Annapurna Circuit Rainy Season

Looking for advice about trekking the Annapurna Circuit during June-July (rainy season?)

I am planning on hiking the Annapurna Circuit during June-July (the rainy season). I have heard some conflicting things about doing so. I don't mind the rain, or the leeches-I am from an area that has lots of rain, and creepy-crawlies don't bother me. I would really appreciate any advice about this plan.

1) Is it possible to hike this trek during these months? Does the rain create completely impassable conditions, or is it merely uncomfortable to deal with the monsoons?

2) If parts of the trail wash out, does that mean you simply cannot continue, or that you just have to slog through the mud to make it to the next tea house?

Thanks everyone! Reply to this

Most do not prefer to trek in Rainy Season.

But I personally think that it will be a very good experience even in June and July, since now-a days, roads are very fine than before.

For Further advices, I would like you to refer to some companies with their web links😞I hope you will find the best one to make your trip memorable)

Dear Trekker,

It is my great pleasure to reply you through this travel forum.

Juna and July is rainy season in Nepal. But if you do not mind rail and leach you can do it. As you have studied about nepal, we have different landscape during the annapurna trek. So, you wil have rain only below 3000meter and above it cloud can't pass over as they are heavy and annapurnas are very hign. Above 3000meter, as we call it rain shadow area. So, do plan to do a trek but you have to have a field staff with you. That can be done with Guide or a Sherpa.
For more details you can drop a question here

Hi there,
June July is rainny season in Nepal so off course you will face the rain and leeches on the trails But as you are trekking in Annapurna circuit you can see the beautiful mountain views from( chame,Pisang,manag,Yak kharka,throngla pass and Jomsom).You don,t have to be worry if the trail blocked often with the rain cuz there is allways option to cross the villages and to get tea houses.
If you need help pm to me.
wish you have great day

I don't suggest you to do this trek during the monsoon. You can visit the sites provided by Nepal Tourism Board for more information.
Thanks Reply to this

Yes you can trek at any season in nepal but the best time to trek is Sept - Nov. However you can trek at any season.

Dear Will,

It is good to trek in Nepal even in Rainy Season. While doing Annapurna Circuit Trek, it is however, necessary, to bag up some rainy jacket and big boot in order to protect yourself.

i have done most of my treking in rainy season, which people calls off season. but, i find it very nice to trek on monsoon as, it is only the season for nature to be a real green. i mean treking really depends on peoples interest and intension. if u like really green forest and water then it is very good. what i also find interesting on treking in monsoon is that...its a lil bit more relaxing than treking in sunny days...

Annapurna trekking has been wildly recognized as a naturalist's paradise. The upper sub-alpine steppe environment harbors some of the rare snow leopards and blue sheep. Other areas of the region protect bird species such as the multi-coloured Impeyan, kokla, blood pheasant amongst a multitude of other birds, butterflies and insects. Many plants native to Nepal are found in this forest. The conservation area has 100 varieties of orchids and some of the richest temperate rhododendron forest in the world.

For thousands of years people of diverse ethnic backgrounds have scratched a livelihood out of its steep hillsides. The advent of tourism and the phenomenal rise in human population has triggered a process of environmental deterioration. In 1968 Nepal's King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation launched the Annapurna Conservation Area Project.
