Weather In Annapurna Base Camp

During the spring, the day starts nice and clear but progressively gets windier and cloudier which leads to frequent afternoon showers. This to and fro of weather dance finally ends up to the monsoon reaching its full glory around mid-June.

Monsoon seasons signals a grinding halt to the trekking sector of the Annapurna region but in contrast, the wildlife is in full vigor. Wildflowers eagerly anticipate the monsoon, Himalayan Thars get busy tending to their newborns and Himalayan Monals work hard displaying to prospective mates. The whole land rejuvenates during Monsoon season which ends in September.

When September rolls around, the clouds leave their hold of the sky creating a perfect backdrop of clear and blue skies. The mountains wake up from their deep slumber during Monsoon season and display their full bloom of beauty. This makes for a perfect trekking season up until November but a bit of crowded.

By December, winter is in full swing with occasional heavy snow. Since there are a lot fewer people and more wildlife, it is a perfect time to trek for the prepared. However, caution must be exercised to its fullest to prepare completely for the winter weatherperson of the Himalayas.
