14 day Annapurna Circuit trek from Kathmandu- when to go there

The best time to do the Annapurna Circuit trek is during the two primary trekking seasons in Nepal, which offer the most favorable weather and clear mountain views. These seasons are:

Autumn (September to November): This is the most popular trekking season in Nepal, including the Annapurna Circuit. The weather is generally stable, with clear skies and moderate temperatures. The views of the mountains are stunning during this time. However, it can get quite crowded on the trail, so if you prefer quieter trekking, you might want to consider other times.

Spring (March to May): Spring is another excellent time to trek the Annapurna Circuit. The weather is still relatively stable, and the blooming rhododendron forests add extra beauty to the trekking experience. Like in autumn, the mountain views are usually clear and breathtaking. This season is also quite popular among trekkers.

Both these seasons offer enjoyable trekking conditions, but keep in mind that there will be more trekkers and accommodations may get booked up quickly during these periods. If you want a less crowded experience, you can also consider trekking during the pre-monsoon season in late spring or the post-monsoon season in late autumn.

Avoid the winter months (December to February) as it can be extremely cold and snowy at higher altitudes, making trekking more challenging and risky. Similarly, the monsoon season (June to August) should be avoided due to heavy rainfall and the possibility of landslides and difficult trail conditions.

To summarize, the best times for the 14-day Annapurna Circuit trek from Kathmandu are either in the autumn (September to November) or spring (March to May). Plan your trip accordingly and enjoy the stunning beauty of the Annapurna region!
