Annapurna

Trek in Annapurna, and you ensure yourself of a wonderful time. The mountain views are gorgeous. In other words, the variety of scenery is hard to match. And, the villages and monasteries you pass offer a peek into Nepali, Tibetan and trans-Himalayan culture. Also, there is an amazing variety of habitats, from down in the valleys (below 1,000m) to the summit of Annapurna (8,091m).

Trails along the lower valleys usually go through farming fields, and dive occasionally into shady forests. However, upstream, you enter spectacular rhododendron forests. And, occasionally, you see bright white magnolia trees and orchids and ferns. If you are here in spring, you will find yourself in an oasis of spectacular blooms. The colours range from red to pink to white, depending on altitude.

Best season

The best trekking season for Annapurna depends on the trek you choose. So, there are suitable treks all year round.

In general, during monsoon, the routes south from the Annapurna range are rainy. But, the Annapurna Circuit Trek and Tilicho Lake Trek are mostly on the north side from this range. Thus, in the so called 'rain shadow'. These are great options in that summer time.

In the winter, however, it is better to stay on the south or west side of the mountain range. Because, the high pass of Thorong La can be closed due to heavy snow.
