The best time for the Annapurna base camp trek 5 days

Visiting the Annapurna region, every season has its specialty and offers peculiar scenic beauty.

Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to travel to the Annapurna base camp trek, which lasts five days. During this period, ABC’s short Trek offers ample opportunity to surround yourself with beautiful snow-capped mountains.
Due to the moderate weather and crystal apparent temperature during these seasons, travelers can enjoy most of their trek journey. The beautiful rhododendrons and colorful forests filled with oak, alpine, and terrace farming are the perks that attract more than thousands of tourists during the spring season. The temperature is cold at higher altitudes above 4000m, making it difficult to survive during winter.

Thus, it would help to carry enough warm clothes, a pair of down jackets, and blankets to avoid catching a cold. Other than that, for solo travelers who love the solitude of the environment and want to enjoy themselves, the winter season can never fail to meet their expectations.
However, winter has the most transparent view of the mountains with no precipitation.
Plan your trip well, pack your bag, and head towards the foot of the giant Mountains before it is too late.
