When is the Best Time for Annapurna Base Camp Trek?

The Autumn season(Mid September to November) is the best time for Annapurna Trek. At the same time, the spring season, from March to May, is good for ABC Trek. Mansoon season start from June to August, and it is a rainy season. This time is best for botanists because one can see clear sky and mountains. March, April, and May are best for trekkers as they can witness different blooming flowers and rhododendron trees full of Red flowers. Different species of rhododendron are seen in the way during the peak season of March, April, and May. The view of Mount Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchre, and Annapurna is a superb view during this time. The sun touches the snow-capped mountain peaks and other Himalayan ranges, which is heart-warming scenery for travelers. There are few trekkers in winter December to February, as the temperature is cold in the morning and one during the day. If you want to avoid the crowd on ABC Trekking, you can choose winter as well.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek Cost Details:

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is not costly as another trek.USD 770 per person includes Guide, Porters, and hotel, meals included. However, this trip package can be customized depending on the group sizes and travel time. Because few trek leaders and porters may adjust the larger group and the hotel and room sharing can reduce the cost for a bigger group. Solo traveler costs may slightly increase on your demand which includes luxury hotel extra drinks and food that you wish to eat during the trek.

As a side note, if you want the same experience but with a bit more challenge, we provide you with trekking packages for Everest Base Camp as well. On this route, along with the increase in difficulty level, the trekking cost will increase as well. Therefore, you need to be prepared for both high levels of trekking difficulty and trekking costs if you choose to go on the Everest Base Camp trek. 

As a side note, it would be wise to carry all the necessary trekking permits and trekking gears with you for the Annapurna Base Camp trek or any other trek that has a steep ascent for that matter. If you do not have the trekking permits, you will not be allowed access to the higher areas and Annapurna Sanctuary. In fact, you can only access this Trekking route if you have the permits, such as the TIMS card.

At the same time, if you do not have proper trekking gear, you will face several problems such as altitude sickness, difficulty traveling, and more.
