Best time to visit Annapurna Base Camp 

The best time to do the Annapurna Base Camo trek is during the Autumn and Spring seasons. During these times, the weather is generally clear, with sunny skies and mild temperatures, making it ideal for trekking.


Autumn is one of the best times to do the Annapurna Base Camp trek, and it is a popular season for trekkers. The weather is generally clear and mild, with sunny skies and moderate temperatures, making it perfect for trekking. This season provides excellent visibility of the surrounding mountains, including Annapurna, Machhapuchre (Fishtail), and Dhaulagiri.

During this season, one can see colorful landscapes, with the forests and hillsides changing into beautiful shades of gold, red, and yellow. Unlike the monsoon season, the autumn season receives less rainfall, making the trails less slippery and easier to navigate. However, trekkers should be prepared for crowded trails because it is peak trekking season in Nepal.


Spring which falls between March to May is also considered one of the best times to trek to Annapurna Base Camp. During the Spring season, the weather is generally warm and mild, making it perfect for trekking. Temperature can range from 10 to 20 degrees Celsius at lower altitudes, and it is usually not too cold at night. Spring is the time when the rhododendron forests are in full bloom, and the trekking trails are dotted with beautiful pink and red flowers.

The colorful blooms provide a stunning backdrop against the snow-capped peak.  There is slightly less crowded than the autumn, providing a quieter and more peaceful trekking experience and also offering breathtaking views of the mountains. Although the weather is generally mild, spring can bring sudden showers or snowfall at higher altitudes. However, trekkers should be prepared for unpredictable weather conditions and carry appropriate gear.


Monsoon season in Nepal lasts from June to August, and it is not recommended to trek to Annapurna Base Camp during this time. During the monsoon season, the Annapurna region receives heavy rainfall, causing landslides and making the trails slippery and dangerous to navigate. The heavy rain and clouds during the monsoon season can also result in poor visibility, making it difficult to see the beautiful mountain view.

Due to the high risk of landslides and flash floods during the monsoon seasons, some of the trails may be closed for safety reasons. The high humidity and lower air pressure during the monsoon season can increase the risk of altitude sickness, making it difficult for trekkers to acclimatize.


Winter which falls between December to February is not the most popular time to trek to Annapurna Base Camp, but it is possible. Winter in the Annapurna region can be very cold, especially at higher altitudes, with temperatures dropping below freezing at night. Trekkers should be prepared for cold weather and bring appropriate gear such as warm jackets, gloves, and hats. During the winter season, the trekking trails can be covered with snow and ice, making them slippery and difficult to navigate.

Trekkers should be experienced in trekking on snow and ice and should have the proper equipment, such as crampons and ice axes. Winter can bring clouds and fog, reducing visibility and making it difficult to see the surrounding mountains. The winter season is the least crowded time of year to trek to Annapurna Base Camp, providing a more peaceful and less crowded trekking experience. In this season, the daylight hours are shorter, which means trekkers may need to start their trekking earlier in the day and finish earlier in the afternoon.

Essential Info:


Acclimatization is an important aspect of trekking to Annapurna Base Camp, as the high altitude can cause altitude sickness if proper precautions are not taken. AMS is caused by reduced air pressure and lower oxygen levels at high altitudes, and it can cause symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue.

Here are some tips for acclimatization during the trek:

  • Take your time: It is important to take your time and not rush the trek. The Annapurna Base Camp trek takes 12 days and it is recommended to follow a gradual ascent to allow your body to acclimatize properly.
  • Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water helps to prevent altitude sickness by keeping your body hydrated. Aim to drink at least 3-4 liters of water each day during the trek.
  • Eat well: Eating well and consuming plenty of carbohydrates and protein is also important for acclimatization. Eating foods such as dal bhat, which is a traditional Nepali dish made with lentils, rice, and vegetables, is a good option as it is high in protein and carbohydrates.
  • Rest: Take plenty of rest breaks throughout the trek, especially on acclimatization days. Resting helps your body to adjust to the altitude and recover from physical exertion.
  • Altitude Medication: Some trekkers may benefit from taking medication to prevent or treat altitude sickness. Consult with a doctor before the trek and carry the necessary medications with you.

Electricity and an internet connection will always be available in urban areas. However, during hikes, there can be power outages in some rural areas.
