Major Highlights of Annapurna Circuit Trek
Autumn (September to November) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for trekking in the Annapurna region. The weather is sunny and warm with clearer. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature, then taking this trip during winter (December to February) could also be an option. However, the temperature during the winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the summer or monsoon season (June to August) will be affected by rain, but the summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
This is a moderate trek suitable for walkers who can walk up to 6-7 hours a day with a light rucksack. On some days, however, we might have to walk up to 8 hours. Walking at higher altitudes has more physical demands compared to the lower ones, but it is not worrisome as long as we are average fit, have a positive attitude and strong determination. It is highly beneficial if we exercise and jog regularly to enhance our strength, stamina, and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset, but no technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, blood diseases, and allergies should inform Pinnacle Expedition before booking the trek. We also recommend that you consult your doctor(s) before the trip.
