Nepal experiences major 4 seasons Summer (June-August), Winter( December-February), Spring (March-May) and Autumn(September-December). Choosing a best decision to travel offers you more glimpse and pleasure. The best season for travelling Annapurna base camp trekking is during Spring/Autumn. Spring offers the blooming Rhododendron as the trail is more attractive where all the trails turns into red pink and white flowers. However in autumn the skies are clear and snow-capped mountain views are amazing.


2. Altitude Sickness can be a thing to consider

Trekking is obviously an amazing experience and a highly recommended activity if you are fit and good to go. Although short treks can be a cup of everybody’s tea, while trekking above 3000m there are good chances that one may suffer from high altitude sickness.  Normally altitude sickness occurs when your body does not adjust in high elevation where the oxygen level is very low. Symptoms of altitude sickness include headache, vomiting, loss of sleep etc. If you are prone to asthma and other issues like respiratory distress, consult your doctor before heading north. Guides are well trained and experiences for altitude trekking and sickness problems.


3. Mental and physical wellness is essential

Annapurna Base Camp trek is a moderate walk through the lap of Annapurna Himalayan ranges.  It is not a technical climb and you do not need to have previous experiences or any altitude experiences to complete the trek. However, you have to be physically fit and must prepare yourself mentally to complete the trek. Further, you may also have to get out of your comfort zone and experience a whole new level of accommodation and fooding during your trek. It will be a life time experience but only if you are ready to hit the road.
