Best Season

Generally speaking, the ideal trekking season would be Spring (March – June) and Autumn (September – December). For Spring, with winter has just come to an end, the sky clear and the mountain tips covered by snow, it is a good choice for Annapurna Circuit Trek. For hills above 3,500m, they would be all covered by snow as well. There may be short showers, yet most days are warm and sunny. For Autumn, after the monsoon and before the cold sets in, this period is perfect to trek if you are looking for the panoramic view of the mountains. The sky is cloudless with lush plants shimmering under the gentle sunshine. Although the snow is less than that of the Spring season, it is the best time for the crystal clear view. The temperature is perfect as well – not scorching hot during the day and durably cool at night.

Best Trekking Ever!!! ❤

(5/5)

Kathmandu→ Pokhara→ Nayapul

This is my first time to trek in mountains and it's definitely the greatest one ever!

The guides are very considerate and provided us with very satisfactory service like airport pickup, renting the outdoor gear...Additionally, the most unforgettable part was the 4-day trekking in the mountains, which was a pure spiritualization to my mind. When reaching the summit, you'll find the sacredness and the beauty of nature
