But as Annapurna region belongs to rain shaded area, most of its trekking options like Annapurna Circuit Trek, Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Jomsom Muktinath Trek can be done all over the year.

But if you wish more lush views and want to avoid unnecessary obstacles, spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) are the best season to prefer.

Q10. What is the condition of temperature and weather in the region?

Weather in high mountains is always hard to predict. This totally depends on the location, altitude, and time of year. Generally, the days are warm and nights are a bit cool.

Moreover, due to the Annapurna’s location, weather here is significantly different than other regions. Thus, the trekking region has variable climatic changes.

As the large portion of Annapurna is rain-shadow area, trekking is possible throughout the year.

The region takes you through sub-tropical region to the alpine peak section. Thus, you experience the every level of geographical and climatic zones.

The temperature drops as the altitude increases.

October- November

Being the busiest trekking season, the weather is calm and cool. The average day temperature is 14-17 degree Celsius and that of night is above freezing. With the crystal clear view, the chances of rainfall is very low.

December- February

The coldest weather period in the region is comparatively less preferable season climatewise. The day temperature is very cold and the nights are totally freezing. In this winter period, the days are even cloudy, dull, and dry.

Rain is not frequent but snowfall or avalanches are highly possible.

March- May

As this lies in the spring season, the average temperature is around 10 degrees Celsius and nights are below 1 or 2 degrees.

It could be hot at lower sections and even arid in some regions.

June- September

This is the monsoon period characterized by heavy downpours, huge mudslides, and crawling leeches. Though the rain does not really affect the region as most of them are rain-protected. The lower regions may receive 800mm of rain whereas the rate is 50mm at Jomsom and Marpha region.

Q11. What are the possibilities of getting altitude sickness?

The chances of having altitude sickness doesn’t relates with how fit you are. Though the effects of altitude sickness are mostly likely to come on when you’re above 3000 meters. It would be wise if you don’t ascend 300-400 meters per day after that altitude. This means short walk within couple of hours.

Always remember not to ascend too high or too quick. Also, good health, proper care, and drinking plenty of water are the obvious prevention ideas.

Moreover to be familiar with the heights, we have prepared itinerary focusing proper acclimatization. If you get any symptoms on the trail, then we will immediately descend to lower altitude. In the case of emergency, our professionals also provide medical support. Helicopter rescue is also available.

Q12. Where will I stay?

At Kathmandu and Pokhara, we will arrange a three-star hotel with breakfast included. Whilst on the trekking routes, for night stay, there are options of lodges, tea houses, or even camping. Amongst, the tea house is the most popular one. The accommodation will be simple, comfortable, and clean. They generally provide basic facilities with a mattress and a quilt/blanket. The rooms are either single or double bedded.

Here, in seasonal month, you may even have to share your room or sleep in the dining hall. Thus, it is better to carry a sleeping bar fulfilling your own sleeping requirement.

Talking about the latrine service in the teahouse, toilets are always outside the room with basic facilities. Most tea houses have western flushing toilet but in higher region the simple squat toilets are available.

Q13. What will I eat?

We get paradise of food especially in the cities areas especially in Kathmandu valley. We have a lot of restaurants with different cuisine in city but during the trek we get to eat from Continental and Nepali menu especially choices like Pasta, Pizza, Mo. Mo, soup items, Potatoes items, Dal Bhat, Hot drinks Tea & Coffee etc.

While there are many options and menus on fooding list too. From basic dal bhat to there are pasta, momo, curries, pizza, pancakes, porridge, eggs, and potatoes.

The foods are freshly cooked in the kitchen. There are different varieties of delicious Nepali and continental dishes. The local, daal bhat (rice and lentils) with some mixed vegetables is the best choice. Also, the garlic soup will help you with acclimatization.

To go vegetarian in the mountains is an excellent idea in every aspect.

Talking about drinks, you will find all common types of drinks like coffee, tea, hot lemon with honey, green tea, ginger tea, soft as well as hard drinks.

Good to veg all over the trek. Choose vegetarian dal bhat for lunch, a combination of rice, dal, and vegetables. They are real worth and healthy from all aspect.

Q14. What about drinking water on the trail of the Annapurna region?

You need to carry the means to purify water like iodine or a fine ceramic filters as the streams could be contaminated. You also have the option of bottled water but the disposal of plastic bottles is the problem.

We recommend the mineral water but boiled water is as always much preferable. That doesn’t make any harm to your digestive system.

Q15. What is the mode of communication while we are trekking?

For communicating, there are telephone in some village along the routes. They can even make international calls. Moreover, our guildes will carry the local mobiles. As the Nepali communication lines like Nepal Telecom and Ncell has good network coverage, you can have national as well as international call directly and easily.

As Nepal is a developing country, electricity on several trekking cities can be scare. Even in the trekking areas with electricity resource, you may face load shedding. Due to which you may have to pay 100-800 Nrs per hour to charge your gadgets and others. Same is the case in Annapurna Base Camp.

So, it is better to carry extra necessary electronic gadgets like power bank, batteries, torches, solar panels etc with you.

Q17. What to wear while trekking in Annapurna region?

This depends on where and which season you trek as not all treks are of higher altitude. But independent of your location, always remember to carry warm clothes like down jackets, thermals, and warmers. This is the preparation for unseasonable cold and unpredictable weather on your route. The above list on clothing and equipments will surely help you.

  1. An incredible time in a beautiful country!!!!
    RandalBarnett26th February, 2019

    My friend and I had never been to Nepal, we decided to go on a spur of the moment decision with no expectations. We ended up meeting Prakash from Osho at the airport in Kathmandu and from there we arranged some activities including a scenic flight to Everest and of course trekking! Our experience trekking was incredible, the highlight of our trip. Our guides Ram and Prakash were wonderful and the local Nepalese people in the Annapurna region are amazing. The Poon Hill trek is highly recommended! Thanks to Osho for everything, I highly recommend Dinesh and Co. Our only regret is not staying in Nepal for longer. I'll be back again!
