Nepal’s winter is defined by its freezing season, which brings frozen around the Himalayas but till December weather would be very clear and not too cold around the Annapurna valley. If you are planning to do the trek to the Annapurna region in December will be very fewer trekkers and peace around the Annapurna region.

A summer season is also a good option although the temperatures can be very warm but light rain on the mountain. Does not matter which time of year you choose, Nepal High Trek & Expedition will arrange for a memorable epic adventure on the Annapurna Base Camp.
