BEST SEASON FOR ANNAPURNA CIRCUIT TREK  TO DO IT IN A SHORT PERIOD

 

SPRING: From March to May, the days are sunny and the temperatures are increasingly mild. The view of the mountains worsens as the monsoon approaches, but it is also the time of flowering for the magnificent rhododendrons, especially in the Annapurna region and Manaslu region.

SUMMER: In June and July, the humid air masses of the Bay of Bengal collide and rise on the Himalayas. Moisture in the air cools and falls as rain — the monsoon. Its effects are uneven across Nepal, and some regions are less affected. The monsoon loses its intensity as it moves from the southeast to the northwest; north of the Annapurna in the areas of Manang, Naar, Phu, Dolpo, and Mustang the effect of the monsoon is minor.
