The best time to do this trek is in the spring (Mar - May) & fall (Sep - Nov). It can be done in the summer, monsoon months as well, but be sure to prepare for the rain. You can also do this trek in winter, but best to inquire with one of our local experts if all the necessary teahouses will be open at this time. Avalanches can also be a risk during the winter months, so it is important to trek with a knowledgeable guide who is familiar with the conditions.
You should buy Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP) and Trekker's Information Management System (TIMS) which are to be displaced at the checkpoint in the beginning.
