There are specially four seasons in Nepal: Spring (March-May), Summer (June-August), Autumn (Late September-November), and Winter (December-February). Here is some idea of the season of Nepal.

Spring Season (March- May)

This season starts when flowers blossom in the forest. In-fact Spring is the most beautiful season of Nepal when the nature opens perfectly
spring season trek Rhododendron forest during the Spring season near Ghorepani The green hills of Nepal get the cover shades of blossomed rhododendron of different color. In Everest region there are wide range of white rhododendron, while in Annapurna region pink and purple color of Rhododendron. There are different type of Magnolia flowers that makes a forest white and beautiful. The wild birds and animals come out to relish the blissful spring.

Winter season is a cold season of Nepal. The temperatures get’s very low in all over the Nepal. The nights can be freezing cold as the temperature falls low after the sunset. Snow fall is common in the Himalayan and upper hilly region of Nepal.
This is not a good season to trek in Nepal. However to do tour in Nepal is still fantastic, Short trekking can be still done during the winter season, the tour can be done any time of year.
During the winter season the High passes like Thorung La, Larke la, Kang la, Cho la pass will remain closed during the peak winter season. You need to check the details of the place before you plan winter treks.

Summer / Monsoon (June-August)
Monsoon is most busiest season in Nepal because the most of Nepalese people are involved in Agriculture. The country side is busy for planting rice and other crops for the whole year. In this season people also plant millet for floor in country side.People also harvest corn in this season.
It is a great oppertunity to see Nepalese farms as the farmers sing, play and work together as they plant paddy seedlings.
Visiting in the country side, as well as travelling to the mountain may be disturbing due to cloudy sky, landslides, as well as flood which is common during the period. During this time you can travel talking some good advice and well preparation.
Even this is monsoon season trekking region like Mustang, Dolpa and Simikot are still best zone for trekking during this time the reason is Rain shadow area and do not receive the monsoon rain. Annapurna circuit is not good to do this time.

Autumn ( October, November )

This is the best season for the Nepal trek and travel. During this time when most of the travelers visit Nepal to not miss the the glance of Nepal. After monsoon stoops the weather is really cool and the scenery is just awesome that everything is just above the perfect.
During this month there is stable high pressure, giving clear skies, sunshine, warm days and cool nights. The clear skies are great for viewing the beauty of the magnificent mountains.
Autumn season trekMount Manaslu Scenery from the village Lho, Towering in the Height of 8153 Meter, Also known as Japanese Mountain

Thousands of tourist around the globe seek best mountain visibility and adventure trek during Autumn. As a result trekking trails like Everest Base camp, Annapurna base camp, Annapurna circuit trek and many other routes get thousand of tourist. For Adventure trekkers and photographer this is the best season to achieve their targets.
Autumn season is also a great time to visit national park in southern Nepal where the temperature is still cooler. In this period people have a 3 great Festival in Nepal they are namely Dashain, Tihar and Chath. You can see how they celebrate their festival if you visit the Nepal on this perfect season.

Annapurna circuit difficulty

You don’t need to be marathon fit to complete the Annapurna circuit, it’s definitely worth putting in some hard yards at the gym, in the mountains or around the block before you leave.

The most of days are manageable; 5-6hrs and 10-15 K.M, with plenty of rest, long lunch breaks and a single rest days in between.

But on the pass day of throng la it need at least 12 hours at high altitude, starting at 4am. And this day is quite tough because you need to climb 800 Meter then decent down around 1600 Meter. But slowly you can do this.

Our advice is do lite exercise before you come to Nepal. If you are young then it is not that much necessary. due to walking all day from the beginning you would get use to it.

Annapurna circuit trek group

If you are willing to trek with group but you are single that is ok. We manage trek group to you with your time and needs. This is pretty tough to set up all in right way but we manage as we can.
See, when you hike with a group, you’re hiking with a ready-made cheer squad, a team of local guides and porters who a) know the way b) know the signs of altitude sickness (more on that below) and c) can share tidbits of info you’d otherwise miss out on.

The advantage with group
  1. Generally with organized group Everything like (including tea house accommodation, permits, etc) is organised for you by the company, you just need to bring snacks and money for your extra meals / tips for the trek staff.
  2. Travelling with a reputable trek company also means that your local guides and porters are exceptionally well-known in local knowledge, equipped, first aid, emergency response, etc.
  3. Your porters also carry your heavier luggage, so you just need to keep putting one step in front of the other with your day-pack on your back.
The disadvantage
