As Trekking in Nepal is a seasonal adventure tour and trek activities, we’ve two best seasons for this Annapurna Trek and they are as follows:
Spring(March, April, May): The season in which rhododendron sweeps the ascending altitudes with its magnanimous color and beauty and due to which colorful hills are spotted throughout the journey wherever possible. One also gets the chance to collect the panoramic view of the Annapurna Himalayas.
Autumn(September, October, November): The perfect season to trek in which the dry air sweeps the nation and due to which the sky seems to be crystal clear. The trekking trails are also neither too wet nor too slippery. One can enjoy the panoramic views of the snowcapped Himalayas of the Annapurna.
As it is one of the easy treks with a short duration as the Annapurna Sunrise Trek or the Everest Sunrise Trek, one can also enjoy the trek during the winter season as well. Ample winter clothes are recommended for this season.
