    Know before you go

    •  Autumn (September-November) and spring (March-May) are the best seasons for the Annapurna Base Camp trek. The weather is sunny and warm and outstanding views are plentiful. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature, then taking this trip during winter (December, January, and February) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh, and during summer or monsoon seasons (June to August), you can expect rain.
