When is the best time of the year to trek Annapurna Base Camp?

What is the best time in a year to trek Annapurna Base Camp? – depends on the experience you are looking to have. Trekking Annapurna base camp is one of the most popular trek routes in Nepal Himalayas. It is an easy shorter trek than other high altitude treks in Nepal.

Hiking the Annapurna base camp incorporates diverse terrain, tradition, and wildlife. Along with the most spectacular and close-up view of Annapurna mountain range including Annapurna first, Fish Tail, and Dhaulagiri.

Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp and hike to Poonhill viewpoint is one of most favorite things to do. I have trekked to Annapurna base camp and Poon hill over 30 times taking the foreigner group. And experience that I always prefer when there are going to be fewer people on the base camp trail.

The Annapurna mountain territory has it all, sheer beauty, dramatic massive mountains, friendly people, adventure trails, and an experience that will stay with you forever. The exciting expansive views will leave you mesmerized. Standing at the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain and trekking up to the famous and classic view of Mount Annapurna family including Fish Tail is truly breathtaking.

There are two specific trekking seasons. The best months to trek to Annapurna base camp are pre-monsoon (February, March, April and May) and post-monsoon (late September, October, November and December). It is possible to make this iconic journey in February and September but we prefer the above for our treks into Annapurna base camp. My personal favorites are March, April, Mai, late October, November, and December.

You can trek to Annapurna Base Camp in January and February but it will be very freezing higher up (-10C/-14F to – 15C/-5F) and it can dump snow on the base camp trail at any time of year. If you are planning on trekking to Annapurna Base Camp in these months, you are definitely going to need more time for weather delays. Weather conditions can be more challenging in these winter months.

When planning your trek into the Annapurna region you need to consider the months listed above. Do you want to be there when the base camp is very busy and alive with climbers aiming for the summit? Do you want to have a clearer sky for good photography? You need to consider this in your track planning.

In addition, many people know a few about Nepal but they know much about Mount Annapurna. And trekking in the Annapurna region is a dream for everyone. Mountain Annapurna base camp holiday trek starts from Pokhara – a gateway to the Annapurna area. You can reach Pokhara city either by bus or 25 minutes flight from Kathmandu.

Spring and Autumn are the preferred time to trek to the Annapurna region. During this time, you can see the hiking trail busy with the trekker’s caravan. Sometimes difficult to get cozy rooms. To avoid all these, and walk in the complete wilderness, why not trek in December? This time when many avoid treks fearing the cold. But trust us! You will not regret on decision.

Best time of the year to trek Annapurna Base Camp is either in Spring (March to May) or Autumn (October to December) stays clear skies. Moreover, there are many other popular trek routes connecting with abc.

Annapurna base camp treks even more scenic and joyful in the spring season as the whole forest along the trail turns red, pink, and white with rhododendron flowers. Amazing Annapurna trek can be done any time throughout the year.

Amazing Annapurna Base Camp Experience!

I am a Malaysian who did the 10-day Annapurna Base Camp trek alone with Ram as my guide. This was my first time in Nepal and I have to say that I am highly satisfied with Gokyo Treks. Ammar handled everything from the moment I landed in Kathmandu airport. I had nothing to worry about! The professionalism and hospitality were amazing!

Ram was fantastic as my guide! And my Dhal Bhat buddy! He had very funny jokes and had the local knowledge to point out the things that I would have never noticed myself. He also always went out of the way to make sure I was taken care of all the time.

I had a great time with these guys! At last, I would highly recommend Gokyo Treks to anyone looking to do a trek in Nepal. – Christopher Sien Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

ABC Trek with Gokyo Treks

100% 5 star based on – 223 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

My Travel made and I hiked the ABC trek through Gokyo Treks and it was a wonderful experience. We were very thankful for our guide Lila, as he took great care of us. Our experience would not have been the same without him, especially as it was during monsoon season and we had to take a few detours because of rain. Gokyo treks is a reputable and honest company, and they did everything they could to make our trip the best possible. I would highly recommend! – Caroline Schauder, Washington DC, District of Columbia

Annapurna Base Camp + Gokyo Ridge Trek

100% 5 star based on – 296 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

It was a pleasure to trek with Gokyo Treks from the beginning to the end. The three of us spent the whole month in Nepal and got a little bit of everything. Planning was such a breeze. Normally my girlfriend plans out the itinerary, but since we were really busy in the months before the trip, we decided to go with an agency for the treks we wanted to do. In the month leading up to the trip, we were in constant contact with Ammar to plan the treks. We told him what we wanted and he made it happen. Once we met up with Ammar in Kathmandu, he went through the itinerary and broke down the cost for the treks and for the days. He was very transparent and detailed with the price. We knew how much we were paying for everything at all times.

The itinerary was well planned for both treks. It was not rushed and we had plenty of time to acclimatize (very useful if you are coming from sea level). Bimal was our guide and we had an amazing time with him. We meshed really well with him in ABC and we asked if he could join us on Gokyo Ri trek. He always made sure we were taken care of and feeling well throughout the hike. This mattered a lot at higher altitudes (especially for me). He was a great guide who taught us a lot about the culture and the mountains and it was a pleasure to trek and hang out with him.

Overall, I would highly recommend Gokyo Treks. Without Ammar and his team, we would have been very lost. They made it very easy to just go Trek and not worry about the headache of booking and planning everything. Next time we visit Nepal, we will definitely use Gokyo Treks again. – Rafa Spicy Waffle, California, USA.

ABC trekking

100% 5 star based on – 257 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

My husband and I trekked to the amazing Annapurna Base Camp in October 2016 with Umesh our guide hired through Gokyo Treks and Expedition. Ammar organised everything for us with perfection. We stayed at Ammar’s home after arriving in Kathmandu. What a nice welcoming. We felt like family.

We had an amazing time with our Tour guide Umesh who has almost 20 years experience trekking all over the Himalayas in Nepal. We had such an amazing trip. Pictures can not give back the natural beauty of the Himalayas.

It was amazing to be in the nature far away from civilization. The trekking was hard but it was well worth the effort when we reached the amazing Annapurna Base camp.All the villages had simple tea houses and plentyful food options. I can not recommend enough Goyko Treks and Expeditions.

Trip of the lifetime !! Thank you very much Ammar and Umesh for the amazing experience – Deak Eszter, Melbroune, Australia.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Note!

The Annapurna mountain holiday base camp excursion information as stated above is just a guide and standard template plan that we provide. But we can modify this basecamp trekking plan according to your request to accommodate your specific requirements. Local politics, landslides, cancellation of local flights, weather, transport, or a multitude of other factors that are beyond our control can result in a change of itinerary during the trip.

It is, however, very incredible that the itinerary would be extensively altered. If alterations are necessary the leader will decide the best alternative option, taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. Where a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect, but we cannot be responsible for the results of changes or delays.
