Annapurna Base Camp Trek in Spring Season
This is the second preferred trekking season in Nepal. The blossoming wild flora such as Rhododendrons and warmer weather brings additional trekkers throughout this period.
Early springs tend to be the average chilly, with the common daytime temperature is mid-low at lower altitudes (800-2000m). This makes the trekking in the region as lower Annapurna terribly pleasant.
April is the best time for the crystal clear views. The common daytime temperature at lower altitudes is around 10°C while nights are usually simply on freezing. Obviously the higher you go the colder it gets. Over 4000m is usually freezing the cold in the evenings and mornings.
May is sometimes a lot of warmer than April because the heat builds towards monsoon period. Throughout May a strange haze often seems over the mountains that can be seen at low altitudes.
Likewise, at the high altitudes, the views are crystal clear. During May, the day temperatures reach 20°C at lower altitudes and night temperatures are around 5°C. During this time, also you must expect freezing cold weather at the higher altitudes.
The lower sections of the Annapurna region will get uncomfortably hot. Here the climate might turn into arid so you need to drink many water and keep in mind to wear in layers.
