Would you like to request a specific guide?

If you do not specify a guide, a request will be sent to all available guides (once a payment is made and the trek is confirmed). Once confirmed, you can choose from the guides who indicated that they would like to lead your trek, or ask us to recommend a guide.

The route was opened for trekking as recently as 2012 and now has lodges along the trail, so it can be done as a teahouse trek. The trek has the advantage of drawing far fewer trekkers than the more well-known destinations like Poon Hill and Annapurna Basecamp. The trail ascends the ridge beneath Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) peak and boasts some of the best views anywhere of this picturesque mountain.

Weather Conditions in June

change start

The middle of June typically marks the beginning of the monsoon. Clear mornings are still possible but get increasingly less likely towards the end of the month. Be prepared for rain and hot humid weather in the low elevation valleys. The added moister means the hills are beginning to change to their vibrant monsoon green. The weather is generally a little drier than in the low valleys at high altitude, but cloud cover can be frustrating when trekking to viewpoints. As always in the spring, early morning is your best chance for clear skies.

On average there are 17 days with precipitation in June. The highest point on the trek is Mardi Himal Base Camp at 4500 m. During June, expect high temperatures of around 10.4°C (51°F) and lows down to 0.4°C (33°F) at Mardi Himal Base Camp.

Extra rest days and overnights can be added once the itinerary is created. However any side trips must be added in this step before the itinerary is created.
