,us to discover not only great peaks, but also a discovery of the culture of the country and its people. We visited very interesting Buddhist and Hindu temples and monasteries, beautiful villages, and participated in Hindu festivals, since we were there in full “festival” period. We have already planned to return a spring to see the giant rhododendrons in bloom!
