Weather Conditions in October

change start

October begins the most popular time to trek, with moderate temperatures, clear skies in the wake of the monsoon, and a low chance of rain and snow. In recent years, the monsoon rains have receded later with weather patterns typically stabilizing in mid-October. While the chance of snow is decreased, there is the possibility of a heavy snowfall at higher elevations. If ill-timed and prolonged, this can make it difficult to cross some passes.

The long day hike to this remote sacred lake at the foot of Annapurna Fang is a strenuous but rewarding side trip climbing 1000 m from Khopra Danda to this small lake at 4660 m  (15,289 ft). You will need to pack a lunch and bring water or water purification equipment with you since there is no lodging along the route or at the lake. This hike brings you right next to the soaring rock and ice of the Annapurna Massif.
