March to May spring season will be the best time when wildflowers, especially the rhododendron (Nepal national flower), are blooming. The walk will be more attractive with beautiful, bright morning till afternoon, with some raining chances.
October to early December, another best month around Autumn/Fall and the beginning of winter, most days are unobstructed views and walks. But can be much colder with freezing temperatures as altitude gains with chances of snow sometimes.
In the Monsoon months (mid-June to mid-September), fewer trekkers venture to Annapurna base camp. The lodge can be closed sometimes due to the harsh and humid climate, which makes the walking trails much harder and slippery. But much greener hills with lush vegetation in wet seasons.
An unforgettable journey to Annapurna Base Camp
I completed the Annapurna base camp short trek with Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks & Expedition Pvt. Ltd in March. I found their management was excellent, and they provided helpful information while we asked about the trip. The company offers the best accommodation in Kathmandu and Pokhara along the Annapurna trek.
Our guide, Ram, was kind, helpful, and friendly, and he always made fun along the trekking trail. He has immeasurable knowledge and experience of the Himalayan region trek in Nepal. So, we finished our holiday with more adventure and a memorable lifetime journey. Thank you very much.
