Best Time to Trek Annapurna Circuit
Like many other treks in Nepal, there are times of year when the weather is ideal. The best times to trek the Annapurna Circuit are widely considered to be October and November, or April and May. The weather is generally clear and dry during these two seasons, so going into high altitudes is not too cold. These two seasons are also the busiest times to be on the trail, with trekkers from all over the world heading into the Himalayas.
You can also trek at other times of the year, but you’ll need to be more prepared for weather condi. The winter season, December to February, can also have clear skies and stunning views. But, at higher elevations, it can be extremely cold, with thick snow on the ground, which can often cause the Thorong La Pass to close at short notice. If you plan to trek during the winter, bring extra layers, and a thick sleeping bag suitable for temperatures of at least -20°C, which can be purchased or rented in Kathmandu.
