Best time to go on Annapurna Circuit Trekking:

The best time to go on Annapurna Circuit Trek is from spring (March to May) and autumn (September to December). You will get to witness breathtaking views of the Himalayan Mountains and scenery during this time of the year. Also, the clear and bright weather makes the journey more joyful. Likewise, in winter, the heavy snowfall and extreme cold make the trip more challenging. Similarly, during the monsoon, the region receives rainfall, making the trail slippery and dangerous, and hard to pass Thorung La Pass. If you want to do a trek in the Winter season, like in January and February, you can reach Manang and back to the same way to Pokhara without passing Thoring La Pass.
